Performance swimming programme
We're proud to support performance swimming in Scotland and run a high performance programme based at the National Swimming Academy. Our facilities include a six lane 50m swimming pool which can be split into two 25m pools, high performance preparation room, state-of-the-art sports science laboratories, and strength and conditioning suites.
The University is also investing £20m in redeveloping our sports facilities which will include a new state-of-the-art high performance strength and conditioning suite connected directly to the swimming pool.
