Congratulations to the 71 Hemel swimmers who participated in the first of our collaborative Club Championships with Watford SC and swam the 400 free.  Georgia Purkis broke her own age group Club record set just last weekend by a massive 5 seconds in an epic contest with Alice Fender which Alice just edged.  There were 42 personal best times and no fewer than 23 swimmers entered the event for the first time, gaining valuable experience at this distance.

Arena 2016 - round 2
Tuesday, 15 November 2016 17:50
The Arena team showed great tenacity and fight throughout the second round of the competition at Luton, coming fifth on the night with many close finishes.  Despite a number of absences they actually swam faster than in the previous round, posting the fourth fastest time ever by a Hemel team, suggesting that there's still more to come in the last round.  Alice Fender won the 100 free, there were 17 other second and third places, 11 individual PBs and three Club age group records by Heidi Gibbens in the 100 breast and Sam Gaines in the 100 arena 2016 rd 2 2

Sam was also part of the boys u16 relay team along with Ashley Coombs, Jonny Farrow, Cameron Clark (in the free) and Joe Coldwell (medley) which set new Club Arena records in both their relays, breaking records previously set in 2008.  Other Club Arena records were set by Ashley, Georgia Purkis and Jack Christie.

Swimmers of the month - October
Monday, 07 November 2016 09:47
Octobers swimmers of the month are Matthew Morley from Sealions 1 and Isabella O'Leary from Seals. Both swimmers have joined the club fairly recently and have really stood out as they have adapted to training very well. Matthew and Isabella have both put in a lot of effort and have picked up training techniques that they previously wouldn't have come across. Congratulations to both swimmers.

HHSC supports Children in Need
Thursday, 27 October 2016 15:49
HHSC are holding a sponsored swim to raise money for Children in Need on Sunday 20th November. Each swimmer will be asked to swim for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on which group they swim in, and their lengths will be counted. There will be no normal training on this night; each training group will be given an allocated time slot to come and do their swim. These times will be on the notice board together with a volunteer sheet to help count lengths!

children in need
We will also hold a bake sale on Tuesday 15th November, which we will need your cakes and biscuits for! These will need to be brought to the cafe for the start of training and we’re looking for some older swimmers to volunteer to help sell them.

2017 County Championships – qualification process
Thursday, 20 October 2016 10:47
Hemel Hempstead currently has over 60 swimmers with times within the consideration/ qualifying parameters for the different age groups at Hertfordshire County 2017 Championships next January/February. The qualifying times can be found here, and details of those swimmers who already have a consideration time can be found here (but please see below for what holding a consideration time means). The depth of swimmers within HHSC achieving consideration and/or qualifying times is great for the club in showing our strength.

The qualifying window for Counties is open until Wednesday 14th December, although we will be submitting entries a few days before then.  Hemel Hempstead’s last chance qualifying meet is the Team Luton Development meet on the 11th December, and our closing date for entries for this meet is Sunday 23rd October.  We expect swimmers to be attending to achieve necessary requirements ; this will be your last chance to advance your current times and to potentially secure any new opportunities for the 2017 Hertfordshire County Championships.
