Surrey County Championships -2nd Weekend

Guildford Spectrum played host to week two of the Surreys where KRSC swimmers competed in the 100m breaststroke and 200m freestyle events. At the end of the weekend, the club remained in second place (out of twenty five) and two golds, three silvers and two bronzes were added to the medal tally. An additional nine finalist (top eight) places were achieved. Our swimmers overall swam really well with 41 personal bests achived from a possible 47.  Yasmine Hamerlaine, 10 and Lily Anderson, 14 were the gold medal winners for the second week in a row, both taking the top spot in the 200m freestyle. Details of all medal winners are below. Next weekend, 15/16 March and 22 March sees further visits to The Spectrum for the remainder of the 100m and 200m events while the 50m sprints and the relay events take place at Crystal Palace on 23 and 29 March respectively.

Surrey County Championships - 1st Weekend

Yasmine Hamerlaine, DSurrey Count Championships, 400 Freestyle

Kingston had a great start to the Surrey County Championships this weekend which were held at the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford. The focus was on the long distance events including the 1500m, 800m, 400m freestyle events and the  400m IM.  These are all hard races but we won a magnificent 14 medals; our highest total for a number of years. Well done in particualar to Yasmine Hamerlaine, Lily Anderson and Thomas Urry who all became Surrey Champions in their respective events.  We also had many great Top 8 finishes with a number of our swimmers agonisingly missing out on a medal place by hundredths of a second.  The full results are available on Meet Mobile, and should be published on the Surrey Swimming website in the next few days.  Well done to all those who competed, some for the first time.  Our medal winners are listed in the table below:

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2014

Please note that the KRSC AGM will be held on Sunday March 30th 2014 at 5.30pm at the New Malden centre. A number of current post-holders have indicated that they do not wish to stand for re-election and therefore we would like to give ample opportunity for interested candidates to consider a possible role. The roles that will definitely need to be filled are:

Important Information re Open Meets

All, As we continue the positive strides the club has taken over the last 6 months we have been looking at improved ways of running every aspect of the club.  To this end we hope to improve the usability of the website in relation to Open Meet Entries. Please note, in order to avoid cluttering the Noticeboard with details of Open Meets, they have now been relocated to the right of the Noticeboard.  Information pertaining to all New Meets will now be located here. Please be aware there will be only two listings that show automatically, and therefore it is important to scroll through any additional pages to make yourselves aware of any further meets that may be open for entry.   All meets will still be available via the Galas | Calendar Listing tab and the newly listed Open Meets tab.

As first come first served meets are becoming harder and harder to get into, please be aware that No Late Entries will be Accepted (even if they arrive a day late in the post or are e-mailed to me without a supporting cheque) as any delay in the submission of entries by the club leads to rejected entries.  This simply is not fair to those swimmers who submit their entries in good time.  Thank you for your co-operation.

Welfare Officer Vacancy

Calling all would be volunteers! We are currently in urgent need of a club welfare officer. This extremely important role sits outside the club's Executive and the key responsibility is to be the first point of contact for any issues concerning child welfare. 

Aquae Sulis Open Meet Results

Fourteen of our swimmers headed west over the weekend to compete in the Aqua Sulis Level 1 Open Meet in Bristol. The pool complex is less than a year old and the facilities were excellent.   The standard of swimming was very high with many swimmers from the University of Bath and at least one Olympian taking part.  They competed in 59 events, winning three silvers, two bronzes and achieving 29 personal bests.  Our medal winners were (Silver: Finn Harman; Izzy Hyatt and Caitlin Thomson), (Bronze: Kate Boden and Izzy Hyatt). 

Surrey Age Group Championships 2014 - IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

Surrey have now produced their list of Accepted Entries for the Surrey Championships 2014 entitled Entry Report - KIRL.  Please can everyone check their child's entries and get back to Sally-Anne Hawley asap with any errors or omissions by Wednesday,  13th February.   The Club cannot be held responsible for any errors which result in a child being unable to swim on the day as the onus is on parents to ensure all their child's details are correct prior to the Championships taking place.

Oh what a night! Record numbers of Surrey Swimmers

Friday 31st January was the club's inaugural "Last Chance Gala" at The Malden Centre. It was a fantastic, if frantic, occasion with twelve swimmers getting their first Surrey times while many, many others managed to qualify for new events. And by the end of the evening KRSC had a grand total of 75 swimmers qualifying for 519 individual events at this year's Surrey County Championships. An incredible achievement and a record for the club. Among our qualifiers are eight swimmers who have qualified for all events in their age groups: Louis Davies, 9 (performance juniors), Mikayla McCall 9, (performance juniors), Jude Boden, 11 (performance nationals), Ollie Jeffery, 12 (performance nationals), Tegan Lessey, 12 (performance nationals), Lucy Hawley, 13 (performance nationals), Dylan Conway, 13 (senior performance) and Issei Kuzuki, 13 (senior performance). As well as all the swimmers, congratulations must go to all our coaches who have worked so hard to get our swimmers to this point. And finally, a massive thank you to those who helped out on the evening, in particular Ross Thomson who put the whole thing together. 

Staines County Qualifier Meet - Results

Land Training Notice

Swimmers in the National Competitive, National Performance and Senior Performance squads are requested to bring a foam roller for use in land training sessions. This piece of equipment can be purchased from places like Argos or online at Amazon for as little as £10. They come in various sizes, but the small one (around 30cm long) would perhaps be most appropriate for ease of transportation to sessions and storage at home. You are also reminded that you are exp
