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.



"We were all very proud to see one of our very own KASC swimmers, Bob Apel, featuring high up in the Masters World Rankings for 2015.

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

 - Congratulations Bob ! "



Following his success at the regional swimming championships Austin's school (KSA) has written an article about him for their website.

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!

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.

Open Day

A great big thank you to EVERYONE who took part, helped out, made cakes, contributed tombola prizes etc etc for the open day last Sunday. It was a tremendous success, especially as we have never done anything like this before and we are already looking at planning next years’ event! Our swimmers were fantastic in everything they did and showed themselves to be wonderful ambassadors for our club.   (they loved the bouncy castles too!). Our coaches worked tirelessly to show why KASC is going from strength to strength and a big thankyou to our parents who worked non-stop and didn’t seem to mind giving up a Sunday to make the day a success! Luckily, the weather was kind too!

The parents of the non-members that I spoke to were really impressed with what our club can offer and their children loved the medals and certificates.

The water polo lads had an impressive stall with videos running and ran a mini-polo session and senior session later and hopefully they have gained some new members! Many thanks to Russel for organising the visit of the fire engine to add to the occasion.

There was a steady stream of buyers for the tableful of cakes that were donated and the tombola ‘machine’ worked non-stop throughout the day with an impressive display of prizes from large to small with something for everyone.

We made £265 on the day and more importantly, there were a number of children on the day who are now keen to join our club.

I do have some cake boxes with names on that I will get back to their owners but I have a few others and a white tray that I’m not sure whose they are. If you let me know who, I can get them back to you.

Many thanks
