Everyone Active Hartham are proud to sponsor Ashley, Brodie and Sarah.

The centre will be supporting these athletes with their training by providing access to the centres gym and studio for the next year.
The team at Hartham will be eagerly watching their progression in competitive swimming and we will update our members every month on their development.

Here is some information on Ashley, Brodie and Sarah:

 

Ashley: Since August I have been training hard in the pool and the gym but regretfully at a reduced number of sessions due to the demands of school work as it’s my last year at school! Even though I haven’t completed as many gym sessions as I had hoped, I am still seeing improvements with lots of successful races, so from the gym sessions I have done, the work has paid off.

In September, we competed in the Isobel Hospice Gala held at Hitchin pool. This was the first competition of the season and we performed well, coming first overall, considering the reduced amount of training over the summer (which I don’t like because I find it hard to get back into training). I swam in three races and came first in all three of them.

Medals/ trophies from Presentation Evening

Next, was the Hertford S.C. Presentation Evening which was held at Sele School at the beginning of October. The evening consisted of awarding the medals/ trophies from the Club Championships which were held back in June/ July 2013. I received 11 medals - 10 gold and 1 silver- along with 10 trophies including the ‘Pineapple Cup’ which is the oldest and biggest cup. I was also awarded with a specially designed paper weight for competing in 75 galas for the club (these are just for team gala events, not open meets, meaning it is very hard to achieve because there aren’t many local galas around). On Friday 11th October, I captained a team of four swimmers, including myself, through the qualifying rounds of the ESSA (English Schools Swimming Association) at Everyone Active’s Woodside Pool in Watford. Presdales School came third in both the Medley and Freestyle relays, which qualified us for the National Schools Finals in 9th and 11th places respectively out of the whole country! The National finals would be held at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre at the end of November. The last event for October was on Saturday 12th where we all travelled to Hackney on a coach for the first round of the Arena League. This is the first year we have entered into this league so we were placed in division 2 (the bottom division) with many other teams who had entered for the first time, including Luton, Brompton, Basildon & Phoenix and the massive club of Hillingdon who have over 800 swimmers! I swam in five races (the maximum a swimmer is allowed to do) including the 200 IM- where I obtained a PB, 100 fly, 100 free and two relays. In this first round we excelled ourselves and came a credible 3rd out of eight teams.

Presdales Team- I am 2nd from right

On the first weekend of November, Cheshunt held their annual open meet at Southbury Road. I competed in the 100 IM, 100 fly, 50 free, 50 fly and 50 breast, collecting five county qualifying times, one regional qualifying time, a club record in the 100 fly, along with a PB, and three first and two second place finishes. On the 9th November, Hertford S.C travelled to Borehamwood for the second round of the Arena League. We came third on the evening, meaning we qualified for the final of the division two league in eighth place. I competed in the same five events as the previous round and achieved another PB in my 200 IM! At the end of November, I travelled to Crystal Palace National Sports Centre with three teammates from Presdales School to compete at the ESSA National Schools Relay Finals. We were seeded as the 11th fastest team in the country for the free relay, where I swam the lead off leg and touched home second in a long course (slower than short course) PB of 29.57 where the team came eighth during the heats. This great swim qualified us for the final! We then swam in the final, where we were up against some tough opposition who were all fee-paying schools, including Plymouth College pupil Ruta Meilutyte who is a three- time world record holder and won gold at the London 2012 Olympics. We came one place higher in the final, finishing as the seventh fastest team in the county. After both the free relays, our team then competed in the medley relay and came 13th overall. Here is the link to the Hertfordshire Mercury write up: http://www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk/Sport/Hertford-Ware/National-swimming-success-for-Presdales-pupils-20131128150320.htm

The Winter Regional Championships was the next event that I competed in which was held on the 7th December at the UEA pool in Norwich. I competed in the 50 fly and 50 breast, coming 27th overall (6th in the open category) and 17th (6th in the open category), with two county qualifying times a one regional qualifying time. I didn’t swim as well as I had wanted to but this may be due to the early start I had- we left the house at 5:30am, something that I wasn’t used to but other swimmers may be because they train at these early times of the morning. The next weekend saw Hertford compete in the final round of the Arena League at Beacontree Heath swimming pool. I swam the five same races as I had done in the previous rounds and recorded another PB in my 200 IM! Up against the top eight clubs in our division, Hertford entered the final round in eighth place only to better that place by coming seventh on the night- an outstanding performance for the first year we have entered this league! My last swim of 2013 was at Basildon & Phoenix’s open meet which was held at the Everyone Active Basildon Sporting Village, a 50 metre pool. On Saturday 21st December I competed in the 50 fly, where I swam slower than I had hoped. The next day was the 50 breast where I produced a long-course PB which converts to a short course PB too. This bettered my original regional entry time for the 50 breast. I came seventh in the 50 fly for the 15 and over age group and third in the 50 breast- a good race to end the year on a high note.

