CLUB RECORDS (NEW)


News. Harry Rennolls is swimming the 100m free for Kent in the (National) Inter-County Championships in Ponds Forge, Sheffield, on 19th October 2014. He is in the Intermediate Age Group (those in school years 10 & 11), but being a young 14YO he could find himself racing the country's best young 16YO's. Harry is also taking part in the Medley and Freestyle relays, and the final 6x50m Mixed (Age & Gendre) relay. Good Luck Harry, just do your best.

The event is probably the liveliest Jamboree of British Swimming throughout the year. Many of the Swimmers wear war-paint, and there is much chanting!  But this will not stop Lancashire winning for the 10th year in a row. Harry swam the 100free &100back last year, and Kent's 4th pace in Div. 1. was the best result ever. A day trip is possible, and the entry fee is low, <£5 (ICC13). Things kick off at noon, and are all over by 3.00pm.

 

News. Hurstmere School entered both Junior and Intermediate Boys teams into the London Division Heats of the ESSA National Schools Swimming Relay Championships, on Monday 29th Sept. 2014. The Junior team included Harvy Bridge and Ben Luxford , while the Intermediate team included Tom Bridge and Alex Walsh (Bexley SC) +2.

St. Olave's also had an Intermediate team including Harry Rennolls.

All the WOSC swimmers swam brilliantly, but Whitgift (a Swimming Specialist School) had National Champions in their teams, and won both relays.

GOOD NEWS: KENT ASA COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS 2015

The Technical Committee of the ASA has failed to reach conclusions on the Nationwide Implementation of a New Competition Structure.

Hence Kent will be running their 2015 County championships as they were in 2014, with two important exceptions.  DETAILS

1. Qualifying times must have been obtained since 16th Feb. 2014. This means that times gained in the 2014 Kents CAN be used as QTs for the 2015 Kents. MaleQTs FemaleQTS

2. All events will be "Integrated": i.e. the seeded age-group and Open events will be combined. Swimmers will notice no difference, unless they previously swam in both. The resting time between events will be longer!

Note: 9, 10 & 11 year olds are still eligible!

About WOSC

White Oak Swimming Club was founded in 1967. It is a very friendly and relaxed club, with convenient training times, and caters for swimmers of all ages and abilities. We have a well-qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic coaching team and train at White Oak Leisure Centre, Hilda May Avenue, Swanley, Kent, BR8 7BT. We have several squads to suit swimmers needs and abilities and we compete in all levels up to National.

Club nights are every Wednesday evening. This is where Committee members and helpers are on hand to meet parents and answer any questions. There is also a club shop every Wednesday selling swimming hats, T bags and other items.

We run the ASA Badge Scheme for developing swimmers where badges can be achieved for swimming distances in certain times . We have four Club Championships each year, monthly time trials,   have many League matches, and attend many Open Meets.
