Borders Disability Swimming Development Day

Live Borders are hosting their 2nd Disability Swimming Development Day in partnership with Scottish Swimming and Scottish Disability Sport. The aim of the day is to promote swimming opportunities available in the Scottish Borders.

Last year was a massive success, as swimmers who attended facilitated the establishment of the Barracudas Development Squad, who are now training regularly and competing in disability specific swimming meets.

The day is open to anyone with a physical disability, learning disability or sensory impairment who is interested in getting involved and learning more about the sport.

Swimmers will have the opportunity to participate in various coached lead sessions under the guidance of our qualified teachers and coaches who have experience in this area.

This is the ideal opportunity to gather information about our comprehensive swimming pathway and the options available from Learn to swim to our regional disability squad – Border Barracudas.

All children and adults will be individually assessed and will go through a short teaching lesson. On conclusion of the day, teachers will provide an evaluation of their session and state which programme and level is best for their child.
