Harry Rennolls has the 50Free QT (23.97<QT=24.30: Girls 50free QT=27.17 sec) for the Euro Jn Champs Trials.

A spreadsheet of current entrants.span> This has been sorted by time in 50m Free. Note Thomas Fannon, no 2 in 50free, was born in 98!
European Junior Championships..
Boys born 98/99/00/01: Girls born 99 / 00 / 01 / 02
(Just extended to include the youger swimmers... but do they have any chance?).  Boys 50Free EJC QT is 23.22 sec, better than the current British Junior record (15&U), 23.27 sec (Craig Mclean (2014).. who was born in 98!!!). Harry needs to set a new Br.Jn 50free LC record(<=23.22 sec) on Sat 18th march (at the Rushmore Royals L1 open) for it to be worth him entering the British Champs... no pressure!!!

How were KENTS16 for YOU? ... from KASA.

The individual championships are now complete.  I think you will all agree on one thing it was fundamentally different from any previous championships. Because it was so different we would really like your feedback, as clubs. Ideally a few different perspectives, yourselves, coaches, swimmers, parents officials and helpers. Please complete the survey here:
Thank you all for your support, its been a real team effort to make this all happen.

KENTS16. A report by Ian Enticknap.
The 2016 Kent championships promised to be both exciting and arduous at the same time.  Held over 4 successive weekends, the first three at Crystal Palace and the sprint weekend at the London Aquatic centre.  
White Oak SC were represented by 10 swimmers in total, several of whom were swimming in the Kents for the first time, which was bound to be nerveracking.
Many personal bests were achieved and there were many "near misses".  

Harry Rennolls (having won 6 golds+ in the previous 3 Kent Champs) missed most of these champs, because of a shoulder injury and a ski holiday. Though his Heat time 54.00 in 100m free, his sole event, was the fastest by a 16 year old in the Championships, (by 2.4 sec.), he faded in 16+ and Open Finals, against older swimmers. There were strong swims from Isla and  Evina Kasapidis:  Evina in the 11 and under girls 100 metres breaststroke and Isla in the  13 and under girls 50 metre freestyle.
Lucy Beckley swam well in the 100m backstroke with a new personal best.  
Alice Howe and Demi Farrow both competed in the girls Breaststroke.  Alice in the 50 metres and Demi in the 50, 100 and 200 metres.  
There was a very good personal best for Ben Luxford in the boys 50 metre freestyle and another very good personal best from Nathan Wesley in the 50 metre backstroke.  
Madeline Wesley was excellent in the 15 year old Girls 50 metre breaststroke with a massive best time in the heat, qualifying 4th for the final. Not quite as quick in the final but by far the best two swims of her life for that event. Fantastic.   
Noah Enticknap qualified for all 14 events in the Boys 11 and under age-group: 4 strokes at 50m, 100m and 200m plus the 400m freestyle, and 200m IM.  Some big PBs were achieved and came away with a fifth, 2 fourths, 6 bronzes and 5 silvers.
WOSC were well represented this year, but we need more swimmers to enter Open meets to gain qualifying times. Next year,” IT COULD BE YOU”!
