An A and a B team is selected, which compete against the Independent Schools on a Friday afternoon during the first and fourth terms. The team training is conducted by five members of staff who train and teach the boys during Phys Ed lessons and between 13:45 and 15:00 three days a week. Teams are chosen on trial times, but swimmers may be changed from A to B and vice versa, week by week. All Friday galas are swum in relay format, giving four boys per age group – Under 8/9 to Open – a chance to swim each stroke. There is also a Junior and Senior Individual Medley.
Swimming at K.E.P.S. is constantly improving and participation has increased tremendously since the start of the year. Our boys have really enjoyed the extra pool time that the Integrated Sports Day has brought about which showed in their successful participation in the various galas that took place.
