HHSC entries close on 20th October

The Hertfordshire County Development meet takes place on 21st November at The Venue, Borehamwood.  This gala is for 9, 10 and 11 year old swimmers who have not achieved qualifying times for the Hertfordshire County Championships in March 2010 and is an important stepping stone in a swimmer’s development.  This is a great opportunity for our swimmers to swim some 200 races and to get used to the Borehamwood pool where the County Championships are held.

There are no minimum times for this gala so if you can swim an event legally you can enter.  There are however No Faster Than entry times that reflect the qualification times for the County Champs. 

Alan and Charles have selected those swimmers who they would like to enter this meet.  Those swimmers who have received an email regarding this meet and have not swum faster than the time limits should be taking part in this competition.  If you haven't received an email and believe you should be swimming, please talk to Alan or Charles.

The entry form and other information can be downloaded from the Herts ASA website here.   Please download the information and read it carefully.

We want all swimmers to try and compete in 2 x 200m races and as many 50m races you are comfortable with.  The event runs over 2 sessions and you can compete in one 200m event per session.  Development and Junior squad should try 200IM and a 200 in your best stroke.  Otters and Seals at least one 200 of your choice.  If you do not enter at least one 200 your entry will be rejected.

Please return all forms by 20th October latest.

Cheques should be payable to Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club.  Please put entries in the white post box in SportSpace Hemel Hempstead by the notice board marked for the attention of Carryl Baughan. 

A few points worth noting:

  • Age – is at the end date of the County Championships in 2010 i.e. 21st March 2010
  • Event - If you have competed in the County Championships before then you cannot enter that event at the Development Meet but you can do other events that may not be your best stroke(s)
  • Entry Times - If your Personal Best time is faster than the No Faster Time then you cannot enter that event
  • No Times - If you do not have a time for an event please indicate this and your coaches will estimate a time so that you swim in the correct heat.
