COVID-19: Swim Lesson


We're dealing with a huge number of enquiries regarding swimming lessons.
Our Perth Leisure Pool Pre-School Swimming Lesson Waiting List Application Form is now open. If you are thinkning about, or have completed the form, we understand that you may have some questions. We hope we have answered them below.

What happens next? 

Once your child has been placed on the system you will receive an email to confirm they are in the waiting list.

My child has now moved up to Primary 

Pre-school children who were signed up with a direct debit prior to COVID and are now going to school will be offered an after-school space.

I was already on the waiting list, do I need to reapply? 

We will be contacting children who were on the waiting list prior to COVID in the order they were added, there is no requirement to reapply if your child was previously on a waiting list.

Are 1-1 lessons available? 

1-1 and after school waiting lists for all levels are still closed and will be reviewed when Perth leisure Pool opens

My child has been moved to another venue, will they go back to Perth Leisure Pool?

Children who were relocated to other live active sites will be contacted to return to Perth Leisure pool.

Please Note: We do not currently have an opening date yet for Perth Leisure Pool, but we are working in the background to ensure we are ready to go when we are able to reopen.


Waiting lists for new enquiries for other venues are currently closed, and due to the number of enquiries we're dealing with with, we're unable to respond to individual enquiries.
Any updates to swimming lesson availability will be shared on our website and social media pages.

In partnership with Scottish Swimming, we’ve implemented some new procedures and ask you read these before your child returns to Swimming Lessons. 

• Please do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes before your lesson start time. 

• Children should arrive swim ready, with swimwear underneath their clothes, to reduce time in our changing areas. 

• There will be designated points where you drop off and collect your child from their swim teacher in each venue.  

• Whilst our showers are open, we ask, where possible that children shower at home after their lesson.

• We have one-way systems in our changing rooms and around our venues which we ask all customers to adhere to. 

• Class times are staggered by 15 minutes to allow for additional cleaning and to ensure the area is clear before the next class participants enter. 

• We’ve reduced the numbers in classes to allow everyone to adhere to social distancing. 

• Spectating is currently only available for Pre School children attending Live Active Loch Leven for Swimming Lessons. 

In addition, we ask all customers to read through our Customer Guide and Scottish Swimming Guide for additional information on what is required when using our venues.
