NBSC are running a sponsored swim event on Monday 6th July during the club session from 6.00pm-9.00pm. All Nuneaton Swim school swimmers can take part and gain distance badges from 5m upwards.
Due to this event there will be no lessons/training that evening.
All swimmers will be encouraged to take part in this fun event raising money for the Meningitis Research Foundation, JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Nuneaton & Bedworth swimming club.
As always to run an event such as this we rely on the help and support of our members, parents and families. If anyone is able to help on the night it will be really appreciated there is a volunteer list on the club desk where you can put your name down or see Kim Black and she will put you to good use!
Did you know?
You don’t need an invitation to join the learn to swim programme at the swimming club.
Do you have the next Nuneaton & Bedworth champion? We would love your child’s first club experience to be at the swimming club so join us and see what we have to offer.
If your child is aged 4-6 years simply come along for a trial to one of our sessions (Monday and Wednesday at 6pm or Sunday at 4pm) and give your child an opportunity to learn skills that generations have gained with us during the last 80+ years.
Swimming club teachers are all A.S.A. qualified and our young helpers in the water are all competent swimmers themselves.
We even offer a fast track scheme where swimmers who attend 2 or 3 times per week can really “hang on” to skills gained during previous lessons.
We offer a skill for life and a step on to the ladder of healthy living as well as a head start to schools swimming.
At swimming club the very young have the opportunity to follow the pathway from non-swimmer through to team swimmer and on to National swimming where swimmers compete at the British championships.
We also offer places to older children who can swim competently depending on the standard they have reached, please ask at our club desk next to the pool.
Nuneaton & Bedworth swimming club has several different pathways for our children to follow?
From joining as a beginner and progressing through our learn to swim bays the swimmers are truly on the road to achieving great things through swimming.
Swimmers who commit to swimming two or three times a week by the time they reach Bays 3 and 4 may be invited to follow our competitive swimmer pathway and swimmers who attend once a week are able to join our junior learner bay which leads to club swimming.
Both pathways offer a fantastic chance to keep fit and meet friends as well as gaining important lifelong skills. All groups are offered the chance to compete and gain awards to demonstrate their individual progress.
Nuneaton & Bedworth Swimming Club has retained its Swim 21 Essential Accreditation after an 11 month rigorous audit process covering 21 modules on all aspects on how to run a well-managed, focused and successful swimming club
The accreditation means that the Club is dedicated to creating the best possible swimming experience for all and to raising the quality of swimming provision across all areas of swimming.
It is more than a simple badge of honour. It guarantees parents that the quality of provision of swimming for children is of the highest quality. Swim 21 is a development that allows swimmers, teachers, coaches and those responsible for developing programmes at Nuneaton & Bedworth to continually improve and shows a club with good governance.
As a Swim 21 Club, Nuneaton & Bedworth ensures that it provides high quality, safe, effective, child friendly services for the benefit of all its swimmers and non-swimming members. It is all about putting the swimmers first and ensuring young learners follow the pathway that the governing body the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) recognises for training and competition.
Terry Freeman added,
“This award demonstrates the hard work and dedication show by our teaching staff, coaches, committee, parents and swimmers. The award is not just given to the club it needs to be earned. This kite mark is regarded as the highest standard a swimming club can achieve, it’s awarded by our governing body the ASA.
NBSC were one of the first clubs in the country to be awarded this certification in competitive development in 2005. As the Head Coach, I am extremely proud of our club’s achievements”
