RNSS Reminder

A quick reminder for RNSS that the last training session is THIS FRIDAY 22nd July which will be a fun session at Highgrove.

Goodbye and Thankyou to Alex Carr.

The Club would like to say thankyou  to Alex Carr who took his last RNSS coaching session today, after coaching at Hillingdon Swimming Club for a number of years. Alex is well known, particularly to the older swimmers, having been a Coach for the Senior County and the Masters Squads. We wish him well in his very busy day job and are really pleased that he has agreed to find time to come back to do occasional cover work. Thankyou Alex and good luck!

New Squad Structure from September 3rd

As of Saturday 3rd September, we will be changing the squad structure within the Club. Head Coach John Adye's, presentation from Sunday, can be found here. Squad lists will be announced shortly and the neccessary changes to the website will be made.
We look forward to working with swimmers and parents to ensure that Hillingdon Swimming Club swimmers are offered the best swimming opportunities possible.

London Region Open Water Championships

On July 10th, a team of 6 swimmers competed at the London Open Water Championships at Surrey Docks.  All were entered in the 1500m race and came back with some great results.  This competition also acted as the Middlesex County Open Water Championships.  Aarian Lally, who has already qualified for ASA Open Water Nationals, was using the race as preparation, and ended up coming 1st in both the London Region and Middlesex County!  To top that off, Aarian came 2nd overall in the race, only loosing out by a few meters to swimmers 4 years older than him.  The rest of the boys, Oliver Latham picked up 2 silvers for the London Region and Middlesex County finishing behind Aarian. His placings mean Oliver has been invitied to the ASA Open Water Nationals.  The younger age group had Will Hensman, who came 4th in London and picked up a Bronze in the Middlesex County.  Rounding up the boys, Cameron Bartholomew came 5th in London and 4th in Middlesex County.  The Girls, Emily Driver achieved the same feats as Aarian and came 1st in both the London Region and Middlesex County. Like Oliver, she has also been selected for ASA Open Water Nationals at the end of this month.  Macey Willis came 3rd but unfortunately made a slight mistake on the finish and was disqualified but swam the house down!  Well done team - we look forward to having more swimmers and success at Open Water next year!
