Open/Close Menu SportMalta is the Government of Malta’s entity for the development and promotion of Sport in Malta.

#OnTheMove offers a dynamic programme in over 50 different sports in over 10 localities in Malta and Gozo. The programme runs from October to May. The programme is open from babies of 6 months up to adulthood.

The popular programme Parent and child is open to young children from 6 months up to 3 years. This programme invites parents to join the session and learn ways how to keep young children motivated and engaged in physical activity. This programme is offered in swimming, SportsFUN and gymnastics.

From 4 years up to 6 years, children can join SportsFUN or gymnastics where special focus on body awareness and the fundamentals are the objective of these sessions. This foundation programme covers the development of movement and literacy. As a result of this programme children should then be sufficiently motivated and ‘movement literate’ to participate in specific sports and start developing their sports performance. This programme is concerned with ensuring that all children learn basic movement skills, enjoy being active and develop knowledge and understanding of their bodies and how they move following a specific syllabus based on: ABCs (agility, balance, coordination and speed).

The programme SportSTART focuses to introduce the different sports to the children between the ages of 7 and 10. The key role in this programme is to introduce children to a broad range of activities so that they are sufficiently proficient and knowledgeable to have the confidence and competence to make the choice to take up a sport. Our programmes also ensure to bridge the gap between the fundamentals and the specific sport.

Fundamentals of dance is offered from the age of 4. Different styles are taught in our programme, namely: Hip Hop, Ballet, contemporary and jazz. Line dancing, sequence and salsa are offered for the 17+. Over 30 types of sports are offered at different complexes for children aged 9 onwards. Youngsters can choose a sport from an extensive list and learn the skills, tactics and rules of that sport. Sport Associations and Clubs partner with SportMalta in the provision of training for most of the sports.

The Adult Programme is designed to encourage parents, especially, but also the general public to take up activity at least once a week. Our programme is flexible enough to embrace all abilities, from the very beginner to the most veteran and trained athlete. During most of the children’s’ sessions, adults are invited to support their children and join in the fun by taking part in the adult activity class held concurrently with the children’s activity. Adult sessions include: HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Fit Mix, Pilates, Yoga, Salsa Fitness, Aerobics, Swimming, Zero to 5k running

Swimming sessions are also available. Lesson objectives are specifically related to the age and ability of the participants. For beginners, these include increasing confidence in water, learning how to float without floatation devices, and enjoy water safely. More advanced courses aimed at teaching and improving the stroke technique for each of the four strokes.
