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 ! "

Gemma

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!

Charlotte Mair

Charlotte is always motivated and puts in hard work with exerted effort.  Charlotte also motivates the lane with her impressive focus.  She has put in some really excellent, strong performances in training, especially in breaststroke.  Charlotte continues to improve her butterfly and I am sure it will end up being one of her strongest strokes.
