How to join Kettering Amateur Swimming
Please use the "Contact Us" form to
arrange an assessment
Assessments are carried out once a month,
normally on Saturday mornings, at Kettering Swimming Pool.
Children will need to have reached a minimum of
Stage 5 of the ASA’s Learn To Swim Pathway in order to join
the club; or be of the standard required to pass this stage.
At the assessment morning parents/guardians will
be asked to fill in a ‘New Assessment Form’ with basic
information about their child and contact details.
Children will then be assessed using the
objectives set out for Stage 5 to ensure that they are of this
level. The objectives for the proceeding Stages (6-10) will then be
used to place children into the appropriate group.
If swimmers meet the objectives for Stage 10
then they will be offered a place in our first Junior squad
The assessor will then complete the ‘New
Assessment Form’ form by filling in the relevant information
regarding the assessment outcomes. This will be passed on to the
club’s Membership Secretary.
Parents/guardians and swimmers will be informed
of which group the assessor believes to be appropriate and given a
membership pack and a welcome pack. The membership pack contains
the information about how to join the Club and the welcome pack
contains some introductory information about the club.
Swimmers will then have access to 3 free
sessions with the club before they make a decision about joining.
Online Registration must be completed by the end of the 3 free
sessions in order for swimmers to continue training with the club.
New swimmers cannot continue to swim after their 3 free sessions
have been used if they have not completed the Online Registration
as they are not insured to swim with the club.
All new swimmers will have their attendance
recorded so that the club can track when each swimmer has used
their 3 free sessions. If the online Registration has not been
completed by this time then the club will contact parents/guardians
to inform them that this point has been reached and that their
swimmer cannot attend their next session until the Registration has
Once online registration has been completed, it
will be processed and approved. Swimmers are then members of KASC
and can continue training with their new squad.
Please note that each squad has a maximum number
of swimmers and if this has been reached at the time of assessment
then new swimmers will be put on a waiting list. When a space
becomes available swimmers will be contacted to begin their 3 free
