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

  • 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.

Barnet Copthall Novices Meet

We have been invited to attend a novices meet for swimmers aged between 9 and 12 on 9th October 2011. We would like to enter your child for 50m front crawl, 50m backstroke and 50m breast stroke. The charge for this is £4.50 per stroke – payable to Forward Hillingdon Squad.

The attached document provides full details of the meet from Barnet Copthall Swimming Club. The summary is as follows:

Breast Stroke and Back Stroke (all) warm up time is 8.30am
Freestyle (girls) warm up time 1.00pm
Freestyle (boys) warm up time 4.15pm

Please confirm entries as soon as possible, as the meet is a first come first serve. We will be unable to accept entries after 5th September. Payments for entry must be received in full to allow your child to be entered to swim.

 

Volunteer Assistant Coaches Wanted

We are looking for volunteer coaches to join the coaching team at FHS.

The role does not require previous experience, or a knowledge of how the strokes are performed as ongoing training will be provided.  If you are interested in progressing, the club is also happy to assist with the cost of qualifying.

Ideally, we are looking for additional help on Fridays and Sundays as we are moving into 4 lanes and the swimmers will benefit from having the extra eyes and teaching pointerss that you will be able to provide.

All coaches are CRB checked.

If coming poolside is not of interest but you would like to participate in the success of the club, we are always interested to speak to parent volunteers.  Please see Iain, Krys or Charlotte for more information.

 

Congratulations Darren

We would like to congratulate Darren on his completion of the 2011 Virgin London Marathon.

Darren's time of 6 hours 33 minutes and 51 seconds is highly commendable for his first marathon.
