West Lothian Leisure Xcite reached the final 3 shortlisted by Scottish Swimming for the Learn to Swim Provider of the Year Award 2018!

The prestigious industry award considers all providers across the whole of Scotland and the West Lothian sports and culture charity trust made the final against the strong competition! The programme we deliver, provides swimming tuition by fully qualified swim teachers for all abilities, from birth to adults. Lessons start from Adult & Baby, all the way through to Pre-Club and Adult Swimming and is available at Xcite venues in Armadale, Bathgate, Broxburn, Livingston, Linlithgow and Whitburn.

Robin Strang, Chief Executive of WLL Xcite said “I’m delighted that our swim teams have been shortlisted for the award. It’s fantastic recognition of all the hard work that has gone into improving and delivering the programme. I’d like to thank all our dedicated Swim Team for making it happen, from Swim Teachers to those behind the scenes and all our swimmers who take part in our programme throughout West Lothian. We continue to be committed to delivering quality programming and facilities to the community and improving their health and wellbeing.”

Through their partnership work with Scottish Swimming elite swimmer Duncan Scott visited Xcite Bathgate last year and has since gone on to win gold at the Commonwealth Game and European Championships. Duncan was recently awarded 2018 Scottish Sportsperson of the Year and is as well as the National Lottery’s Athlete of the year 2018.

WLL Xcite also provides facilities for local swim clubs with a natural progression path from their Learn to Swim programme. Mr Strang said, “We believe our partnership work continues to enable us to teach and inspire young swimmers and provide local access to swimming pools across West Lothian.”

Sharon MacDonald, Scottish Swimming Director of Development said "It is great to see the good work aquatic providers are doing across Scotland to deliver our National Framework for Learn to Swim in partnership with Scottish Water. West Lothian Leisure Xcite has a well-established programme centred around a high quality learn to swim environment which is helping to develop confident, competent and safe swimmers from birth through to the club-ready stage."

Giving your child the opportunity to learn to swim is one of the best gifts you’ll ever give them and one they will absolutely love. Read more about the programme here.
