Back to Basics

After taking a long hard look at the development of swimmers within FHS, and liaising with Dave Hemmings (Head Coach, Hillingdon Borough Squad) -FHS has comitted to a development training plan that will enable all swimmers to better achieve their full potential.

In order to do this, there are some fundamental areas in the swimmers technique that require attention before we can progress futher. To this end, most of the training sets towards the end of 2009 and a majority of the sets in early 2010 will concentrate on the basic swimming requirements for a competetive swimmer.

We plan to develop progressive sessions that will start on a Friday, continue on a Sunday and conclude on a Monday session. The wednesday session is a later session and is attended by more of our senior swimmers and as such, we will leave this for endurance, stamina and fitness.

If you wish to improve, we would ask that you do your best to attend at least two of these three core sessions regularly so that the full benefit of the training plan can be enjoyed.
