Encouraging your child to learn to swim is one of most important opportunities you can give them.
If you get children interested in swimming when they're young as there is a good chance they will enjoy the water for the rest of their life.
All our swimming lessons follow Scottish Swimiming's National Framework for Scotland. Within the framework there are three programmes: Early Years, Learn to Swim and Adults.
Swimming lessons are available in all 9 of our swimming pools.

We've all seen the news reports and nature programmes highlighting the amount of plastic waste which ends up in the ocean.
We would like to do our bit to help and have decided to stop the use of blue pool shoes as well as other single use plastics such as cups and straws.
From what date will you stop providing blue pool shoes?
From TBC there will no longer be blue pool shoes available in our centres.
What should people do instead of using blue pool shoes?
In order to maintain cleanliness, you will be asked to change from outdoor footwear into indoor alternatives such as flip-flops or sandals. You will be asked to do this within the "Change area for no outdoor shoe zone. No Outdoor Shoe Zone".
Where are the "No Outdoor Shoe Zones"?
The "No Outdoor Shoe Zones" are within or near our swimming pool changing areas and are clearly marked with new signage that says "No Outdoor Shoe Zone". Please ask reception or a member of our team if you have any queries.
What does the "No Outdoor Shoe Zone" mean?
It means that all outdoor footwear should be removed before entering the "No Outdoor Shoe Zone". Instead, you are welcome to change into indoor alternatives such as flip-flops or sandals. The new policy applies to customers and FSLT staff.
Where can I change my shoes?
You can change your shoes at the designated zone near to or within our swimming pool changing areas. We have updated these areas with new seating and additional space where needed.
What if I/someone with me has additional needs?
We've made every effort at each centre to adapt changing facilities for any additional needs or special circumstances. Please let our staff know if you have any concerns and they will be happy to answer questions or arrange additional help.
What if I forget to bring a spare pair of indoor shoes/sandals?
In this instance we would advise customers to enter the "No Outdoor Shoe Zone" with bare feet if possible.
Is there somewhere I can leave my outdoor footwear?
We operate a secure locker system that requires either a £1 coin to use. You will receive your coin back when you collect your items afterwards. Alternatively you can carry them with you in the bag you used to bring your change of footwear.
Accidents do happen
Sometimes people have 'accidents' in the swimming pools. This can include babies with poorly fitting nappies, excitable children who can't wait to get to the toilet people who feel unwell and those in care of others.
Most of the time there will be nothing in the water which the chlorine can't deal with. There is a possibility that someone who has been unwell, including upset stomachs or diarrhoea, could bring in a bug called cryptosporidium.
