Junior Swimmers of the Month - May 2017

Lucas Giles – Lucas has shown a great positive attitude since progressing into the Development 2 squad. He comes to training ready for the session ahead and will always put in 100% effort. He has coped well with the higher training load and has increased his strength and stamina. Keep up the good work Lucas!

Caitlin Barrie – Caitlin has made her way through all 5 of our Academy stages and has recently moved up to the Development 1 squad. It has been brilliant to see the progress that Caitlin has made along the way in terms of her technique and strength. Caitlin has also been swimming for our Diddy team and will always swim her best in her races. Well Done Caitlin! 

KASC Open Day

Hi everyone

It’s less than 3 weeks to go to the KASC open day!!!! This is an opportunity to showcase what KASC does so your help is urgently needed. We need lots of help to run the day  - this can be an hour, a morning/afternoon/all day – it’s up to you or if you can’t make it, provide tombola prizes or cakes.

Date – Sunday 2nd July

Where – Kettering pool

Time – 10.00am – 3.30pm

We need –

  • swimmers -  to help on poolside and to act as ‘demonstrators’
  • parenta - to help poolside/run stalls/look after the bouncy castle/take money/sign certificates and give out medals etc/
  • Someone to label up the Tombola prizes  at least the day before the event
  • Tombola prizes – you can give these to a committee member or coach as soon as you are able to ( Carol is at Kettering pool during the Monday and Sunday sessions)
  • Cakes –  to bring on the day
  • and anything else we haven't thought of – please let us know if you think of anything – all ideas welcome!

We would like to donate some of the money raised to charity – if you have some ideas please let us know

Do you know somewhere we can distribute leaflets/advertise?

Summer Break

The last normal training session before the summer break is on Friday 21st July and we return on Monday August 21st.

There will be a fun session for all squads at Oundle school pool on Sunday 23rd July, 6.30-8.30pm

To help swimmers maintain fitness through the summer (  the County sprint Championships are in early September) we will be running ONE training session a week during the 4 week break for squads  Development 1 and above. This will be at Kettering pool on Wednesday evening, 7.30-9.00pm. Costs per session will be £5 (done on a pay as you go basis) or £17.50 for all 4 sessions (paid in advance). For these sessions we ask that parents please pay by cash or cheque rather than by BACS ( there will be someone available to take money before the sessions)

Best regards

Senior Swimmers of the month - April 2017

Fatima Noureddine

Fatima has a positive, hard working and enthusiastic attitude towards swimming and is a pleasure to coach.   She  asks questions and has a desire to learn and improve, giving 100% to all aspects of her swimming, kicking  and drill work.  Fatima, continue with your drills, keep focused on continued improvement  and you will guarantee faster times.

Ben Tompkins

Ben has always had great arm speed and is beginning to use that asset by mixing it with improved technique. He always works hard and is competitive in training.  Over the last month he has challenged the top swimmers in the club.  Ben continues to improve his times getting pb after pb.  Ben, continue to believe, be committed and start focusing on much bigger goals.

LAND TRAINING Seniors

Due to an event at Oundle School on Tuesday 30th May 2017, we are not able to use the Oundle facilities so the senior training session has been moved from Oundle to the Cornmarket, Main Hall.
We will be starting this training session earlier so the swimmers can get an earlier night.
Cornmarket 7pm to 8.30pm. 
Please dress appropriately for land training, trainers: tshirt, shorts or joggers, no jeans.

Please bring with you your kick boards, a drink and a positive mental attitude.
