“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.”
The BHSC is geared towards competitive swimming. The club is structured to allow our young swimmers in Learn to Swim to progress all the way through to the top end of our competitive programme. This happens in a progressive way through each squad. Every squad has specific criteria and goals which gives a clear pathway from one squad to the next.
The wealth of experience and drive our teachers and coaches bring will help you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be. We are a competitive club, so we do believe in excellence both from our staff and swimmers.
Our philosophy is to develop extremely competent swimmers whilst bringing fitness and enjoyment into your lives. We strive to offer the best in swimming teaching, coaching and dry-land tuition we can offer.
Junior camp - Day 2
Sunday started early with the first swimmers up at 6am - obviously eagerly awaiting the days activities. We started with a good breakfast followed by a 2 hour land training session which consisted of circuit training, some stamina work and working on reactions. A very competitive team took part in the water bottle challenge which was won by Diya. After land training the pool session began with the main emphasis on backstroke techniques. Lunch followed, and once again, everyone had a great meal.
This weekend saw the Harrow swimmers competing on three fronts. With this being the last weekend for Regional qualification for our younger swimmers, it was an important one. The biggest group of entrants was at Luton. Due to a few rejections to important swims, a few swimmers then choose to enter Staines in order to try and achieve their Regional times. We also had a small group compete at Enfield in the Middlesex County Development meet.
Last weekend 11 swimmers competed in the London Youth Regional Championships. Regionals are broken into two groups, Age Groups & Youth Championships. The Youth Championships are for swimmers aged 15& over. Our swimmers had to achieve qualifying standards throughout the season to compete at these Championships. Giving every swimmer the opportunity to compete against the best swimmers across London, in Order to become the best swimmer in London.

Congratulations to all these swimmers.
Keep up the good work
The Pestilence is an outstanding new book by the father of one of the Harrow swimmers, Aaliyah Ansari.
Set in Jerusalem. The Pestilence tells the story of a Healer. It begins when a mysterious electrical phenomenon rolls above the cities of the world. The lightning which comes from the east, shines as far as the west and turns night into day. The book is a thriller, a page-turner unfolding over a sixteen day period which counts down the arrival of the Pestilence.
Faisal wrote parts of the book while poolside and has promised that for Book 2 one of the characters will be based on a BHSC coach. We watch with interest! Link to the book.
