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
swimmers into the City of Coventry Swimming Club, or if already a member of the Learn to Swim Scheme within
the club this will introduce those swimmers to competitive side of the club. Whilst swimmers are in these
groups, they continue to develop all strokes, starts, turns and rules of competitive swimming whilst still
maintaining 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 weeks. These sessions run on Sundays from 3pm until 4.30pm in the diving pit at Coventry Sports
Centre. Swimmers are charged £30 for a 10 week 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.

This group is a continuous group. The group
meets on Fridays from 7pm until 8pm in the 50m pool, and a Sunday from 4.30pm until 6pm in the diving pit at
Coventry Sports Centre. Swimmers pay their money to Coventry Swimming Club. 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 £18.00 per
month of which you will receive an invoice. The swimmers also have to be members of City of Coventry Swimming
Club and the membership paid for that year.
Like Pathways 2 this is a continuous group that
meet on Sunday afternoons 4.30-6.00pm in the Diving Pit at Coventry Sports Centre. Swimmers pay their
money to Coventry Swimming Club. This group is for swimmers who are in Stage 8 of Coventry Swimming
Club’s Club night (6.00-7.00pm on Friday) to give them access to another swim session per week. The cost
of this group is also £18.00 per month of which you will receive an invoice. Swimmers again will be
