Thanks to the hard work of Chris Aust and Sarah Kearney from the sports centre we are delighted to announce we now have 4 new starting blocks that are customised to suit FINA specifications. These are a huge improvement on the blocks that the club has been using since before I was born...! They come at a hefty price, but are long overdue. In addition we have new lanes ropes and clocks, so we're all set for the new season.
Congratulations to our University Leavers
Congratulations to our senior swimmers who took their A-levels recently.
Our captains Zak, Caitlin and Chelsea all achieved straight A’s!
Chelsea is off to study Medicine at UEA, Caitlin Sport at Birmingham and Jess a PE degree at Chichester. Zak will be taking a year out before embarking on an Economics degree.
We will be sad to see Caitlin, Chelsea and Jess go, but wish them every success and hope that they will be back training with us in the holidays.
With their departures in mind news will follow in due course regarding new club captains.
Congratulations to our trio of South East England Regional qualifiers who will be flying the KGSC flag over the coming weekends..
Qualifying in itself is a real achievement and we wish them all the best.
Who will be the next junior boy to qualify?

Congratulations to Chelsea who came 3rd in the 200 Breaststroke (2:44:90 converted to SC) at Wycombe in the SER Championships in the 17&Over age group.
Chelsea went into the final in 5th place, but sliced another 2 seconds off, collecting a bronze medal and fine PB - a fantastic achievement and hopefully an inspiration to the other KGSC swimmers.
Chelsea also came 11th in the 100 Breast (1.17.60) and 14th in the 50 Breast (35.00 converted to SC).
WELL DONE CHELSEA.
