Encouraging your child to learn to swim is one of the most important opportunities you can give them. If you get children interested in swimming when they're young there's a good chance they'll enjoy the water for the rest of their life.
Since September 2019, we have entered a partnership with Scottish Swimming and have adopted the Scottish National Swimming Framework. If your child was in lessons prior to this, please click here for information on the new swimming levels.
The Scottish Swimming National Framework provides a clear set of tried and tested techniques and skills combined with up to date teaching methods, all of which will ensure your child's swimming ability is improved. Enrol your child in swimming lessons today and you'll also have peace of mind that they're safer when they're near water.

This class is a pay as you go for children aged 8 years plus who can competently swim 400 metres without stopping. This is the next level transitioning on from Swim Skills 4. These classes further enhance strength/stamina, stroke technique, turns, breathing and streamlining, concentrating on all aspects associated with club training. This will help to develop their personal fitness and stamina. These classes will be in deep water.
Lessons are structured around children with either a physical or learning disability or sensory impairment, encouraging them to move and swim through the water with the assistance of a qualified teacher.
These 30 minute lessons are based on individual children working to their own abilities, in
groups of 4 to 6, with 2 teachers and are based around the children having fun whilst
learning to swim at the same time.
These lessons run on a 10 week payment plan and countdown reminders for automatic renewals are sent out to customers to remind them to renew. Direct Debit is now a payment option and this is an easier, cheaper and hassle free method to pay for your lessons.
Individual lessons can be on a 1 to 1 or a 1 to 2 basis. For individual tuition to teach or improve your swimming technique, we offer half hour lessons for 3 years and above (no age limit) including adults. These lessons will develop skills and confidence and focus on specific areas for improvement.
Swimming sessions for Parent/Carer and child
Little Splashers is an introduction to swimming and water confidence class aimed at the under 3s. It allows babies and toddlers to experience and become familiar with the swimming pool in a fun and safe environment, whilst learning the basics of water movements through guided play. It provides children with skills that will enable them to learn faster when they enter the Learn to Swim Scheme at age 3yrs, and helps parent/carers to understand teaching methods and encourage practice out with lessons.
It also helps the parent/carers to be comfortable and confident in the way of holding their younger babies in the water.
Teaching your baby how to be comfortable and enjoy the pool at a young age lays the foundation for a growing confidence. Many life-enhancing water safety skills for babies come from being comfortable and enjoying their time in the pool.
Little Splashers Timetable:
|Eastwood High Sports Centre||Saturday||Little Splashers||11.30am – 12.15pm|
|Neilston Leisure Centre||Monday||Little Splashers||10.15am – 11am|
