1 - After reviewing our LTS syllabus, we have improved it, so you may notice some changes. The new criteria will be phased in, starting with the current SS4 and CR classes this week. They are now Aqua Skills 4 & Aqua Skills 5. Please wait a couple of weeks before making any enquiries about progress because when the new criteria are added, the % reverts to zero until the swimmer is assessed.
2 - UNFORTUNETLY, WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING NAMES OF NEW SWIMMERS FOR LTS, UNLESS THEY ALREADY HAVE SIBLINGS IN THE LTS SCHEME OR ARE STUDENTS AT ISA. OUR WAITING LISTS ARE ALL VERY FULL. WE WILL PUT UP ANOTHER NOTICE WHEN THE WAITING LISTS OPENS UP AGAIN

We love swimming
Aberdeen LTS is linked to Aberdeen Amateur Swimming Club, providing a pathway through from non-swimmers to international level swimmers. Swimmers can join when they are 4 years old and there are swimmers in Masters who are old enough to be grandparents! Swimming is fun and swimming is for all! Swimmers move through the 6 levels of the LTS scheme seamlessly, as they achieve the skills required at each level.
Our swimmers benefit from:
“Both of our children have made tremendous progress with their swimming which is good news considering we're moving to the Netherlands where there is plenty of open water!”
“I also just wanted to say how impressed we've been with the swimming lessons he's received with you guys. I feel he's come on in leaps and bounds so many thanks to everyone involved.”
“It's a pleasure - we think the club is great! I still have two kids with you and another who I hope will join when he is old enough!”
“We would like to thank you for all of the support and tuition provided to both of our children over the years. They are both now confident swimmers!”
“Cheers and if you could pass on a big thank you to everyone who taught my son. It's a great place to learn to swim and he's so confident in the water now, it's sometimes scary!:)”
“This is just a huge thank you to you and the rest of the team for lessons on Saturday. My daughter had a brilliant time, and everyone made it really enjoyable for her. Seeing the size of the operation you have on the go there, you certainly have your hands full! Thanks again”
“Work is taking us to Baku for a couple of years and I think the most difficult part of leaving Aberdeen will be saying goodbye to wonderful swimming lessons you have provided the kids, we couldn’t appreciate your team of teachers and organisers more. A massive thank you for all you’ve done for us. Hopefully we’ll be back to Aberdeen in a couple of years and will be looking for a spot on your waiting list then 🙂 ”
“Shona, thank you to yourself, Alison, Trish and all the fabulous coaches/swim teachers Matthew has had along the way at Aberdeen LTS, it was a pleasure watching him develop and progress through the stages.”

This means children who are involved in Children's University in and around Aberdeen will now be able to find your activity when they search on Aspire. They'll unlock CU Scotland credits and skills points for taking part. You can find out more about CU Scotland on our website: www.childrensuniversity.scot
We're looking to expand our inclusion swimming program. Click on link to find out how to partner and support this initiative.
We have over 1200 swimmers associated with our swimming club and are keen to develop partnerships with companies.
Our first class reputation means the world to us, spread the word and earn yourself a FREE lesson. It's simple, recommend a friend and ask them to let us know that they were recommended by you. Once your friend has signed up and paid for their first block of lessons, your account will be credited with the value of one lesson. And the great news is you can recommend as many friends as you like.
If you have a child with a physical disability or if you have a child who requires assistance when learning, Email us and we will arrange a meeting with the teachers involved, who will explain the pathway available.
