Dear Swim Coaching Parents and Students,
Welcome back and I hope you had a great break and Happy New Year! Swim coaching is well underway and I would like to remind Primary Parents that Morning swim training has started already! It is important our swimmer get back into the routine of morning training as we have two swim competitions coming up in the next 5 weeks! For Secondary, please note later this week I will be sharing a survey for students to re-select their training days after the changes to Season 2 Training. Please remind your child to look out for it and complete the survey.
ANS Sprint Challenge 2020:
A quick reminder that we will be entering the ANS (Amnuay Silpa) Sprint Challenge on Saturday 15th February. We will be given a warm-up time sometime between 6:30-7:30am (will be confirmed closer to the date) with the event starting promptly at 7:40am and concluding at 5pm. Please note we have decided to enter our entire Swim Team will all students, including G1-U Development, competing. We are currently finalizing our entry and will share the events list with you next week.
In the meantime, we ask that you please confirm your attendance and transportation option by emailing Coach Oh (firstname.lastname@example.org). KIS will be providing a bus to and from ANS with the morning Bus departing from KIS at 6am and the afternoon bus arriving at KIS by 6pm. If your child does not take the school bus they should meet us at ANS Gym by 6:40am. Please email Coach Oh by 17th January.
Please be reminded this meet is all 4 strokes with 25m for 6&Under and 7-8 and 50m for 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15&Over. There will also be Medley and Freestyle Relays. The last two years KIS has placed 5th and we are confident we can improve on this with the possibility of a top 3 finish this year if our whole squad attends!
Primary Friendly Meet:
We have organized for a Friendly Meet here at KIS on Wednesday 22nd January where all our students will have a chance to swim, including our G1-U Development Swimmers! The Meet will be all 25m races with Medley and Freestyle relays. Warm-up will start at 7:45am with the Meet starting at 8:20am. We have invited Shrewsbury City Campus and Regents Bangkok. Please see students events below.
G5 Parents, please note that morning there is going to be an important Coffee Meeting with regards to G5 Exhibition. While I know some of you will be keen to see your child swim may I please ask that you attend the Coffee Meeting first and you will be able to see the second half of the Meet after. This Meet is a friendly and there will be no medals.
