Weekly News (Sept 24-30)

Hello all Panthers,

I hope everyone had a restful activity free weekend! Now it is time to get back to work. This week is a peak work week for Sr. swimmers, so eat lots and sleep lots to be prepared.

Next week is our Palooza, so more opportunities to get some PBs and entry times for our newer swimmers.


Important Notes:


10 and under swimmers are looking good…and fast too!


It is very early in the season, but we have already had 6 age group records broke on our first time trials. Congratulations to the following swimmers:

Matt Somchote (25free), Ada Tieanworn (50 free, 50 fly, 100 IM), Gene Sunthornrangsri (50 br) and Pippin Kantakom (100 IM)


Gala Time trials coming up (October 2 & 3rd)

11 and over (senior will take place at 3:30pm on October 2)

10 and under (Jr. will take place at 2:30 on October 3rd)

Please try your best to have your swimmers take part in this event. It is important that we have a way to measure their improvement. This is the best way!

Sign up on the website this week or it is too late!


Panther Swim Team taking over Learn to Swim program starting in October (Super Jr. Panther Squads):

What does this means to ISB swimmers? It means that from now on, all swimmers from the very beginner levels will no longer have to go somewhere else to prepare themselves for the Panther Swim Team. Our Panther Swim Team coaches will run the program and work with the High School instructors as their assistants.

We will be accepting new “Super Jr. Panthers” after the October break, so you do not have to wait until January to join the swim team!

Sign up at the CAO or online at the old Learn to Swim link.


For those that missed the Panther Kick Off Gala:

You can get your team shirts and cap from Coach Day any day at the 50m pool. Also, team swim suits are available for sale anytime (1000Baht).
