On Thursday, 27th January at 7pm we will hold time trials for 800m and 1500m freestyle at Hemel.  The main objective is to give swimmers the opportunity to gain experience of swimming these longer distances, although as an added bonus times can be used to qualify for County Championships.

Everyone is invited to participate whether or not you would normally train on a Thursday, but Alan expects everyone in Development Squad and above to swim one of these events; this regardless of whether you think of yourself as a sprint specialist.  Think of it as a light training session rather than a long race!

We will be using electronic timing, the scoreboard, lap counters and timekeepers will bring a whistle as well as their stopwatch to mark the start of the last 50m to make it will feel more like a competition than a time trial.  However there will be no entry fee, spectator fee or awards.

Entries are required by Sunday 23rd January and may be submitted by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  

To balance the heats please submit an entry time.  For almost everyone this will involve calculating a time based on shorter events so please use the Club guidelines on estimating entry times as your starting point.  However on this occasion additional flexibility will be allowed if for example it is necessary to use a 200m free time as the basis for any calculation.  If in doubt, ask your coach.
