KASC Team Manager
Isabelle James - Over the last few months it has been great to watch Isabelle progress in terms of her stamina and skills and also her confidence. Isabelle always listens to her coaches and is very keen to work hard to improve. She has also recently began competing in galas for the club and always puts in 100%. She never moans and will try things despite not having done them before. Keep up the hard work Isabelle!
Leyton Etheridge - Leyton has been training very hard recently and has just progressed to the top lane of Stage 7. He always puts in maximum effort and will keep going even when he finds a set difficult. Leyton has worked hard to progress with his strokes and is keen to keep improving. Leyton enjoys practising his racing skills and I look forward to seeing him in upcoming competitions. Well Done Leyton!
Austin has raised his game to an even higher standard. He is focused and determined to get an incredible 200m fly time by mid season. He has found a strength of character to chisel away at a formula that will get him what he wants to achieve. Austin, good goal setting, strong commitment and steady improvement - sorted!
Beaux is a steady worker in her lane, she has put in some good strong sessions and keeps focused. She has shown good team spirit and helped out by swimming with the bronze squad to motivate them. Keep up the good work and concentrate your training towards an achievable goal…You just don’t know how good you are Beaux.
We are pleased to be invited to attend the Luton Spring Long Course Open meet. It is being held on the 16th/17th April which is Easter weekend and therefore there will be no training at this time. It is being held in a 50m pool so a great chance to aim for a regional time or a long course PB. The links below are for the schedules, qualifying times and entry forms and age is as at 31/12/2016.
Cost is £7 per event and payment to be paid in either cash or cheque made payable to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club along with your entry form by the 27th February 2017.
Entry forms and payments to be passed to your coach, myself or Amanda.
Entry forms must be completed in full with an ASA number and a qualifying entry time.
An event well worth entering in an excellent facility
Any questions or problems please ask.
Please see the message from Terry Bream below about the rearrangements for the County Champs. Please read CAREFULLY. If you have any queries do let us know. I will be asking for volunteers to help out again on the two weekends when I have the time slots.
‘My apologies for not being able to give you information yesterday, I was still waiting to speak to Roger Jones to confirm the position regarding repairs and available dates.
I am now in possession of all information which I will set out below for you:
· The repairs to the boom are currently being carried out with an estimated finish date of Wednesday evening, with further testing to be carried out on Thursday. I am going over to the pool to run a course on Thursday evening so will have the chance to check that it has happened.
· The weekend of 11th 12th February will go ahead with the planned programme.
· The distance events will be as planned on 18th February.
· The re-scheduled weekend will be on 25th/26th February.
The Wilkinson Sword gala which was to be on 25th February will have to be rescheduled.
