MASTERS SWIMMING INFORMATION

Hertford Swimming Club Adults Swimming Sessions

 

We now offer three 1-hour sessions a week at Hartham Pool, Hertford. These are on Wednesday at 7.30-8.30pm, Friday morning at 6.30-7.30am and Saturday morning at 7-8am. Swimmers may choose to swim in 1, 2 or all 3 sessions weekly for a fixed monthly fee.

 

Our Masters sessions are for swimmers aged 18y up & cater for a wide range of age & abilities. Swimmers seeking stroke improvement must be able to swim at least 25m on front and back without stress & be confident out of their depth. We also cater for club & county level competitive swimmers. Quite a few of us are swimming for general fitness & fun only while others use the session to train for open water swims or indoor competition.

Training schedules are provided which allow swimmers to vary distances and stroke practices according to their aims and ability.   Stroke development swimmers can focus on one stroke or considerably reduce the distance eg if they need to increase fitness gradually. Swimmers are encouraged to pursue personal goals & learn new skills, benefiting from guidance offered in a relaxed & sociable setting. There are opportunities to compete but there is no obligation to do so.

Joining Hertford SC

 

We offer 2 free swims for you to try us out without obligation before you need to let us know whether or not you wish to continue attending and join Hertford SC. We do ask you to complete our Club trials & Swim England registration form, by email if possible, before your first try-out session. This provides insurance cover & enables us to hold essential contact & medical details eg in case of emergencies or to notify you of pool closures. If you decide not to join, this form is deleted in accordance with the data protection act. If you do decide to join we will process the form & email you our fees letter. There are no ‘joining dates’ ie you can start attending at any time.

 

Fees:

 

You will be asked to pay session fees by direct debit charged monthly. There is an annual membership fee which covers the Swim England registration fee. This will be charged with your first sessions fee and each subsequent January. You don’t have to stay the whole hour of each training session eg if building up fitness gradually, but there’s no reduction in fees if you leave sessions early.
