Aquatics Aberdeen is Sport Aberdeen’s learn to swim programme.

The swim scheme's major aim is to teach children and adults to swim safely and provide them with the opportunity to participate in an enjoyable activity which can be pursued at all levels and throughout one's life.

The backbone of the Learn to Swim Programme is the structured progression that is possible for every swimmer. This leads every swimmer from the basic skills of water familiarisation, orientation and propulsion all the way through to water competence, specialisation and technical efficiency. This competence will ensure that pupils can take part in many water based activities in the future.

Aquatics Aberdeen currently runs lessons at the following pools;

  • Beach Leisure Centre
  • Bridge of Don Swimming Pool
  • Bucksburn Swimming Pool
  • Cults Sports Centre and Swimming Pool
  • Dyce Primary Swimming Pool
  • Dyce Academy Swimming Pool
  • Aberdeen Grammar Pool
  • Hazlehead Swimming Pool
  • Hazlewood Pool
  • Kincorth Swimming Pool
  • Northfield Swimming Pool
