Kingston Royals Swimming Club is delighted to be part of the Jack Petchey Foundation Achievements Award Scheme.
Only swimmers aged between 11 and 25 years are eligible to receive an award but recipients do not have to be the fastest or most talented swimmer. KRSC are currently able to make a maximum of 3 awards per calendar year. Each time an award is due to be made, the Head Coach will determine the quality which he feels should be recognised. He will then consult with the coaches of the training squads to produce a shortlist of swimmers they feel have displayed this quality. All swimmers will then be asked to vote for a swimmer from that shortlist using a ballot box. Voting will only be open for a limited time and notification of this will be posted on the noticeboard on the website. Once the voting period has closed, the swimmer with the most votes will be announced as the Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner.
Achievement Award Winners will be presented with a certificate and a pin badge in front of their peers and parents, and will be able to choose how the £250 Jack Petchey grant should be spent for KRSC. They will also be invited to a Regional Celebration Event where they will receive a medallion from the Jack Petchey Foundation.
