Jacqueline Farrow

Head Coach


Head Coach, Jacqueline Farrow left a career in the local council to pursue her passion for swim coaching.  Jacqueline is driven and dedicated to this sport, she is on a mission to produce great swimmers and was voted Kettering Sports Coach of the Year 2016. 

She was a club swimmer as a child then returned to swimming as an adult and swam at masters nationals and also got her county colours for representing Northamptonshire. Her husband also coaches and she has two children who swim and for KASC.

Outside of swimming she was a dancer for 25 years. She has also produced England players from her rounders team where she has been a committee member, player, captain and coach in the local league for 35 years.

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!
