Have a great holiday everyone.
We are pleased to announce that when we return to teaching after Easter Swim Certificates and Badges will be available to purchase after each assessment.
The Learn to Swim Awards 1-7 are divided into progressive stages. They make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children.
They are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.
Each of the Learn to Swim Awards 1-7 stages has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each award.
Speak to your teacher for more information..
We have been able to obtain more training time in a 25m pool at Whittlesey to enhance your training structure at Kingfishers. This is a fantastic opportunity for us and I am sure that it will lead to even more Regional times next year as we grow in strength and train hard during 2017/2018. On a Tuesday, the Regional Squad will now train over at Whittlesey Manor and the County and Development squad will train at Chatteris. During the year we will swap a few sessions to furt...her enhance the county squads training too.
As from Tuesday 18th April training at kingfishers will change to the following structure.:-
Tuesday nights only
Chatteris Empress Pool -
5.30pm to 6.30pm - Developments (formerly Juniors)
6.30pm to 8pm - County Squad
Whittlesey Manor Pool
7.00pm to 8.30pm - Reqional Squad
(Landtraining to be organised)
I will update further on the landtraining this week. Please can you ensure that you are on time to training and bring full kit plus drinks.

They faced tough competition from Peterborough and Cambridge especially. Hallie White (13) and Thomas Hanley (13) qualified for five events each and both swam well.

Freddie Allen had to swim in the 12 year age group, despite only being 11, so did very well to get into the finals of the 50m and 100m front crawl and finish in 5th place and gaining 6th spot in 200m backstroke. Mia Tandon (10), Thea Hanley (10), Molly Noble (12) all qualified for the 50m front crawl, with Molly also competing in 100m I.M.
