Counties 2017 - Weekend One Volunteers Final Call

Tuesday, 17 January 2017 10:26

Thanks for all your offers of help so far. We are still short of volunteers this weekend particularly for the following roles:

  • Stewards - team to organise swimmers for heats and finals, monitor changing rooms, and access areas.
  • Event statistician to crunch the results and highlight the key findings.
If you are able to give your time even for one session please sign up here, click the SignUp button on the left or drop us an email for more information at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

As per usual volunteering means you avoid sitting in a sweaty balcony, get free entrance to the competition and get a birds eye view of the swimming!

Counties 2017 - Entries

Friday, 13 January 2017 13:22

Hertfordshire ASA would like to state that no further correspondence with individuals will be made relating to County Championships 2017.

Parents of swimmers need to take any grievances up with their club administration - all the rejections, other than "over subscription" are due to errors at club level.

The Hertfordshire ASA event staff intended to publish accepted and rejected lists by 16th December. Unfortunately, due to the poor quality of a high number of entries, they were unable to hit that deadline, and have worked tirelessly over the Christmas break and into the New Year, attempting to unravel those submissions.

Responsibility to check entry details lies with the clubs’ administrators. How clubs handle entries internally, whether they direct swimmers at events, or ask parents for times, is an internal club decision. It is the responsibility of the Herts ASA event staff to validate the entry times against qualifying and consideration times, and to verify where and when the submitted times were achieved.

Herts ASA event staff now have 8 days to finish their preparations for this year’s County Championships.
