Four age-groups available:

Preschool programs run from 3 to 6 years.
This is the foundation phase, as young swimmers develop water awareness, confidence and independence in a class without a parent. They will progress through basic floating and recovery in the Minnows group to being able to swim 10 metres of freestyle in Orca. They will also learn a variety of basic rescues and water safety sequences.
School age programs run from 7 to 15 years.
RLSS Swim and Survive levels 1 - 14.
All our school-age lessons follow the Royal Lifesaving Society’s swimming program. Swimmers will progress through the levels from beginners, to becoming competent and safe swimmers. Once they have mastered their swimming strokes they will work on more complex rescue skills and initiatives that can lead to them becoming safer around water.
Adult programs are for those who are 16 year and older.
Do you feel you are missing on family fun at the beach or pool because you have never had the opportunity to learn how to swim? Our classes start from beginners and go through to squad swimmers.

- Adult 3 - Can swim up to 25 metres of each stroke

At Stirling Leisure Centres we believe that everyone should have access to swimming lessons regardless of their ability.
Contact our Learn-To-Swim Team on firstname.lastname@example.org to fill in a special needs questionnaire form. From there we will work with the parents and swimmers to arrange the right teacher, time and day for swimming lessons. Special needs lessons are available by appointment only and are not offered at Scarborough Beach Pool.
