About Us

The Coventry programme was the first scheme in Britain to employ a full time Director of Coaching. The first appointment was Hamilton Bland, who was the Great Britain Olympic Coach. The current Senior Management Team comprises; Paul Wilson (Head Coach), Jo Deakins (Business Development Manager) & Sarah Ruckwood (Finance and Admin Manager).

The scheme has produced numerous successes at National and International level and continues to do so today.

The scheme is a self-financing structure, receiving no direct monetary support from the City Council or other agencies. We do however, enjoy a close and positive relationship with the Local Authority & CV Life. This is reflected in the encouragement given to talented swimmers progressing from Level 7 of their Aquarius Learn to Swim Scheme, to develop their swimming further in our Coaching Programme via the Pathways scheme. We are also developing relationships with other Private Learn to Swim Providers within the City and also local Schools through the Pathways scheme.

The revenue to run our Coaching Scheme is generated by:
1. Monthly billing of Club members
2. The promotion of Open Meet competitions.
3. Fund raising by training squad members and families
4. Donation from Coventry Swim School
