Swimming
Your child will visit Coventry Sports Centre for Swimming Lessons. As well being fun, swimming teaches your child valuable skills and has been proven to be one of the best forms of exercise.

Your child will need to bring a swimming costume and towel, marked with their name in a plastic carrier bag.

Arm-bands, body belts and other swimming aids are provided by the Sports Centre. Goggles are not usually permitted during swimming lessons.

GIRL’S SWIMMING KIT

  • One piece swimming costume
  • In addition, if necessary, girls can wear tight fitting footless tights underneath the swimming costume.
  • Girls’ swimming costumes should not have a skirt attached as this restricts movement and makes learning to swim much more difficult.
  • Headscarves should not be worn, however, to cover the head, girls should wear a latex swimming cap (see picture).

BOYS SWIMMING KIT

  • Swimming trunks or shorts must be worn.
  • Boys cannot wear t-shirts.
  • If shorts are chosen they must be proper swimming shorts and not normal football/PE shorts. Shorts must be above the knee in length and have no buttons or zips on them. If they are too long, it will restrict movement and make learning to swim much more difficult.
