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.
Mark Lee - Head Coach
I have been a swimming teacher & coach for the last 22 years. I was Head Coach at Kettering from 2004-2008 & returned in 2012 with aim of developing all the swimmers to their full potential & having a good community basis which attracts young swimmers into the club.
Claire Simms – Junior Head Coach
I am currently a qualified Level 2 Swimming Teacher and Level 1 Swimming Coach. I have been coaching with the club for about 12 years now. I took over the responsibility for the Junior section of the club in September 2012. I have been swimming with the club since the age of 8 and over the past year I have enjoyed resuming my training and competing with the club once more.
Claire is also a qualified sports massage therapist. Click here to view her website.
Leicester Penguins Open Meet - Oct
We are pleased to confirm that KASC have been invited to enter the Leicester Penguins Open meet on the 3rd and 4th October 2015.
This is a Level 3 open meet suitable for all with the meet being held at Braunstone pool.
There are upper qualifying times which means you cannot be faster than this time,
If you would like to enter please complete the entry form in full with a cheque made payable to
Kettering Amateur Swimming Club for £4.75 per event.
This needs to be given to a coach or myself by 20th July at the latest.
This event is usually oversubscribed so the earlier we have entries the more chance
we have of securing a place although this is not guaranteed.
Any queries or problems please ask myself or your coach.
