Please click here for the latest Trainability Squad update, including information relating to our October Technique Camp.

 

Level 1 Teaching Course
KSC are running a pilot programme to get our swimmers qualified in the field of swim teaching and hopefully coaching as well. Unfortunately we cannot host the teaching course in Tralee as we don't have access to enough swimming classes to fulfil the criteria for the course. It will take place in Fermoy.
Information on dates and times here.

Well done to all our swimmers who did themselves and the club proud at Ireland's Number 1 gala.

A big thank you to Ger who gave up so much time to get our swimmers in such good shape.

Thanks to all parents who did duty for the club during the gala. Without your help our swimmers could not compete.
