Seahorses ATS & Swim Team
Peponi House Preparatory School have launched a unique Advanced Swim Training Scheme (ATS), the only one of its kind in the Country. The Seahorses ATS is not only available to Peponi House pupils; we have opened the door to anyone who wishes to join the training scheme.
Members of the Seahorses ATS can practise with our scheme and compete for us at NASA and KSF competitions.
Swimmers are welcome to join the Seahorses ATS from around the Nairobi area after displaying talent or potential talent within swimming. Seahorses ATS will guide swimmers through a Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTAD) with a vision to competing at IAPS, NASA, KSF and eventually INTERNATIONAL levels of competition.
Those who want to join, they must come for an assesment and if they are at the appropriate level they will be invited to a time trial (held every six weeks) to ensure that their practise abilities are suitable for a placement on the programme. After a meeting with the Director of Swimming and the appropriate Squad Coach, a decision will be made as to the suitability of the swimmer in question. Swimmers will be required to make themselves members of the Seahorses ATS by paying the appropriate ‘Annual Joining Fee’ and the first ‘Termly Training Fee’ on invitation to join.
Becoming a member of the Seahorses ATS allows members to train within the Seahorses programme. A termly training fee will be charged, no matter how many training sessions were attended in that particular term. This training fee does not include Peponi School holidays.
