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.

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!

Latest News

Senior Swimmers of the Month - March 2017

Max Jeffs

Max always works hard, he commits to his training and over the last few months has slowed down his arms to concentrate on technique.  This is a huge step in faith - resisting the temptation to go all out on arm speed/just spinning the wheels.  His distance per stroke this month is reaching further and his times are getting lower.  Very impressed with Max's pbs and performance at the galas, he just keeps improving and developing.   Well done Max

Harriet Casey

Harriet is a great trainer, enthusiastic and determined, all important attributes for a successful swimmer.  Harriet over the past few months has had some great pbs, especially in fly, and is steadily decreasing her times in all strokes. Harriet has been positive, focused and eager to learn, an inspiration to others in the lane.  Keep up the good work Harriet.

Diddy League Galas

Please find attached a summary of information about Diddy galas from Claire following on from the Diddy gala on the 1st April. We know there are lots of parents new to swimming competitions and there’s loads of useful information in the document so do have a good read through it and let us know if you have any questions.

As a club we also have to provide officials for any gala that we do. As we enter 2 teams in leagues that’s 2 lots of officials to provide. If you are interested in becoming a timekeeper or judge please let us know. The training is held at Kettering pool with Howard Wilkinson from Corby ASC and is free. For timekeeping it’s only two theory sessions and then a practical (after you have had a few practices sessions). We will run sessions on Mondays 6-7pm for those interested. I will get the next course started as soon as I have a couple of people wanting to do it. As an official you get in free to galas and you won’t have to fight for seats with the crowd!!

Best regards

Club sec
