There’s nothing better than a summer splash!

That’s why we’ve created an awesome challenge to encourage young people to keep active in our pools and try something different. 

Our children's passport lists 21 fun activities to do in the water. Complete 7 activities and your child receives a certificate plus you have the option to enter a draw to win a month's free swimming at Edinburgh Leisure.

How can I get involved?

Pick up a passport at any of our pools.  Take the passport with you when you and/or your child visits us and if they do any of the activities listed they can ask one of the Edinburgh Leisure team to sign their passport. 

You can write in any water-based activity that we’ve missed from the list or something they’ve repeated at the bottom of the table.

The passport will run from 30 June – 13 August.

Summer Pool Timetables

Our summer pool timetables will be online here w/c 25th June so you can see what is on where all through the summer.

How much does it cost?

Costs of the activities will vary. Have a look at the venue pages or contact our centres if you want to find out more.

How do I get the certificate?

Once there’s 7 signatures on the passport you can hand it in at any of our pools and collect your certificate. And if you’d like – you can pick up another passport! If you choose to do so, the passport can then be entered into a prizedraw* to win a free family swim for the month of October. See terms and conditions below.
