Learn to Swim

The Brechin Beavers Learn to Swim Programme is based on the Scottish Swimming Learn to Swim syllabus and award scheme, and is designed for children from the age of 5 years.

With the emphasis on building confidence and enjoyment, children learn the fundamental skills for water safety and for developing a wide range of aquatic skills alongside the four main swimming strokes.

Each child is placed in an appropriate level according to experience and ability, and will progress at his or her own rate through Scottish Swimmings Swimming Framework.  These are Swim Skills level 1-4, Learn to Train and Train to Train

Children who have completed Swim Skills level 4 will be invited to join the Development Squads in the club, which start them on the competitive pathway (there may be restrictions due to the number of places available).  Not all children wish to proceed to competitive swimming; the aim of the programme is make swimming fun, develop safety and competency in the water, and provide the foundation for a lifetime involvement in aquatics.
