Would any swimmers like to take part in the Rotary Club’s Swimathon taking place this Saturday (18th Oct) at Hartsdown? The Rotary Club is able to take a couple of more teams. You need a team of 6 swimmers. The team takes turns to swim for a session of 55 minutes. Available slots are on Saturday afternoon. You will need to get some sponsors in advance. Appreciate its very short notice! Your sponsorship money will go 50% to Rotary Club Sponsored Charities (Oasis Domestic Abuse, Scoliosis, Eradication of Polio, Margate Millenium Fund) and 50% to the Swim Club. There is a trophy for the team that swims the most lengths in the 55 minutes. If you would like to take part please email TSC_secretary@btinternet.com in advance for forms and further information.

After a frantic race to make the Arena League gala in Woking, the team (chosen from Seahawks and Dolphins) performed exceptionally to outpoint Portsmouth Northsea and win the gala.
The atmosphere was electric all night and every swimmer gave 100% for the team. With headbands, war paint and tattoo’s the team looked the great!
Well done to everyone and roll on Round 2 on the 8th November.
We have uploaded the Christmas Fun event entry form to the website.
We hope as many of the swimmers and parents can make the event, as there will be some fun and games.
Following the release of the Competition Review, British Swimming recognises that counties may have forged ahead with their own arrangements for 2015 but would wish where possible for counties to put in place some of the proposals of the Competition Review. To this end, for 2015 KCASA has introduced 100m events for 10 year old girls, 10 and 11 year old boys. For these 100m events this will be a combined age group 10/11 years for awards. Age still remains as at 8 March 2015.
Dates for the County’s 2015 swimming championships are:-
15 February 2015 at Crystal Palace 1500/800
21/22 February 2015 at Medway Park, Gillingham
28 February/1 March 2015 at Medway Park, Gillingham
