NEW ADMISSIONS
Trials for new members are held every Saturday at 1:00 pm. Children must be able to swim two lengths of  Backstroke, Breaststroke, Front Crawl and some Butterfly, all to a standard required for competative swimming set by the Club.  A coach will assess the strokes and stamina of the new swimmer and if accepted will assign  them to a lane/group or the Coaching Course. All swimmers are welcome and the club has an equity policy.
We do not have any provision for Masters swimmers.
Please email us first club@Woodchurchsc.co.uk  or telephone 677 4798 to advise us you may be coming  for a trial.


COACHING COURSE
This is for children aged 7 years and over who can already swim and have reached the minimum entry standard.  We operate the main coaching course sessions on a Saturday.with an additional session on Monday The children are graded according to their ability.and after 12 sessions they are tested on their progress with behaviour during those lessons also being taken into account. Many children require time to reach the main club standard of swimming. After the initial "taster" sessions, swimmers will be required to join the club, paying by standing order  .

CLUB PROGRESSION
A progressive swimming structure operates within the club and the club has adopted the ASA National Plan for Teaching.  Coaching course members will be tested every 12 sessions to assess their progress and fitness.  On attaining the required level, they will be offered full junior membership.  Thereafter, progression through the various groups/lanes is by individual assessment by the coaches/teachers in consultation and having regard to the times and fitness levels in each lane.  These times and fitness level criteria will be revised from time to time.

CLUB MEMBERSHIP
This is offered to those who reach a sufficiently high standard of technique and stamina in most aspects of their swimming. Membership subscription is 20.00 per month payable by standing order.
