Aquatics Aberdeen is committed to providing swimming tuition for all ages from birth to adults in Aberdeen's citywide Learn to Swim Scheme.

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 programme follows the new Scottish Swimming Framework which enables your child to:

  • Work through exciting and progressive stages
  • Receive Scottish Swimming Awards Scheme Certificates
  • Take part in swimming lessons recognised by the Scottish National Body for swimming
  • Continue to develop the confidence that learning to swim can bring

  • Develop safe, effective and child friendly environments, based on good practice
