The next Kings Swim Club Committee Meeting will be held on Friday 10 November at Narre Warren from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.

All welcome.

Minutes from previous meeting can be found here.

Long Course Competition Calendar available here!

Swimmers should discuss entries with their coach before entering.

This year Swimming Victoria will be holding the Victorian Sprint Championships in November instead of February, and introducing a new Victorian Relay Competition in February. It will be great fun to have some Kings relay teams at the relay comp – just waiting for more information to be uploaded online to get an idea of how it will be run.

Due to the limited opportunities our swimmers now have to qualify for Sprint Champs and Age Champs, you will notice the calendar is quite busy. This is to ensure I give all of our swimmers the best chance of achieving their personal goals for the season.

With the AIS camp in October, and limited amount of time to qualify for championship competitions over the next few months, I am planning to include an away competition in 2018, instead of before Age Champs as we have previously done.

Happy racing to all Kings swimmers!

HOW TO ENTER MEETS
The preferred method of entry for most meets is via online entry through the Swimming Victoria website.
1. Go to the Swimming Victoria event calendar http://www.vic.swimming.org.au/calendar.html
2. Find the event name listed above (may be slightly different)
3. Print off EVENT FLYER circle the events you would like to do and bring to training to discuss with your coach.
4. Enter the event by clicking ONLINE ENTRIES, and follow the prompts. Comps often close early due to reaching capacity, so please register early to avoid missing out.

It is unfortunate that we must once again announce that we are losing one of our swim club coaches. Joshua Lorimer advised the club on Monday that he would not be continuing as a coach and will be finishing up with us on Friday 13th October 2017.

Josh has come to the realisation that his passion is more as a swim teacher rather than a coach and as such he will be stepping back from club and spending more time in the Kingswim learn to swim program and on his studies.

Whilst we are disappointed, we respect Josh’s decision and thank him for all of the time and effort he has put into club over the past two years and we wish him well in his future endeavours.

Josh you have been an amazing influence on our swimmers, you have helped them grow as athletes and in their overall level of confidence in their strokes. You have been an outstanding coach and you will be very sadly missed out on pool deck at Narre Warren.
