Power SwimCamp's HISTORY
Thanks to an Andra Romagnoli’s idea
(Andrea was the manager of the Borgo S. Lorenzo swimming
pool complex, close to Florence), Giovanni Franceschi
(in sponsorship relationship with the complex),
Tanya Vannini (head of the swimming coaches
in the same place and also 400m freestyle Italian
record-holder), Giorgio Lamberti (world champion
and record-holder for the 200m freestyle, and also
Tanya’s fiancé) and Marco Colombo (member of
the Italian swim team at the Olympics and professionally
liked to Giorgio) are founding an improvement Camp
dedicated to local swimmers: Nuota con Noi (“Swim
with Us”) is born!.
From January 2005 to the Summer of
1998 the sports complex of Borgo S. Lorenzo is hosting
nine Nuota con Noi events, starting with local
swimmers than “opening” to enthusiasts coming from
- winter 2001
Aided by some positive events (Giorgio
and Tanya getting married and moving to another City,
Marco focussing his professional activity in another
Region and Giovanni … Having a growing family), Nuota
con Noi … goes in deep sleep!
Giovanni, coming with his first-born
to a “swimming training test” just in the same Borgo
S. Lorenzo’s complex, lives again the “good feelings”
of Nuota con Noi so decides to give new life
to the project of swimming stages; the new name for
his project is Top Swimming School.
The extraordinary B2K BALENA2000 sports
and beach complex in Viareggio gives hospitality for
the three foreseen events.
The new brand NUOTO+ comes
out, to achieve the target to easier transmit the
main aims of the project: positive values, not only
related to swimming.
To the three “historical” appointments
at the B2K BALENA2000 are adding Club Santa Cristiana
(Numana, close to Ancona) and at Città del
Mare (Terrasini, close to Palermo in Sicily).
In this way NUOTO+, is “touching” the Tirreno
sea, the Adriatic Sea and the South of Italy: at this
point to really be “at 360°” only an appointment in
the mountains is missing. It will arrive in the Summer
Città del Mare gives room to
the VALTUR village at Ostuni (Brindisi), where
is also starting a brand new service where the experience
and professionalism of NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp are offering to the
village’s guests swimming lessons during all the Summer
… With the “plus” sign!
The Club Santa Cristiana gives room
to the VALTUR village in Capo Rizzuto (Crotone), where
che NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp’s technical team offers its experience
and passion – during all the Summer season not only
to a single VALTUR village, but in five of them …
Ostuni, Simeri, Baia di Conte, Nicotera and Capo Rizzuto.
The partnership with ARENA ITALIA
becomes even closer. Even if Giovanni’s company Ceschi
& Ceschi is still managing all the organization and
the administration activities of NUOTO+ SwimCamp,
practically speaking ARENA becomes the main brand
for the several projects linked to NUOTOPIU' Power
SwimCamp. At the same time NUOTO+ SwimCamp logos are
renewed and "ARENA EXPERIENCE" becomes part of them.
The partnership with VALTUR is again
confirmed for the "family oriented" villages in Ostuni,
Simeri, Baia di Conte, Nicotera and Capo Rizzuto is
till NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp’s offering to the guests of the villages
the swimming lessons with .. The “+” sign.
An extraordinary success for the SwimCamps
this year thanks also to the super event of the World
championships in Rome with all the participants to
the Roma’s SwimCamp present at the Stadio del Nuoto
to see the swimming finals ... Of course also the
partnership with VALTUR is confirmed.
The big news of this year is the grand
opening of NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp to the International participants!
Thanks to the web ste with full translation into English,
French and German and to the NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp coaches capable
to follow in the best way also the participants who
are not speaking Italian, boys and girls now have
the opportunity to grow new friendships and to swim
with people of the same age coming from other Countries!
A NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp just after
Christmas and the New Year’s Day? Something like a
“revision”, maybe after a week spent with us during
the Summer? This idea was growing in NUOTOPIU' Power
SwimCamp since a long time, but until now it was on
hold due to the problem to find the right location
to fit our needs during this “high season” period.
But this was so till Winter 2011, now it’s coming
NUOTOPIU' Winter SwimCamp in Riccione.
NUOTOPIU' Power SwimCamp could not be attracted by the
Sardinia, adding the very much appreciated hospitality
of the Geovillage in Olbia to create a memorable marriage.
