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.
Bob achieved 6th in the Men's 70-74 years 100m Breast Stroke and 4th in the 200m Breast Stroke.
- Congratulations Bob ! "

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS - UPDATE
Just a reminder that the deadline for the champs entry forms is THIS TUESDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER. You can give them to your coach or any committee member. Cheques or cash only please (cheques made payable to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club)
We still need people to volunteer to help. In particular we need parents to do the drinks for each evening and someone to help Jo Freeman on the door. We also need someone to do the announcing for the first evening ( training will be given)
We are looking for lots of raffle prizes. Again, these can be given to committee members or your coach as soon as you wish. I have quite a few people who have offered to do cakes to sell on each night but we do need more! Please bring these on each day of the champs.
Club Championships 2016
Please find attached the information for the club championships at the Waendel Leisure Centre, Wellingborough. Please read everything carefully. We would encourage all swimmers to enter but if you aren’t sure, please discuss with your coach. There are medals to be won at the championships and then awards to be given out at the awards night in the new year as well. You have to be in it to win it!!!!
Champs dates are ( all Saturdays) - 22nd and 29th October, 5th November,3rd December. Remember, a swimmer must have become a member before 21st August this year to be able to enter.
Closing date for entry forms is Tuesday 20th September. Please do ask for help if you are not sure.
You can hand forms to your coach OR to Carol and Amanda at Kettering (at the Sunday and Monday sessions) or to Hilary at Oundle sessions.
This year, for the first time, we are running a prize draw for the swimmers with their entry forms. So, if a swimmer just enters races in one of the 4 sessions, that’s one prize draw entry, if they enter races in 2 sessions that’s two prize draw entries and so on.
For such a big event, we obviously will need lots of help from parents so if you can help in any way then please let us know as soon as possible. If our parents who are officials could also let us know which sessions they are available for please.
