Programme Breakdown

Our Adult Learn to Swim programme follows the Scottish Swimming Adult Learn to Swim pathway and caters for all levels of ability, from complete beginners to those who are looking to improve their confidence or develop their technique.

Experienced coaches provide opportunities for all adults to participate in swimming at whatever level they aspire to. This programme is open to anyone 16 years of age or older.

The programme is broken into the following stages:

  • Beginners
  • Advanced Beginners
  • Improvers
  • Skills & Drills


This stage is primarily focused on water confidence and developing core aquatic skills, including aquatic breathing, independent movement, balance and buoyancy, through a variety of activities.

Our experienced teachers will work with each individual, adjusting to their confidence levels, and establishing the basic fundamentals of swimming and the introduction of early stroke technique practises.

Floatation skills and confidence underwater are reinforced and progressed within this level along with new core aquatic skills being introduced.

  • Adults returning to swimming who would like some technical and training guidance
  • Individuals who are training for water events such as triathlons, open water swimming or masters events and require improvements to technique and other skills
