Welcome to coaching at Edinburgh Leisure
We are now open!
We are delighted to welcome you back through our doors and to get back to helping Edinburgh keep active and well - always. We're very grateful for all the support we have received throughout lockdown and can’t wait to see you again soon in our venues.
Everything you need to know about our classes
On our class timetable you can check spaces, request to book a space, here's how:
- Check which class would be right for you or your child using the 'our classes' button below.
- Check where and when your class will be on when we reopen and whether it has spaces using the 'Class timetable and availability' button below.
- If there are spaces, you can complete a 'Booking Request Form'. Your space is not guaranteed at his stage. We will check and get back to you to confirm we have held a space and what the next steps are. Your space is guaranteed once we have your Direct Debit instruction and we have emailed confirmation to you. We will not collect any Direct Debits until we can run our classes. Normally we collect Direct Debits on or around the 1st of each month. The monthly amount is calculated over 11 months with no Direct Debit being collected in July of each year.
Please bear with us we may take longer than usual to get back to you at this time.
PLEASE NOTE that booking forms are NOT currently available on the timetable for certain classes. We are carrying out our annual 'summer movers' task to transfer customers leaving the pre-school programme into the next Entry Level class for their sport. During this time we are unable to process any new booking requests for any Entry Level class, any Gymnastics class (please note gym Nippers and Jump Nippers are still bookable) or any class at the Royal Commonwealth Pool. Therefore booking forms will NOT be available on the timetable below for these classes. We aim to have these booking forms back on the timetable by 21st June so please keep checking.
Summer holiday camps, coaching and family fun
We are really looking forward to bringing the summer fun (safely) back to our centres across the City this year.
Whether you're looking for:
- a sports camp for a week (Aqua, Gymnastics or Climbing)
- a one off activity for the family to enjoy, like Aquadash, Family Climb or Clip n Climb
- or sports lessons in 10 different sports.
Coaching safety measures
As with all our other activities in our venues, we've introduced a number of measures to ensure everyone's safety. We'll continue to review these measures over the coming months as the environment and guidelines from the Scottish Government and national sports governing bodies change.
It is very important that you read our safety guidelines below before attending any class. These include where to drop off and pick up children at each of our venues and much more essential information to help everyone have an enjoyable and safe Edinburgh Leisure experience.
Our sports classes
Develop your technique and improve through experience by joining one of the badminton clubs that play regularly at our venues, giving players of all ages and abilities the chance to learn or compete.
Boccia is a target ball sport similar to bowls. Our boccia session is open to both adults and young people with sensory, physical and learning disabilities.
We have indoor climbing courses for all levels of experience, from taster courses to dry tooling and lead climbing. We can take you outside to some of the best mountains in Scotland. We can even help you make a career out of climbing.
DanceDance classes can help sustain a young child's enthusiasm for movement and music. From ballet, highland dance to hip-hop and cheerleading, we have coaching to fit P1 to P7s.
Practice twists and turns with trampolines and harnesses in the Dry Dive area before taking to the big boards. We follow the National Diving Award Scheme with classes for all levels.
Starting from the age of 3 to P7 children in our classes will develop confidence, spatial awareness and teamwork. As they progress they'll put their skills, tactics and knowledge into practice playing the game they enjoy.
Developing skills for life in strength, coordination, self confidence and body awareness. Gymnastics General teaches the basics of floor and vaulting skills from 5 years upwards before progressing to a higher class.
Our Gym Nippers classes help to develop motor skills, balance and agility. Progress within these classes will be monitored against the Edinburgh Leisure class competencies and you can keep a track by signing up to our home portal.
JudoOur full contact judo courses progress through a grading system and involve throwing and holding movements promoting coordination, flexibility, balance, strength and endurance, teaching children self-discipline.
From toddlers to older adults, we aim to improve confidence in and out of the water, with an emphasis on fun and progression. Our swim teachers are fully accredited and follow Scottish Swimming Learn to Swim Programme.
We can get you or your kids on the way to serving up aces through our extensive junior and adult coaching programme, running according to age and ability.
TrampoliningFor children who like to be airborne. Trampolining delivers balance, coordination, cardio fitness and self-confidence. Toddlers and bouncing are a natural combination so courses start at pre-school age.
