Dear Swim Parents,
Please be informed we have successfully entered the Prep Puppy Cup scheduled for Saturday 7th December at Prep’s Primary Campus on Sukhumvit Soi 53. The day will be split into two sessions, session 1 running from 8:00am to 11:00am for 6&Under and 7-8 Years. Session 2 will run from 11:30am – 2:00pm for 9-10 Years. KIS will be taking a squad specific team of 35 students. The following event will be hugely beneficially to selected child’s swimming development as well as give them competition experience in the lead up to further competition. Please see selected students below:
|Song Long G2
|Miu Miu G5
KIS will be covering the entry fee for all students. While this is a development meet, Prep will be giving out ribbons to winners of each heat receiving a Heat Winner Ribbon and medals to Students who place 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each age group.
KIS will provide transportation to and from Prep for students and coaches only, leaving KIS car park at 7:10am and return back to KIS at approx. 3:00 pm on Saturday. However, if you’re planning to take your child there yourself, you should meet us in Prep’s Gym at 7:40am. Please email Coach Oh (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your child’s attendance, if they will take the Bus to Prep and/or back to KIS.
All swimmers should wear their coaching swimsuit (dark navy blue and green with KIS logo) underneath the KIS TEAM shirt. Students should bring with them a towel, KIS Swim Team cap (white), goggles, shower gel, sunscreen and a change of clothes.
Puppy Cup Ethos
This meet will be run at a pace that is conducive to the developing swimmer. If a swimmer requires time to be encouraged at the starting blocks then the race will wait. No pressure should be placed on any swimmer to swim any event they do not want to – but we will be patient in allowing a child to receive feedback from their coach prior to each race. One coach from each school is recommended at the poolside and block marshaling area. There is the ‘3 ask’ procedure in place for reluctant swimmers. There are no DQ’s (Disqualification) and false starts will be handled as comfortably as possible without affecting other swimmers. Please help to support the organizers, coaches, and if needed, your child’s decision at all times to enable the event to remain as relaxed and stress-free for all of our developing swimmers as possible.
