National


National Teams – Swimming, Diving & Life Saving

  • Swimming

    CSSC Sports and Leisure stage a national swimming, diving & life saving Championship each year usually in May.

    This is the main event of the CSSC swimming calendar with several smaller events including Water Polo held against the Police, Combined Services etc. Details of these can be found on the CSSC Sports and Leisure website.


    Swimmers are required to compete in the CSSC National Swimming, Diving and Life Saving Championships and HASSRA traditionally fields a national squad of up to 50 members ranging in age from around 21 to 71 plus. They are of all standards from those “Steady Eddy's”, who pull in a few points each but we couldn't do without, to the stars who always come in the first three of any race they enter. A great friendly crowd of people who enjoy the competition without losing sight of the fact that we want to win!

    The 2016 CSSC National Swimming, Diving and Life Saving Championships took place at Ponds Forge, Sheffield on the 5th & 6th May. Once again the HASSRA team put in a first class performance retaining the overall aggregate team award, the Fred Humphreys Shield, for the 4th year in a row! Well done HASSRA!

    The planning now starts for next year - we need to try and recruit new members particularly in the younger masters categories so try and spread the word where possible about this great event.
