Our Learn 2 Swim programme has taught thousands of people to be confident in the water, building a legacy for local sport.
We have a variety of classes at four different swimming pools, for every age group and for children and adults with disabilities.
Your journey begins at birth when you start our little splashers confidence building classes and continue through the teaching Levels 1 to 7 After this you can transition through to our Aqua and Life Saving Activities. You may then wish to continue on with Adult classes or even join Ren 96 Swimming Club at any time throughout your programme. There is so much for you to access. If you fancy a career in Swimming, are 16 years of age, and would like to become a Swimming Instructor all you have to do is visit our Coach Education Page.
Our minimum class sizes make for an enhanced learning experience and we work to a class ratio of 1 teacher, teaching in the water, to a maximum of 6 children for our beginner levels. Our advanced classes are taught to a ratio of 1 teacher up to 8 children. However much we strive to keep our ratios to these minimum numbers, there may be times that these numbers are raised to 8 and above. You can also access 1-to-1 and 1-to-2 lessons for a more individual interaction.
Lessons last 30 minutes and are sold in blocks of 10 or 20 sets. Blocks are required to be topped up before your child's last class. Please be aware that payments cannot be refunded for non-attendance.
You can apply online here or in person at any East Renfrewshire leisure centre.
