Naples @ Home
The Naples Tiger Sharks hosted their seasons last meet weekend for the 2018-2019 season, with swimmers from Bahrain, Lisbon, Sigonella, and Vicenza diving off the blocks. While not our last meet, as the team still has potentially two away meets, as well as Southern Divisionals, it was a dust off the holiday fixings to show the coaches and team mates that they hadn't been slacking for the entire holiday break. Great job swimmers!
Long Distance Champs
Congratulations to all of our Naples Tiger Sharks swimmers that qualified and swam at Long Distance Champs this past weekend in Brugge, Belgium. In addition to many of our swimmers dropping time we also had several EFSL records broken! The days were long, and the 1500m Freestyle events were even longer, but our swimmers pushed through and finished strong!
Naples @ Home
The Naples Tiger Sharks hosted a three day meet this past Veteran's Day weekend, with swimmers from Aviano, Sigonella, Stuttgart, and Vicenza converging on the pool for a chlorine filled weekend. Many swimmers left with new personal bests. We also had a good number of swimmers that qualified for Champs in both Long Distance & Short Course events!
Naples @ Sigonella "Double Dip"
Sigonella Swordfish hosted this past weekends "Double Dip" meet in sunny Sicily. Thankfully the weather held, and we had two great days of swimming! Naples swimmers were very well represented on the podium at the conclusion of Saturday's Pentathlon, as well as many coming back again on Sunday to take top spots once again. While the team did have a few DQs on both days, they all put forth tremendous effort in training, which certainly showed in the pool. Congratulations to all swimmers!
Fall/Winter Swim Registration is OPEN
Tiger Shark Families -- Private Registration Links are being sent out via email. Please submit the payment and updated physical prior to the 1st day of swim.

Please email NPSHeadCoach@gmail.com for any questions.
EFSL Champs - London, England
Congratulations to all swimmers who swam in London this past weekend! For many swimmers it was a once in a life time opportunity to swim in the same pool where legendary Olympian Michael Phelps swam. A few could be seen clustering around the same block where he or their favorite swimmer stood, while parents captured those moments with their cameras. Even with the cold weather, the team did well with many dropping time in their respective events. Aside from the awe of the pool, families also took some time to explore London and the surrounding areas.
Naples Wins the EFSL Southern Divisionals
Swimmers from all over Southern Division (Aviano, Lisbon, Naples, Rota, Sigonella, and Vicenza) converged on Naples this past Saturday for a long day of competitive swimming. Not only did Naples secure the Southern Division Champs for the twelfth year, but we also saw both Team and EFSL records broken, and swimmers (all teams) dropping time. Congratulations Naples on keeping the streak going!
