New Swimmers and Volunteers - Join Us

   
How to Join NBSC

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 4-7 years simply come along for a trial to one of our sessions (Monday and Wednesday at 6pm or Sunday at 4pm at the Pingles) and give your child an opportunity to learn skills that generations have gained with us during the last 80+ years.

 

The Swimming club has a team of dedicated volunteer teachers, who teach our successful swim scheme alongside a selection of young helpers who 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.

 

We are also always looking for volunteers to help in all aspects of our club and full training will be given where applicable. Simply come along for a discussion at one of our sessions mentioned above.

 

Swimmer pathways

   

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.


Sponsored Swim & JDRF

Nuneaton and Bedworth Swimming Club recently held a Sponsored Swim at the Pingles Leisure Centre to raise money for new equipment and to support their two chosen charities.

 

Sixty of the clubs swimmers took part, swimming anything from half a length right up to an astonishing 14K in the 3 hour session, where a grand total of £1395 was raised for the club and its charities, by the swimmers, parents, family and friends and local businesses.

 

The first presentation was to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation – JDRF, the world leading charity dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research.

 

Francesca and Jacob Paxton were on hand to present the cheque to JDRF’s Regional Fundraiser Jayme Balossino, during a club session at the Pingles Leisure Centre.

 

Both Francesca and Jacob have had type 1 diabetes for most of their lives and have both been members of the club since they were six years old. Their father, Steve, is secretary of the local support group, Type One Diabetes in Nuneaton & Coventry (TODINC). He said “We’re very grateful to the swimming club for helping JDRF in the very important work they do. Competing for the club has helped Francesca come to terms with her condition and JDRF are working hard to improve the lives of children like her and Jacob. The support group aims to help local families as well as arranging fun activities. The children have benefited greatly from meeting others like them.” To find out more about the support group, contact Steve on stevepaxton100@gmail.com and for more info on JDRF can be found on their website www.jdrf.org.uk.

Swim 21 Accreditation renewed

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”

POOLSIDE OFFICIALS

OFFICIALS

As a swimming club we need lots of volunteers throughout the club but we need committed support in one area in particular, Officials. We need officials for all team galas and we are expected to provide officials for Open Meets we attend as well. The more officials we have the better, we can then rotate the responsibility for team galas more fairly. Being an official also has big advantages on occasion, you get in for free, get refreshments and often a meal at Open Meets and you're that much closer to the action.
