Welcome to Active Stirling’s Learn to swim programme!

We have swim lessons available for children and adults from 6 months - 16 years+ at various venues across Stirling –

We follow Scottish Swimming’s National Framework for swimming in Scotland which provides a clear set of national standards and pathway and allows you to follow your child’s swimming progress.


Encouraging your child to swim at such a young age will give them one of the most important life skills you can give them.  Our Learn to swim programme will teach your child the core swimming skills such as breathing, submerging and moving around in the water.  Watch your child grow as they become confident in the water, playing games and having fun.
- Each class is 30 minutes

Once your child has completed swim skills 1-4 they can move onto our club ready swim pathway or join our rookie lifeguard lessons.
-Each class is 40 minutes

Our adult learn to swim programme will help you become more confident in the water. You will learn the basic swimming strokes and enjoy being active in the water. Swimming will make a difference to your health and make you feel great –it’s a low-impact activity and is the safest and most effective form of exercise to do which is great for the body and mind.
