Welcome to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club

We have a NEW WEBSITE!

Please follow this link.

 

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

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 - May 2018

Esther Tennant

Esther has recently increased her swimming sessions and has already got pbs. Esther is a great club swimmer who has lots of potential. I am sure with steady effort and focus on arm speed Esther will have a break through year ahead of her. Well done Esther, work hard on setting and achieving small stepping stone goals to reach your long term goals.

Nayan Gilboa-Way

Nayan has always been a consistent and dedicated swimmer. Over the last month there has been a new gear change and he has had some great times in galas, training and at dash night. Nayan still has a great depth of untapped potential and who knows what can be achieved by each month stretching that little bit further. Well done Nayan, keep knocking those seconds off.

Junior Swimmers of the Month - Feb March April 2018

FEB

This month’s first winner is Katie Pickford. Ever since joining the club last year Katie has had a fantastic attitude towards her training. She works hard at every session, she listens to her coaches and always tries her best at whatever she is asked to do. She has made great progress across her strokes and skills and has recently moved up to the next stage in the Academy. Katie is a great member of the KASC team as she is friendly and helpful to all her fellow swimmers. Congratulations Katie!

Our second winner is Cameron Bell. Since joining Development 2 Cameron has had a really positive attitude towards his training. Not only has he been training hard during our sprint sets but also focussing on his stroke technique. Cameron has been learning when to slow down and think about this technique and stroke count. He has also been working hard on his skills - especially his underwater butterfly kick. Hopefully all of his work will results in lots more PBs. Well done Cameron!

MAR

Our first winner this month is Euan Chatburn. Euan has been chosen to say a big well done for his positive attitude towards his swimming. He always works hard at training, tries his best and is keen to improve. Euan has recently competed in his first galas and he overcame his nerves to swim fantastically. He is a great team member to have on poolside as he cheers on his teammates and always has a smile on his face!

Our second winner this month is Lily Baish. Lily is progressing very well through the Academy stages due to her hard work and determination to learn and execute new skills. She listens to coaches and always puts in 100% effort to put coaching points into practice. Lily had a great club championships and the end of last year and swam brilliantly at this month’s Academy Gala and it’s great to see her eager to race and get quicker!

APR

The first recipient for April’s Swimmer of the Month award is Dylan Smith. Dylan is in our Academy and has recently progressed to Stage 9 due to his hard work and determination he shows in his training. Dylan recently competed in his first gala for the club and he was an absolute pleasure to have on poolside. He gave 100% in his races, cheered his teammates on in theirs and by all accounts thoroughly enjoyed himself!

Our second recipient of this month’s award is Alicia Evans. Alicia has recently progressed from our Sunday Academy stages to our Monday session and is doing very well. She listens to her coaches, tries her best and always works hard and this is reflected in how quickly she is completing the objectives. Alicia has also just competed in her first gala for the club where she achieved 2 excellent PBs!
