What is Pathways?
Pathways are three
swimming link groups that are designed to bridge the gap between learn to swim lessons and competitive
swimming. We aim to introduce the City of Coventry Swimming Club, either the competitive side or the Junior
Club and swimming for the conrtinued enjoyment of the sport.Whilst swimmers are in these groups they continue
to develop all strokes, starts, turns and rules of competitive swimming whilst also continuing with their
current learn to swim lessons.
The three groups are designated by:
This group is by invitation only and meets for a period of 10-12
weeks. These sessions run on Sundays from 3pm until 4.30pm at the Alan Higgs Centre. Swimmers are charged
£5 per lesson x number of weeks for the course. The group is targeted for 10 years and under. At the end
of the course swimmers are invited to join the Club Training Squads or given feedback on which skills they
need to improve in order to be invited into the club. There are three courses per year, running roughly
alongside school term dates. Paperwork for joining the Club is completed for this group.
Assessments for pathways 1 have been suspended due to COVID-19. When we know when we can return we will publish the assessment dates for the remainder of 2020 and 2021.
This group is a continuous group. The group meets on Fridays from
7pm until 8pm and a Sunday from 4.30pm until 6pm at the Alan Higgs Centre. Swimmers pay their money to
Coventry Swim School. This group is targeted for 11 years and over. Some younger swimmers may be invited into
the group if they have followed the Pathways 1 course and are close to the criteria for joining the swimming
club. The cost of this group is £20.00 per month if do 1 session per week or £30.00 if attend both
sessions per week. The aim of the group is for members to develop skills and aptitude to join City of Coventry
Like Pathways 2 this is a continuous group that meet
on Sunday afternoons 4.30-6.00pm in at the Alan Higgs Centre. Swimmers pay their money to Coventry Swim
School. This group is for swimmers who are in Stage 8 of Coventry Swim School stage 8/pathways group
(6.00-7.00pm on Friday) to give them access to another swim session per week. The cost of this group is also
£20.00 per month if attend 1 session per week or £30.00 per month if attend both sessions per
