Booking your class
Update 30 September 2021
Our classes have now started back and all customers who attended classes since May 2021 will have been notified via email with a link to the booking form. If you have not received this please contact us on the email address or phone number shown at the bottom of this page
For new customers looking to join dryside activities please contact us on the email address or phone number shown at the bottom of this page. For further information on swimming please select the ‘Learn to Swim’ banner below. Swimming cannot accept any new bookings at this time.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you back at our classes!
How to book your class
Booking for classes starting from September will be done by completion of a web form asking for you and your child’s details. We will have most of your child’s details already but this process ensures our records are up to date. We need your details as you will be the payer for the class and also if you have more than one child attending classes we’ll be able to link you all up together.
This information has now been sent to all those who attended dryside activities from May to June with swimming being sent separately. Please ensure you complete the form correctly, however we might need to call you to check the information, if we do you’ll notice it’s an 0300 number so please do not dismiss this as a marketing call. We shall always leave a message where possible.
We hope to increase both the number of classes we can offer and also the number of children that can attend each class as restrictions ease although we will still have limited numbers. If you wish to book a class you can contact us on:
Football – firstname.lastname@example.org
Gymnastics – email@example.com
Multi Sports – firstname.lastname@example.org (netball, athletics, badminton)
Swimming – email@example.com
We’ll be running classes each week throughout the school term. There will be a maximum of 40 weeks of classes per year. We’ll have a break at Christmas, Easter, Summer and one week in October. Your DD payment is based on 38 weeks of classes with up to 2 weeks free as long as we do not have to cancel your class for any reason. Sample planners for 2021 and 2022 are available within the documents section of the page.
Timetables per centre
We’re moving to Direct Debit payments. So we’ll require you to complete a DD mandate with your bank account details. This will be part of the web form.
Payments will be taken on either the 5th or 20th of the month. If you already have an EDLC DD membership this means you’ll be able to pick the same collection date for all EDLC payments.
Your details will be checked to ensure it’s your account and that it’s valid for DD collections. Again, if we have any questions we’ll give you a call.
As we are running for up to a maximum of 40 weeks, we’ll only collect payments for 10 months of the year. No payment will be collected in July or January. In the unfortunate event that we have to cancel more than 2 weeks classes out of the year, we’ll simply reduce your next DD payment to reflect the missed class.
Remember that once you’re booked onto a class, you won’t need to rebook and pay every 4 months. Your DD will continue as long as your child stays in the class.
- Learn to Swim £20 per month
- Football, gymnastics or multi-sport (45-60 minute classes) £19 per month
- Football, gymnastics or multi-sport (90 minute classes) £23 per month
Concession rates are available where appropriate at a 35% discount for all 3 categories above. The concession criteria is available here in the Concession section Membership options | EDLC
A sibling discount of 10% is available where you have more than one child attending football, gymnastics or multi-sport classes (not available on Learn to Swim membership). The first child pays full price, the others pay 10% less.
A second sport discount of 10% is also available for football gymnastics or multi-sport classes where your child is paying for their first sport
Please note you will only have this discount applied once, so if one of your family receives the sibling discount, there is no further discount for a second sport.
Learn to swim
Our Learn to Swim programme has changed – We have moved to the National Framework for Swimming in Scotland, so there are changes for those in levels 1 - 8. There shall be fewer levels and the learning outcomes, now called ‘exit criteria’, are significantly different. In addition to the changes in the framework, the way you book and pay will also be different as we move to a Direct Debit payment system.
We will no longer be running terms and classes will run continuously across the year with the exception of school holidays. A full list of term dates can be found here https://www.edlc.co.uk/sport-leisure/swimming
Swimmers shall now move up an age group or move to a higher level when they are ready and you will be advised how to do this via email and changes can be made by yourself on our Home Portal. Please note that we expect this function to be available from January 2022.
Further updates will be made here or communicated directly in due course.
