Have school swim lessons returned?

Have school swim lessons returned?

We are continuing to introduce changes in a considered way to our venues now that we are 'beyond level 0'. As part of this work we are delighted to be welcoming our local schools back into the pool again for their school swim lessons. Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and many have been unable to access pools for over 18 months. School lessons provide an important route enabling many children to learn to swim and improve their confidence in the water.

We will be running lane swimming alongside the school lessons at the pools/times below. The safety of all our customers and staff continues to be our main priority and we continue to monitor our operating arrangements going forward.

Glenogle Swim Centre Tuesdays and Wednesdays 9.00am – 12.00pm

Gracemount Leisure Centre Thursdays 9.00am – 3.00pm

Portobello Swim Centre Mondays 9.00am – 3.00pm

Dalry Swim Centre Thursdays 9.00am – 3.00pm

Drumbrae Swim Centre Tuesdays 9.00am – 3.00pm

Thursdays 9.00am – 12.30pm
