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.

A full weekend saw 15 swimmers of the Chatteris squad head for Cambridge Parkside Pools for the Cambridge Spring Open Meet. Star swimmers were Megan Donovan, Reece Rimpson, Tom Hanley, Jake Hoy and Harry Rayner. Coach Sadie Richardson was very pleased with all her charges, as all swam at least one personal best time. Hanley (13) achieved regional times for his 50m front crawl, bronze medal too, and 100m breaststroke (both PB), as well as swimming PB’s for his 100m butterfly and 200m f/c, whilst Rimpson once again swam all his races in PB times, with silver for 50m breaststroke, bronze for 100m f/c, 50m butterfly and 100m breaststroke and fourth place for 50m backstroke. Hoy got bronze medals for 100m back and 200m breaststroke and silver for 50m breaststroke, but no PB’s this time. Rayner swam seven races with PB’s in all but one and a best position of seventh in 50m butterfly, whilst Donovan (10) swam eight, from 50m back to 200m I.M., and got PB’s in all but one, with a highest position of fourth in her 50m butterfly. Mia Tandon was pleased with her PB bronze in 200m f/c whilst regaining her club record.
