Kingfishers Swimming Club – Championship Review
SADSA Gala – Kingfisher Entries – Sunday 25th Nov @ Scarborough Pool
Swimmers please check your race entries:
Parents & Swimmers Please Note.
Swimmers please do not attempt to access the pool if you are any more than 10 minutes late for your session. This rule is to prevent injuries as you are much more likely to be injured if you miss warm up. Each session has a 15 minute warm up incorporated into all sets by the teachers & coaches.
How important is warming up before swimming?
With swimming using large groups of muscles it is essential that you use efficient movements and maintain a low heart rate so as not to fatigue the body. … Warming up increases body temperature, which reduces the chance for muscle and tendon injuries.
How long should swimming warm up last?
At bare minimum, your warm-up period should be five minutes long. If you are practicing an intricate sport like gymnastics or ballet, you need much longer than five minutes to properly warm up. Also, when your muscles are extremely sore from a previous workout, you will need to take more time to warm up.
Please respect this rule as it is there to reduce your risk of injury.
Thank You for respecting this rule………. Safe & Happy Swimming !!
Please note there will be no swimming training on Sunday 18th or 25th November due to Club Championships and SADSA annual gala.
Good luck to all those competing ……

Kingfishers Swimming club will be 40 years old in 2019, a registered charity solely run by a volunteer workforce of over 35 regular staff members, accredited to Swim England and with Swim Mark accreditation.
We are requesting financial support to help Kingfishers provide more aquatic opportunities to members both children and adults in the Scarborough area. Being a coastal town with the sea on our doorstep making sure that as many local children are good strong swimmers is vitally important. We would very much like to grow our membership, upskill our volunteer teaching and coaching team and provide events and equipment to maximise the potential they have. We are a fully inclusive club working with beginners, regional medallists, open water swimmers and triathletes competing at a national level alongside kids with hidden disabilities and adults who are returning to swimming to improve their fitness levels.
