Please note that for those who have not been selected, Coach Sathit feels they require a little further training before attending an event of this standard but we will look to include your child in future events.

isb swimfest entries by name (inlcuding Relay)

If you look at the tentative schedule (released by ISB) below you will notice Saturday is split in half with the 8&Unders and 9-10 Year olds competing in the morning and 11-12, 13-14 and 15&Over swimming in the afternoon. Please note that closer to the event we will receive students Heats and Lane numbers from ISB and we will share this with you.

Tentative Schedule

New Swim Parents:

ISB Swimfest is one of the biggest International School swim event in Bangkok with a 1,000 students competition from schools in AISAA, BISAC, TISAC as well as Swim academies around Thailand. KIS has attended the last 4 years and while we are not able to compete with the squad sizes of some of the bigger schools we have made huge improvements each year with our points doubling nearly every year and climbing the leader board each year.

Due to the mass number of students competing at the competition, each event will have multiple heats due to ISB’s swimming pool having 10 lanes. For example last years, most events had over 50 students competing per event, which would mean there were at least 5 heats per event. I would highly recommend that your child brings a book to read or maybe cards play with, so they have something to do while they wait for their events.

Traveling option:

With the traveling to and from ISB, KIS will provide transportation to and from ISB. The bus will leave KIS car park at 5:30am and return back to KIS at approx. 6pm on Saturday. Sunday the bus will leave KIS at 6:00am and will return at approx. 2:00 pm on Sunday. If you would like to bring your child to the event yourself, you must ensure you met the team near the pool 15 minutes before our warm up time. We would highly recommend you aim to come 30 minutes before as traffic leading to ISB is likely to be bad with so many students attending. Please note it is MANDATORY for your child to participate in the warm-up. The meeting point will be in the ISB gymnasium located next to the pool.

Please click here to indicate if your child will be attending and if they will take the KIS Bus to ISB and/or back to KIS. Additionally ISB usual give out either a free T-Shirt or towel. In case they are giving out shirts, please indicate your child’s shirt size on the link as well so we can collect this on your behave. Please use your child’s EDU account to edit the file by Monday 4th November.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (sam@edu.kis.ac.th) at any time.
