After a successful Youth Championships In April, it was the turn of the 'Age Groupers' to shine at the London Age Group Championships, held at Crystal Palace Sports Centre.  Sending a team of 30 swimmers, we were by far the loudest and well supported team at the Championships, if there was a Hillingdon swimmer in a final then Crystal Palace knew about it!  It was a great meet not just summed up by medals and lots of PB’s, but many swimmers made finals for the first time at Regional Championships.  Our younger swimmers benefited from the team atmosphere and will surely be on the hunt for medals and finals next season. Swimmer’s also took the opportunity to post themselves strong times, that leaves them high in the rankings for the Summer Nationals as the closing of the qualification window approaches.

On the CLUB EVENTS  page find information about the Club's popular HOAC Day on Saturday July 9th. Book early, places for the activities are limited to 50 children and its always a really great social day for the swimmers and their parents.
Also find information about the next In-House HSC J1 Training Course due to be run in the Autumn. This was very succesful last year and  training to be a Timekeeper and Judge is of huge benefit to the Club and therefore to your child's swimming. Contact Teresa Jones, Club Chairman for more information.


On Saturday 21st May, the 2nd round of the NLGL was held at Northolt Leisure Centre. The teams competing, in addition to Hillingdon, included Brent, Anaconda, Northolt and Acton. We finished 3rd overall. The team spirit on the day was fantastic. Despite being the smallest team there (6 male/8 female), both JP & YP didn't disappoint as they were the loudest and most supportive group. It was a fantastic event for everyone involved and some well deserved PB's were achieved.
I would like to give a shout out to both Hishanth Letchimiganthan & Sean Gubatanga for voluntarily filling shortfalls on the team so that we could compete in every event.
Overall, a fantastic Saturday afternoon. Bring on round 3!!!
Peter Smart RNSS Coach


On Saturday 21st May, HSC attended the Chalfont Otters SC Mini Meet.  This meet was for swimmers aged 8 to 11 years and the club took a strong team of 57 young swimmers, some competing for the first time!  It was a great Meet with majority of swimmers achieving new personal best times!  Coach, Teddy Loveridge commented "The young swimmers of HSC showed fantastic team spirit and camaraderie, it was an exciting atmosphere to be amongst. Congratulations to all swimmers who achieved new personal best times and to our medal winners."

On Saturday 21st May a group of 19 swimmers visited the London Aquatic Centre to see the European Swimming Championships. It was an afternoon of very exciting swimming and great success for the GB team, as we saw gold medal performances from Adam Peaty and Fran Halsall plus other medallists Georgia Davies and Ross Murdoch. After the session finished our swimmers had the opportunity to see the GB team members for autographs and photos.
Thanks to Lesley Westendorp, Natalie Jones, Teresa Jones, Paula Bowley and Leon Van Zyl for accompanying the children on a memorable day out.
