FHS - Forward Hillingdon Squad

Welcome to the FHS website.

We hope that we have provided enough information on this website to enable you to see what we do, how we do it and whether it is the right choice for you and your children.

FHS Members - please ask Charlotte Lee to register you with the site (you will need to tell her your name and eMail address) - this will let you into our special club area where you will find more information about how the club is operating, how we are improving and details of swimmer performance and development.

Our hours at Uxbridge are:

  • Friday - Competitive swimmers 7.30pm - 9.00pm : All swimmers 8.00pm to 9.00pm
  • Sunday - Juniors 4.30pm - 5.30pm : Seniors 5.30pm - 6.30pm
Botwell Pool in Hayes.
  • Wednesday - 7.00pm - 8.00pm
This Wednesday session will have limited numbers and will continue to develop the swimmer.
Poolside warm-ups start 10 minutes before each session - all swimmers are expected to attend.

If you are interested in your child being assessed and having a trial with FHS please contact  Charlotte Lee for further information.

Autumn Term

Hopefully you have all had a restful and pleasurable summer.  Now is the time to get back into the swing of things with the new term starting, the Coaching team at FHS would like to also look at the new term as a fresh start.

We would like to ask all swimmers to be on the poolside 10 minutes before the session start.  We have noticed more recently that we have a number of swimmers who need extra warm up before the session starts.  We would like to organise this as a group.  Please arrive in plenty of time to allow for changing.  Charlotte will leave the reception 15 minutes before the session starts, please make sure that you report to Charlotte/James if you arrive after this time.

ALL swimmers must bring a drink with them.  We are seeing a number of swimmers regularly arriving without a drink. Dehydration during swimming is very common and initially presents and headaches and feeling unwell.

Kit bags are required for all full members.  We appreciate that there is an initial cost involved, therefore would ask that you start with fins and then add kick-boards and pull buoys.  Please make sure your kit has your name on it as the poolside helpers will help to clear the poolside on Sundays.

Due to work commitments Charlotte will be away from 15th September, returning 23rd September - If you need to contact Charlotte during this time, please use email.

 

 

Sunday 23rd September Session Cancelled

Due to the gala that is being held at the pool, there will be no swimming on this Sunday.

 

Summer Opening Times

With summer looming ever so closer and the weather hinting of some sunshine, it's time to let you know when we are swimming during the holidays.

July:

The Water Polo League have got 2 Sundays booked these are 8th July and 15th July.

As these sessions will be unavailable to us, the Water Polo Squad have offered us the use of the 2 hour session they have on a Saturday.  The date for this is to be confirmed and an email will go to all parents.

August:

We have decided to not hold the Wednesday sessions at Botwell Pool during August, these do not prove to be popular during the summer and cancelling these will ease the pressure on parents to attend mid-week.  The session dates are:

1st August, 8th August, 15th August, 22nd August and 29th August.

All Friday and Sunday sessions will remain the same and run as normal.
