Dear Parents and Swimmers,
We have a busy period of swimming coming up after the summer break and as the County Championships are now in January this has created a busy qualifying period resulting in many Open Meets filling up and closing their entries early.
The club diary has been updated to reflect this on the website here -
With this in mind we have already uploaded most of the entry packs for the Meets between now and Christmas onto the website here -
We need to make sure our entries are in early to avoid the disappointment of being rejected.
If you can, please get some of your entries to us before the summer break.
Below is the list of meets and Club Champs with their deadlines:
The Hoddesdon September Open Meet on 17th September - For all Dolphins, Sharks and Junior squads has a deadline of this Friday 15th July. We will extend this until Friday 22nd July to allow extra time.

Please make sure you get your entries in ASAP for these meets.
There will be no late entries as this will delay sending off all the other entries and possibly meaning we are then rejected from the Open Meet.
Most of the entry packs are online so you can look at them all and decide which events you would like to enter at which meet.
Many thanks.


  Cheshunt Secure 2nd Place in the 2nd round of the Peanuts League.
Posted By : Cheshunt SC On 2016-06-16 12:44:55
Saturday 11th June saw our younger swimmers take part in the2nd round of the Peanuts League at Borehamwood Swimming Pool. A very competitive gala saw our swimmers exceed expectations and finish 2nd on the night, 3 points behind winners Ware. 

The girls Captain, Millie Clark, brought home our opening 1st place of the night in the U/13 50m Breaststroke (41.12), Millie then followed this up with another win in the girls U/13 50m Backstroke (38.45), this was then followed with individual 1st places from Aaron Pickard U/12 50m Freestyle (34.85) and 9 year olds Emily Pickard 25m Backstroke (23.15), Sam Safavi-Zadeh 25m Breaststroke (24.69) and in her Peanuts League Debut, Natalia Broadowska, in the girls 25m Freestyle (19.20).

Individual 2nd places were achieved by Woody South U/11 25m Freestyle (16.64) & Breaststroke (22.94), Evie Brown U/12 50m Backstroke (41.80), Igor Mordeja 9 years 25m Backstroke (21.70) & 25m Freestyle (17.13), Max Coltman U/11 25m Backstroke (21.02), Dayna Shepperson U/12 50m Freestyle (34.63) & Taylor Coe in the U/13 50m Butterfly (38.25).

Individual 3rd places were also completed by Jake Evans U/11 25m Butterfly (18.18), Aimee Williams U/13 50m Freestyle (34.88) and again Taylor Coe also in the U/13 Freestyle (33.87).

The Relay team of Emily Pickard, Natalia Broadowska, Fresia Goldsmith and Phoebe Brookman stormed to a first place in the 9 years 4 x 25m Freestyle relay, the young team then completed the double when Fresia Goldsmith brought home the team of Emily Pickard, Emily Pym and Natalia Broadowska in the 4 x 25 Special relay.

2nd& 3rdplace finishes were carried off by Max Coltman, Woody South, Jake Evans and Finlay Jackson in the boys U/11, and Dayna Shepperson, Mille Clark, Rosie Batt and Aimee Williams in the Girls U/13 4 x 25 Medley & Freestyle relays retrospectively.

The night concluded with the boy’s Captain, Taylor Coe, leading the team of Emily Pickard, Igor Mordeja, Simran Misir, Woody South, Dayna Shepperson, Aaron Pickard and Mille Clark to 1st place in the 8 x 25m Squadron Relay.

Coach Richard Walker said that the “team was fantastic tonight. We looked faster and shaper than what we did in the first round and that is a testament to the way the swimmers are training. They have a good team spirt and I firmly believe that we can be stronger and faster still in the final round. We will look forward to it and I am sure we will compete with whoever we are swimming against”.

  Learn how to Time Keep
Posted By : Cheshunt SC On 2016-06-02 19:11:22

All volunteers are welcome from age 14 upwards.…

It won’t cost you anything.

Places are limited, so please apply early.

All you need is two spare hours before the club sprints, a stopwatch (we can provide one if necessary), clipboard and pen.

The practical session will be run during the club sprints.

Please fill in the form on the website HERE.

The Club needs Timekeepers to help with Galas, Sprints & Club Championships, as well as occasionally helping at Open Meets.
For each Gala we enter or host, we have to supply Whips to help organise the children and officials such as Timekeepers & Judges to enable us to compete in the events.

Our Club Sprints & Club Championships are licensed so we need a number of timekeepers to time the lanes, so we can use these official times to help the swimmers achieve their PBs, County, Regional and National times. This is also the case when Time Trials are undertaken in the training sessions.

The more people we get to volunteer, the fewer times they will be asked to help out, as the workload can be spread around, so you may only be asked once in a while.

  Hertfordshire ASA Management Board members and post holders
Posted By : Cheshunt SC On 2016-05-14 17:59:00
Nominations for six members of the Management Board, and for the posts of Chairman, Disability Manager, Synchronised Swimming Manager, Water Polo Manager and Welfare Officer must be submitted by 31st May 2016.

Elections will take place on 6th July 2016 at the Annual Council Meeting. 

Members of the Management Board must be ASA members of any club in the county, but no particular skill or knowledge is required, only a desire to contribute impartially to the decision-making in the county for the benefit of our athletes in all the aquatic disciplines.

There are only four meetings per year at the moment, plus the Annual Council Meeting. The requirement of members is attendance at those meetings, having read the paperwork circulated prior to the meeting. Items are discussed and decisions made, as well as monitoring the work of the discipline committees. The meetings are held on a weekday evening, at Welwyn at 8pm and last, at maximum, for two hours, as the room hire is until 10pm. 

There is no requirement for additional time or input, only if an individual wishes to expand their commitment.

Can you help?

More information is available on the Herts ASA Website HERE.
