Attached results spreadsheet shows swimmers times from Friday 24th May.
Please use your times when entering our Eric Shepherd Open Meet. Mandy is also still accepting entries to Basildon End of Season meet, which has no lower QTs.
You can enter these 50m races if you only have a 25m time. From a 25m time - double it and add 10%.
Also use the link on our Fixtures page to look up your ASA#... and don't forget your date of birth!
Essex League and Mini League
Harlow Penguins again won a resounding victory in round 4 of 4 of the Essex League, Division 3. This now guarantees us promotion to Div 2. and along with the National Swimming League is the second of our three leagues in which we have so far been promoted.
Essex Mini League - a confident home win puts Penguins into 2nd place in the table. With 3 more difficult meets to come a top 3 finish is still not guaranteed but Harlow is in with a good chance. There are no divisions in this league.
Anybody and everybody who wishes to announce something via this website, should send information to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be posted here in the News, Diary, or other relevant section, as well as being forwarded to the correct person who can deal with any request.

Penguins on Facebook
If you're a Facebook user, please join our Group "Harlow Penguins" to receive fast notices to your phone.
Check your results!
Its now possible to enter your surname on the British Swimming website and find your ASA#. Using your ASA# it is then possible to check your PBs whenever you swam at a licensed meet (non-licensed are not recorded). This proves your eligibility to enter the County Champs.
Long Course time conversions
Swimmers who enter Long Course meets and whose fastest time was set at Short Course, need to convert this using one of the following tables available on the ASA website. Obviously you can also use the tables in the opposite direction if you set a PB at Long Course.
Swimming techniques: videos of the world's best, from YouTube.
LeisureZone Swimming Groups
Young swimmers arriving for 6pm or 6.30 lessons must arrive 10 mins beforehand. Parents will be let through the gate and must accompany children to the poolside where each teacher will take the register for that group. After the lesson, parents must collect swimmers from poolside. Young children will not be allowed off poolside until a parent can be identified.
Anyone who doesn't yet know their Learn to Swim class on a Friday, please phone Debbie, or ask at the desk on Friday.
We request that parents of learn to swims stay onsite during the lesson. This is for any reason where your swimmer needs to leave the pool early. Parents of squad swimmers must leave a mobile phone number and be available to return promptly if you child needs to leave the water. Parents must deliver swimmers to the building and collect them from the building promptly after the session. HPSC cannot monitor the safety of children left in the carpark. Thank you.
