Why Rob's Swim School?

30+ Years Teaching Swimming

Roberta’s love for teaching swimming started when at the age of 14, she used to assist swimming lessons at her club and at 16, used to teach at the Amateur Swimming Association Swimming School. She worked for several years in the MFA Swimming School and in a few other swimming schools. In 2007, an opportunity came up and she started organising her own lessons. In 2008, she attended a course in the UK to acquire her ASA Level 1 Certificate in teaching Aquatics. It was then that Roberta felt the importance of having a structure in her swimming school.

She introduced several classes at different levels including an assessment sheet at the end of each term, for the child and parent to be able to follow the progress of their child. In 2010, she furthered her studies and obtained the ASA Level 2 Certificate in Teaching Aquatics. Roberta is one of the few persons in Malta holding this qualification. In 2015, she continued to study further when achieving her ASA Level 2 Award in Coaching Aquatic Pre-Fundamentals, to be able to also teach children as young as 6 months. She also achieved the STA International Lifesaving Certificate for Swimming Teachers.
