2019 - May Glasgow International Swiiming meet LC

Congratulations Katherine, you continue to be an inspirational swimmer for many of our younger members, your peers and some of the older members who would like to remember when they could swim fast!!!

2019 - Beccles Development Open Meet results

Beccles Open Meet.-Halstead S.C. sent a small band of swimmers to compete in the Beccles open meet. The reason for travelling to Beccles is that they put in an 8 year age
group which very few meets have. It was also a time banded open meaning swimmers who went under those times were disqualified although their times were recorded. This type of meet enables the less experienced swimmer to compete on a more even level. Unfortunately the Scott family were unable to get their th...rough sustaining a puncture and Imogen Cunliffe had a prior arrangement but there will be other events in the future.I'm going to start with some amazing swims from our 8 year olds beginning with Maisie Draper who picked up 2 golds in her fly and free. We know she has talent but sometimes drifts off in training, but wow, put her on the blocks and she is totally focused and went like a rocket. Joseph (discus) Bale also gained a gold in the Breaststroke which we thought would be the case but his free and IM swims gained 2 silvers. Lacey Mae Russell had some god swims but unfortunately had 2 technical DQs, but they were tiny faults that can be eradicated, but it nevertheless takes away from her swims. After a very nervous start Emogene Kent Jackson in her first competition can be proud of her achievements but more importantly came away smiling. Sister Issabelle now on her 3rd competition is gaining great experience and although we have lots of work to do her enthusiasm and gutsy efforts will get her there quicker.What can you say about the Linney family, Rose, Ella and Chloe are probably one of the most improved swimmers in the club picking up several medals between them. A trait that encompasses all 3 girls is their magnificent starts and turns, by far they have the quickest reaction time off the blocks. Jasmine Bale could only enter 1 event due to her being too fast in the others but she still managed a medal.The last swimmer to mention is Franklin Farren Ladkin who is improving considerably over the last 6 months and it was a joy to see him pick up his first gold. All in all it definitely feels Halstead is going in the right direction and with the youngsters coming through there is becoming strength in depth. The next 2 years will see a strong junior section at least and these will be transformed into excellent senior swimmers of the future. Well done all.

Have your say - Proposed new Halstead Swimming Club kit

Parents and Swimmers,

The HSC committee are looking for your feedback/ideas on the Proposed NEW Halstead Swimming Club kit. It is proposed to used an Online provider to service all our kit requirements for the following reasons -

  • Using an online provider for our club kit gives our members the convenience to order whenever they like and for the items to be delivered directly to their home address. There is no minimum order. It also takes away the admin we currently have to provide when ordering club kit.
  • The items are a bit cheaper than the current club kit and we are able to offer a bigger range. We can also add other items to the range such as county t-shirts. We are also planning to add a white officials polo-shirt with the HSC logo.
  • They have tried to match up, in terms of colour, as closely as they can with what we currently have. This means that it will not look odd if some people have the old and some the new as at least the colour is the same or very similar.
  • Most of the tops come in children, ladies (being more fitted) and mens sizes.
  • All the bottoms are in black – the reasons for this are that: a) most of the bottoms are only available in black or navy; b) having royal blue tops and hoodies and black bottoms matches nicely with the backpack which is royal blue, white and black; and c) the black bottoms would match with existing club kit whereas the royal blue may be a different shade.
  • Items included are:
    • Poolside t-shirt and polo shirt (polo shirt only available in adult sizes but start from XS). These are in a light fabric, ideal for poolside
    • Cotton polo shirt for wearing to and from galas and competitions
    • Hoodies
    • Backpack
    • Drawstring bag
    • Shorts
    • 3 different long bottoms

We are looking for your feedback on the range of kit proposed, colours and design. Would you wear the kit? Do you like the proposed design/colours? Are there any additional pieces of kit you would like to see available? 

There has also been a suggestion that we could introduce a 'Supporters kit'. This would make our Parents/Guardians/Supporters visible at Galas, not just for the swimmers to see but for others supporters who may not know anyone else at the club.

2019 'Other Club Open Meets'

Halstead Swimming Club will be attending more 'Other Club Open Meets' in 2019 to allow swimmers to compete in both long course (50m pools) and Short course (25m pools).

These Open Meets are run and managed by 'Other clubs' and allow swimmers to compete in varying distance events including 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m swims. A Team managed by Matt Bale and Georgina Farren are working closely with the HSC coaches to identify a variety of Open Meets for 2019, also allowing some of the younger swimmers in the club to compete which is an invaluable experience.

All the details for these meets can be accessed under the 'Events' tab and 'Other Club Open Meets'. Please find any member of the HSC Committee, HSC Coaches or even talk to other parents if you need advice on Open meets, what they are and how they run.

It is important to mention that HSC have successfully run their own Open Meets for the last 9 years and these Open Meets are highly regarded for their organisation and quality of delivery by swimmers and other clubs. We have a section on this website specifically detailing 'Our Club Open Meets' surprisingly called 'HSC Open Meets'.

The National Junior Swimming League is one of 11 leagues that are affiliated to the Arena Junior - Inter League (the inter league is directly affiliated to the ASA) 
Within these leagues over 200 swimming teams throughout England and a team from Wales take part.  This is the premier junior swimming league in the united kingdom.  The aim of the inter-league is to promote inter-club competitions for 9 - 12 years, to encourage their progression in swimming and participation in sport.

Although Halstead narrowly missed the A final, they went onto win the consolation final and finish 7th in the league. On the night the club swam against Kingston Royals, Rochford, Camden Swiss Cottage B, Broomfield Park and Harringey Aquatics.
Assistant Head Coach John Lowe was thrilled with his teams performance.
Outstanding swims on the night came from Jack Weaver and Grace Rush who achieved 1st places along with the girls 12 years freestyle relay team - Grace Rush, Amber Pryor, Sophie Trie and Emma southgate.
