Get in the Swim

In September 2017, we’re going to launch the new Scottish Swimming Learn to Swim framework which provides a clear set of national standards, as well as a pathway which allows you to follow how your child is progressing.

In addition we are changing the way in which we do things, for the better:

  • More Lessons
    From September 2017, we're introducing a rolling programme offering lessons up to 48 weeks of the year.
  • Smoother Transitions
    Participants will be able to move to the next level when they are ready and a space is available instead of waiting until the end of the next block. 
  • No more queues
    Following initial sign-up we're getting rid of the rebooking queuing system – completely! 
  • Easier Payments
    We're moving to easy, manageable monthly direct debit payments.
  • Fixed Price until 2019
    We are freezing the direct debit price for the next 18 months. 
  • Free Swims
    All lesson participants will be able to enjoy Free Swims at all East Lothian Swimming Pools, all year round. 

Membership Scheme

£17.50 per month*

Each swimming lesson participant will be enrolled into our Get in the Swim Membership Scheme which provides: 

  • Weekly swimming lessons for a min of 45 weeks per year
  • FREE Swims during public opening hours at East Lothian
    pools, all year round 
  • FREE Get in the Swim membership card 
  • FREE Get in the Swim bag 

*Access to Leisure Customers are entitled to a 50% discount on the standard monthly membership fee of £17.50 per month. However should the Access to Leisure subscription expire / terminate the direct debit payment will automatically increase to the standard amount. Further Terms & Conditions Apply. 

Swim Assessments

We ask all children aged 5+ years looking to join our swimming lesson programme to attend a swim assessment, so we can determine which level of our SwimSkills programme they should be place into.

Following the Swim Assessment, the teacher will inform you of their allocated level and current availability.  If a space is available, you can sign up to the membership scheme and your child's space will be confirmed.  (Please see membership sign up procedures below).

If no spaces are available at your preferred time / location, your child's details will be passed onto our swimming development team who will alert you when a space becomes available.

 

Application Process

Applications to join the Get in the Swim Membership Scheme should be made at your preferred Sports Centre. 

ID VERIFICATION
To comply with banking regulations, and to protect customers from fraud and identity theft, all direct debit membership applications are subject to ID verification checks.

Please bring the following forms of ID to complete your application:

  • 1 form of photographic ID
  • 1 form of proof of address
  • 1 form of proof of bank account ownership.
