The City of Coventry Swimming Club was formed in 1973 by an amalgamation of the city"s three competitive swimming clubs:
- Godiva Ladies
- Three Spires
They had each been successful teaching and coaching centres in their own right prior to the amalgamation. The teaching and development role has been continued throughout the years up to the present day with the Friday evening Club night.
The targets for the Club throughout the season are:
- To improve our Clubs National ranking
- To have more International success and recognition for members
- To have more qualifiers at National & District events.
- To win every league and relay team event
- To increase the number of competitive opportunities for members
- To increase the numbers of members involved in running the Programme
Prior to attending the Swim School your child"s ability will have been assessed and they will have been placed into a suitable class. There are 30min lessons for Stages 1-4 and 40 min classes for Stages 5-7.
The Swim School is an independent company to the Club and therefore operates under its own policies and procedures however still follow Swim England guidelines and policies.
The cost of the lessons is paid for by a monthly direct debit. Further details of the Swim School can be found on the dedicated website www.coventryswimschool.co.uk
There are ten levels of classes, all following Swim Englands Learn to Swim Framework. On achieving the
relevant standards, swimmers qualify to receive the appropriate Learn to Swim Framework award (certificate and
badge) and are moved up to the next level. At level 6 and above swimmers can be offered the opportunity
to join the competitive swimming squads via the Pathways Scheme or there are opportunities to move to the
Water Polo section. Swimmers in the higher levels (levels 7+) can be given the opportunity to take part in the
"Sprint Nights" in the competitive squad section; these normally take place on the first Friday of
each month between 6.00 and 7.00pm.
The Club is always looking to actively promote itself and swimming in general, by establishing links with local or national companies through sponsorship "partnerships".
This would help to significantly reduce costs such as subscriptions, pool hire, insurance, travel etc.
