Swimming is one of the best loved family activities throughout the UK and many children say it is their favourite family pastime. Learning to swim is an important milestone in a child’s life and one that they should absolutely love. If your child learns to love the water from a young age, it will help provide you with peace of mind that they are safe and make them aware of the dangers. It can open up exciting opportunities too… water activities on holiday, having fun at pool parties or perhaps even an Olympian in the making!

At Xcite our Swim Teachers create a fun-filled adventure which is motivating and encouraging every step of the way. We are passionate about teaching an essential life skill – how to swim. Our Learn 2 Swim programme is affiliated with Scottish Swimming and helps develop core aquatic skills before moving on to developing techniques and other competences. There are a number of levels your child can progress through so they can reach their full potential from baby, pre-school to rookie lifeguard, club ready with procession on to local swim clubs. We also offer online updates so you can track your child’s progress through each lesson!

It’s never too late to learn!

Our Adult Lessons introduce a range of aquatic skills and stroke techniques to help you achieve your goals. It’s perfect for those who are looking to get involved in swimming for the first time or just want to build confidence around water. Swimming can help both mentally and physically as it has been proven it increases overall general wellbeing.
