Poolside Helper Course

FHS will be running the ASA Poolside Helper Course at Uxbridge Leisure Centre on December the 11th 2011. The session will start at 13:00 and run for just under four hours in the classroom with a further three hours practical work poolside. The practical work will be organised to suit individual candidates over three x one hour sessions on Fridays and Sundays after the classroom work. We apologise that we cannot offer this course in a single session.

This is an introductory certificate is for those who wish to help their club or organisation by working on poolside under the guidance of an ASA Level 2 Certificate for Teaching Swimming holder.

There is no assessment as this is not a teaching qualification. A certificate of attendance will be provided subsequent to completion of the course.

Candidates must be 14 years of age at the start of the course.

The cost for this course is fixed at £25 per person and includes the ASA certificate fee.

For further details, please contact Iain Henderson

Novice Meet at Barnet Copthall

Post Event Review

It was an early start for all involved, leaving Hillingdon at 07:30 to travel to Barnet Copthall Pool for an 08:15 warm up. With a little argument with routes, we arrived on time and joined a number of other teams for our first outing in some time.

We had four swimmers with us at this event - all boys between 9 and 12 - and all had entered the 50m Backcrawl, Breaststroke and Frontcrawl events. Each event was run with groupings based on entry times, and finals were grouped by age.

We had a couple of disqualifications on start, turn or finish - so the coaches will be working very hard on these over the next months, but we also had three placings in the finals and one just missing out (9th - 8 made it to the finals).

The final results were very impressive for one swimmer, who walked away with Gold in breaststroke, 4th in frontcrawl and 6th in backcrawl.

Well done to all the participants - you represented the club in a very good way, and you should be proud of your swims.
