Welcome to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club

Kettering Swimming Club is the premium competitive club within Kettering and the surrounding areas. We are a dynamic and exciting club with a long and proud history. Originally based at the Victoria Baths in Bath Lane Kettering, we moved to our present site on London Road in 1984.

Founded on the 15th of December 1914 the Kettering Men’s Swimming and Water Polo Club had 40 swimmers and 20 committee members. Membership to the club at the time cost 2 shillings and 2 pence (around 12.5p) and pool hire for 1 gala was 1 Guinea (about £1.05). Today’s galas take a minimum of 3 hours pool hire and it costs £60 per hour.

Gemma Simms – Junior Head Coach 

Since the beginning of January 2016 I have taken on the role of Junior Head Coach. Most of you know me as I was previously Assistant Junior Head Coach. Claire wanted to
spend more time at her Sports Therapy Clinic and after
completing my qualifications and Sports Coaching degree I
decided coaching swimming was the career path for me.

I’ve been a member of the club since I was 7 so for
nearly 17 years! I started as a beginner and like many of you worked my way up to the senior squads. I swam in galas, open meets, county, regional and national (Welsh) competitions. 

I am looking forward to spending many more years at the club as a swimmer and
more importantly a coach. The club as a whole is doing fantastically well at the minute and it is great to be a part of that. Onwards and upwards for KASC!

Autumn League Round 2

Well done to everyone that swam at the Autumn League Round 2.  A team came 3rd on the night and B team 5th.

Results from the weekend can now be found on the website. 

We would not normally see the B team with the A team in round 2 but I have asked why and it is a random draw for some clubs at venues.  Not a great venue for swimmers of Spectators

B team - 19 PB’s which is great only 3 DQ’s

Well done to Euan Chatburn swimming in his first gala. 

A team - 16 PB’s which is great, 4 DQ’s, Please note down the PB’s 

Thank you to all the swimmers, you all got the right lane and with a lack of space you all behaved very well.  Thank you to all those who helped out.

KASC Team Manager

Junior Swimmer of the Month - Oct 17

The first winner of October’s Junior Swimmer of the Month is Harris Chacksfield. Harris has only been with the club for 6 months and in this time he has progressed to the final stage of the Academy. He always trains hard and gives his best in everything he is asked to do during training sessions. Harris entered 2 events at the first session of the club champs and picked up a bronze medal and a 4th place – not bad going for his first ever champs! Congratulations Harris.

The second recipient of this month’s award is Magenta Kenyon. Over the last year Magenta has progressed through the Academy and into the Development 1 squad. Magenta has a fantastic attitude towards her training and always put in 100%. She listens to her coaches and is always keen to learn and improve. Magenta has also started competing in galas and always puts in a great performance on the night. She will swim the races she has been picked for and has been quite a busy swimmer in recent galas! Keep up the good work Magenta!
