As the temperature rises, Fife’s youngsters are being offered an unbeatable offer to cool down with free swimming across the region.
We are making available our Splash-out-for-Nowt scheme thanks to extra funding from Fife Council. The offer gives juniors, aged 17 and under, the opportunity to swim for free in the school summer holidays, Monday to Friday 9.00am to 1.00pm.
We are also offering Quid-a-Kid Swimming, Monday to Friday from 1.00pm to 5.00pm, with Quid-a-Kid Racquet Sports and Quid-a-Kid Football, weekdays from 10.00am to 5.00pm and weekends from 9.00am to 5.00pm.
The family-popular schemes are available in all our facilities across the region and are designed to get more young people active more of the time.
In addition, we’re running a range of kids’ camps and programmes to keep youngsters active during the holidays – participants can enjoy a range of sports in and out of the water.
Ed Watson, Chief Executive of Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We are very pleased to be in a position to be able to maintain Splash-out-for-Nowt and Quid-a-Kid – initiatives which are at the heart of the organisation’s drive to engage more young people with physical activity at an early age to encourage a lifelong interest in staying active.
“We would encourage as many young people and families to visit the trust’s facilities during the summer holidays to experience the choice and quality of programmes and facilities on offer.”
Cllr Judy Hamilton, Convener of the Council's Community & Housing Services Committee added: "We're pleased to be supporting this very worthwhile initiative again this year.
"Financial pressures on families are often felt more during the school holidays. Free and heavily discounted activities like these are a great opportunity for all children and young people to get out and have fun as well as being active."
