New National Swimming Framework for Scotland

Scottish Swimming is inviting Local Authorities to hear about the new National Swimming Framework for Scotland.

After significant consultation with a number of key partners including local authorities, swimming teachers and coaches we have developed a National Swimming Framework. This framework provides an all-inclusive pathway providing opportunities for everyone to participate in any aquatic discipline they choose at whatever level they aspire to. It is supported by a quality education programme and provides support to maximise pool space ensuring an aquatic programme for all ages and abilities. We would like to take this opportunity to present the National Swimming Framework to you.
