A lifelong skill


Being able to swim is a lifelong skill that everyone should learn. Live Borders teach thousands of people to swim every year through our Learn 2 Swim programme where we follow the Scottish Swimming framework. With six venues to choose from you will be spoilt for choice.

From birth to adults, Live Borders has it covered. Swimming is a great way to keep active, if you want to tone-up and burn calories or perhaps you just want to relax and unwind.

B.E.S.T performance programme

The B.E.S.T Management Group is proud to deliver the B.E.S.T. Performance Programme in partnership with Scottish Swimming, Live Borders and a range of local clubs – Galashiels, Hawick and Teviotdale, Kelso and Peebles.

The programme was established:

– To provide additional training for more advanced, committed Borders swimmers in order to keep them training and competing for the Borders
– To generally help improve the performance standards of Borders swimming
– To help with the on-going education and development of coaches and clubs.

Coach education

Live Borders provides coach education courses from participation to club level. No matter what level of the sport you are involved at, we can help to improve your knowledge and share best practice.
