County Qualifier update

Having received fantastic support for the clubs Xmas County Qualifier gala on the 20th December, we are unfortunately going to have to implement our conditions and reject some entries.

We have received nearly 1,400 entries which would normally mean a very full two day meet.

With the key criteria being an opportunity to qualify for County championships, we will be assessing swimmers based on the Kent county qualifying times, with those furthest away being considered for rejection.

To enable swimmers the opportunity to enter Icebreaker, we will be publishing the acceptances and rejections tomorrow.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding

Guildford City Open

A huge weekend of first class swimming has just finished.

The club had a team of 28 swimmers competing against some of the best teams across the South of the country.

Putting in some fantastic swims, with nearly everyone swimming pb’s, the team broke club and SER records.

A massive thank you to Guildford swimming club for hosting a great meet.

East Invicta training camp

Please note, if you have qualified for the East Invicta training camp, entry forms need to be returned by Friday.

Entry details can be found on the East Invicta website

Competition time

With the club having such a great year in the team competitions, we are looking at revamping the clubs chants.

As such, we are running a competition open to swimmers to come up with a new “THANET” chant that could be used by the club in team competitions such as Arena League and Kent Junior League.

The winner will be chosen by the club captains and will receive a prize for their efforts.

Please get your entries to the club captains (Katie Latham or Kyri Papa-Adams) by 1st December, so we can practice in advance of the next Arena League gala.

Club events update

We are pleased to be hosting two events for swimmers over the next few months.

Please see “club events” page for further details.

Kent Junior League

Oh what a night!

After a sensational team performance, Seahawks powered to victory, taking the title of Champions for the first time in our history.

Meanwhile at Dover, the Dolphins, not to be outdone, proved that team ethic produces results, coming out on top of their gala.

A fantastic evening for the club!

Well done to all the swimmers, coaches and supporters
