Welcome to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club
Kettering Swimming Club is the premium competitive club within Kettering and the surrounding area's. We are a dynamic and exciting club with a long and proud history. Originally based at the Victoria Baths in Bath Lane Kettering, they moved to their 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.

Have been a swimming teacher & coach for the last 22 years.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.

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.

It is time for the County Championships that are to be held at Corby pool over 7/8th Feb, 21/22nd Feb and 1st March 2015.
There are many changes to the format and schedule this year which I have listed:

2. All events to have sub age groups and to be swum as separate events, eg 10/11-12 years, 13-15 years and 16+
3. Age groups are 10/11 years, 12 years, 13 years, 14 years, 15 years and 16+.
4. Age is at 31st December 2015 not age at time of gala
5. There will be NO BAGCATS. Medals will be awarded to all age groups for each event.
6. Entries are £5 per event
Attached are the schedule, qualifying times and entry forms which must be returned by the Sunday 11th January 2015 which leaves me (and Amanda) only 10 days to input everything on the computer entry system.
When completing your entry form it MUST HAVE:
A full name
A valid qualifying time for your age group
The correct entry number for your age group (please see the swimmer and key guide with the order of events)
The correct fee in cash or a cheque made payable to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club
ANY ENTRIES WITH MISSING INFORMATION WILL BE REJECTED BY THE COMPUTER SYSTEM
I appreciate this is fairly complicated, so any question/queries about this please email me or ask me poolside. Having said that, this is a great event to be part of and I do encourage all of you who have qualifying times in any events to enter,
If you have any questions about which event to enter or unsure about times please discuss this with your coach.