A new year begins and many more swimming experiences to come! After having a break over the Christmas holidays and eating far too much, training began on the 6th of January. Our first competition was the first round of the Major League on Saturday 11th January at Hemel Hempstead. It was a busy day for me as I played hockey at Leighton Buzzard and then came straight to the gala. But thanks to the gym work I had been doing, I had good stamina so I was able to keep going and swim well. I did five races- 100 free, 100 fly, medley relay, freestyle relay and the squadron (the fastest swimmer in each age group)- where I achieved four first places and a third in the squadron, meaning I won the Hertford teddy for the best swimmer on the day! As a team we came a credible first place overall; with two rounds left, we are in a good position to win the league. Hoddesdon Open meet was the next competition of 2014 which was held over both days of a weekend. On the Saturday I competed in the 100 free where I got a PB (0.20 off of a Regional Qualifying time, even though they have become much harder this year…) and came third, along with the 50 free where I finished in third place with a PB and just off another regional qualifying time! On Sunday, I swam the 100 fly in the second fastest time I have done during my whole time of swimming and came first. This was a great weekend for me with three faster entry times for the counties! The weekend after Hoddesdon was Stevenage’s open meet where I swam the 200 free and recorded another PB and came first. Hatfield open was the weekend after Stevenage on Saturday 1st February. I swam very well again during my 100 breast, gaining a PB by over one and a half seconds, making me only 0.24 seconds off of a regional qualifying time! At the open meet, I also met a prospective head coach of another club which I am looking to train with while I am at university. January was a very good month for my swimming with a PB in every race I swam in at every open meet and some fast times at galas. February has also started off very well and I hope it will continue.

Overall, since September, I have spent lots of hours at a swimming pool, whether for training, competitions, or for work- it’s like my second home! The gym sponsorship is really helping me to progress my swimming and I would like to train more times in the gym once my exams are over, along with working much more often. To show just how far I have come with the help of the gym sponsorship and hard training in the pool, I have achieved a total of 10 PB’s since the start of the season in September- a very promising outlook because in some seasons, I don’t achieve any PB’s at all- for example, a few years ago, I didn’t achieve a PB on my 50 fly for three whole years…! Once again, thank you very much for your sponsorship, it helps my swimming (as well as hockey!) a lot as you can see from the results above and I hope to keep training hard to achieve another regional qualifying time.

Brodie:

Since my last blog I’ve been really busy! 

Towards the end of the Summer I had one last attempt at getting my Regional time for 100 Free so I entered the last chance open meet at Hatfield.  My mate Ben came poolside with me and supported me during the warm up and gave me advice and I knocked a whole second off my PB and qualified for Norwich.  It was the first time I had qualified for Regionals and I was really pleased.  To prepare for the race I went over to the long course pool at Luton a couple of times with my Dad.  It is very different swimming in a 50m pool and weirdly you tend to swim slower as you don’t get the advantage of the speed off the turns!

I spent the weekend in Norwich scouting the pool and mentally preparing for my race.  It was only me and my coach Steve poolside and I was proud to be representing Hertford Swimming Club.  My Mum and my Nan were in the crowd and videoed my race on their ipad!  I came 2nd in my heat and put in a really good time.

Since getting a sponsorship from Everyone Active I have been training hard to see if I can get more regional times this year.  I have 4 qualifying times for Counties, 50 free and fly and 100 free and fly.  I prefer to focus on the strokes that I am good at and concentrate my training on developing for these strokes.  The gym membership has really helped with my core strength and I have certainly developed more upper body strength.  I try to go to the gym twice a week, either at Fanshawe after school or at Hartham before swimming.

Unfortunately I sustained an injury to my back late last year and have been having sports therapy to keep me flexible and mobile.  I wasn’t able to train as hard as I might have liked to but I am back to full strength now. 

As you know I also play baseball and have again been selected for the GB Cadet Team and my swimming has certainly helped with my fitness as I can out plank everyone!! 

Sarah:

It has been a great start to the season this year. I have been busy competing in many different competitions from Cheshunt open meet to begin the season, to Winter regional’s, up in Norwich  and the Hatfield Valentines open meet. Thanks to training at the gym, I achieved three winter regional qualifying times, and chose to swim the 100 and the 50 metres breaststroke at the competition. This was one of my high lights of the season so far as I swam well, got into the B final and came 5th in the final. I was very pleased with my result, and feel that the extra training in the gym helped me go this far. Another highlight was breaking the 50 metre breaststroke club record at the Hatfield Valentines open meeting. Again, I feel that I would not have been able to do this without the training I have been able to do at the gym to go alongside my training in the pool.

It’s been great, if not hard work, having they chance to train at the gym, to help improve my swimming. It’s been much harder to fit the training in, due to school pressures, but I’m managing to go twice a week, even if this does include an early morning session! I have been trying to push myself harder, by going for longer on the cardio machines and when doing circuits, and by adding extra weights when I’m using the machine weights. I can feel a real improvement when I swim, as the long sets start to feel ever so slightly easier, until the coach adds butterfly into the set!

The staff are really friendly and always there to help if you need a new exercise to add to a circuit, or if you need to work out what is best to work which muscles. I’ve been trying out many new exercises on both the power plates and the trx and I am really enjoying these to bits of equipment, as they are different to the conventional machines you get at the gym.

I’m really looking forward to the rest of this season, to the county championships and regional championships, and hope my training in the gym will really pay off at these events.
