A central aim of the swim club team is to give children in Kenmare and the surrounding area the opportunity to swim competitively. Coaches constantly monitor each swimmer's development, ensuring they are moved to the squad appropriate to their skills.
Children who progress well through the lessons provided at the pool are eligible to put their name forward to join the club if they commit to the 30-week training programme. The club focuses on improving technique in the younger squads and on enhancing competitive turns, times, etc. in the older squads. All swim club members must be interested in competing in the long term, once they meet the criteria. There is a huge demand for places in the club among children keen to compete and swim for the Kenmare Bay Swim Team.
COMPETITIVE SWIMMING GALAS
Any Shark or Dolphin swimmers interested in competing in galas must inform Laura by October 14th each year, so that swimmers can be registered as competitors with Swim Ireland.
About 5 or 6 swimmers can be entered until the summer. Swimmers pay a fee of €12 (approx.) to enter each gala. This allows the swimmer to enter as many races as they wish on the day. Please pay the fee to the health club before the gala.
Each swimmer must compete in the 100m freestyle and 100m IM as a minimum requirement.*
