2016 AGM
Written by Andrew Farrow   
Wednesday, 13 July 2016 09:21
The Club's 2016 AGM was held on Monday, 11th July.  The minutes of the meeting together with the reports of the Chair and Acting Head Coach may be found here, whilst the Treasurer's report is available on application to the Treasurer.  The year had been dominated by the search for a new Head Coach but an appointment was about to be announced.  Despite this the swimming had been very successful with the best ever performance in Arena League, the most ever Regional Championship qualifying times, and almost 25% of the Club's age group records broken; some having stood for many years.  This could only have been achieved through the significant commitment of the swimmers, coaches and parents in a time of considerable uncertainty. The Club's financial position was reviewed and changes to the fee structure from September 2016 will be communicated to members.

The second weekend of our 2016 Club Championships saw another 143 PBs or first time swims out of 289 swims, with 34 consideration times and 12 qualifying times for next year's Herts County Championships set or imrpoved.  Three new age group records were set with Mila Brooke ( 7 yr old 25 free) breaking a record which had stood since 2007, Sam Gaines (14 yr old 50 breast) breaking a record set in 2009, and Alice Fender smashing the 15 yr old girls 100 IM record by more than a second.  The evening ended with a thrilling girls medley skins competition which for the first time included a junior competition for under 13's as well as the senior competition.  The senior event was won by Alice Fender who beat off strong challenges from Eleanor Bevan, Keelin McKenna, Shona McKenna, Georgia Purkis and Rebecca Sewell, whilst the junior event was won by the youngest qualifier, Holly Robinson, who saw off challenges from Tilly Beckwith, Freya Beresford, Lois Goad, Millie Herbert and Emily Young; well done to everyone who took part!

Round 1 of the Milton Keynes junior league saw us travel to Oxford. Having been promoted to division 1 and with a tough task ahead the team were in great spirits. Special mention has to go to the boys 9 yr olds ( Joseph Kelly, Fenner Balch, George Ball and Jackson Mills) who all swam up into the 10yrs and did themselves proud.  Out of 33 individual races, 21 PB's were achieved and we swam a brilliant squadron coming 3rd.  6th place on the night didn't reflect the team's overall performance.  Swimmers of the gala went to brother and sister Joseph and Elizabeth Kelly. mk league may 2016 
 
European Masters

Sixteen swimmers from Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club represented their club and country at the recent European Masters Swimming Championships 2016. The competition was held in the last week of May on the back of the Elite European Championships and took place at the iconic London Aquatics Centre, home of Olympics 2012. With a raft of personal best times, eight club and three East Region records broken, and with Mike Foskett and Annette Thatcher top of the European rankings for those born in 1952 for their individual events, the championships were a big success for HHSC, not to mention an unforgettable experience. img-20160602-wa0000

Hemel's 2016 Spring Development Meet
Written by Andrew Farrow   
Tuesday, 24 May 2016 12:59
Hemel swimmers had an outstanding weekend at the Club's annual Spring Development Meet alonsgide swimmers from Berkhamsted, Bishops Stortford, Bushey, Chesham, Milton Keynes, St Albans, Harpenden, Hertsmere, Hoddesdon, Putteridge, Verulam, Watford and Welwyn.  The meet is designed primarily to give younger, less experienced swimmers an opportunity to compete against competition from other clubs, but with almost 90% of swims being personal bests or first time swims, and no fewer than 31 consideration times for the 2017 County Championship being achieved along with a new age group record for Holly Robinson in the 100 fly there were some significant individual performances. The atmosphere at the meet was fantastic with both swimmers and parents noisily supporting their friends in the pool.

Sunday, 24 April 2016 12:49
31 largely younger Hemel swimmers participated in the second long course competition held at the new Wycombe pool since it was opened in January.  Between them they won 9 golds and 17 silver and bronzes, and set 18 new long course age group records.  67 of the 105 entries were first time swims in a 50m pool, which will stand those swimmers in good stead for the future, and nearly half the times when converted were equivalent to short course PBs.
