Why are you changing some swim lesson times?

Why are you changing some swim lesson times?

When our swim lessons returned in November 2020 we were only able to have space for 50% of the children and adults that were learning to swim with us pre-COVID. Learning to swim is a key skill  and we've been working hard to see how we can safely increase the number of spaces in our programme across the city. 

We have managed to make changes to our swim lesson programme that will increase the number of children and adults who can learn to swim with us (though not yet up to our pre-COVID levels).  This does mean that there are some small changes to the timings of some of our classes, though many are remaining at the same time. For example there are no changes to class times at Portobello Swim Centre, Leith Victoria Swim Centre or our lessons currently running at Currie Community High School.

To enable us to make these changes to our systems we have had to  temporarily disable the ability for customers to move swim class on our Coaching Home Portal. You will be able to do this again from Monday 27th September.

We have emailed all affected customers directly. If you don’t think you’ve received an email please check your spam or quarantine folders.  If you have any issues with the times of lessons quoted on the email please email your venue’s coaching email address below:
