Scorpion Swim Team is a small competitive swimming club founded in 2007 based in Edinburgh and Midlothian and we are fully affiliated to the Scottish Amateur Swimming Association (SASA).
Our Head Coach is a fully qualified teacher and our assistant coach has a level 2 teaching qualification and is continually learning through mentoring from various different areas.
The Team Name ‘Scorpions’
The team was named ‘Scorpions’ for several reasons and various individuals have asked why we chose a non-swimming animal. The beauty of this is that we as a coaching team believe that anyone can be taught to swim and compete at various levels. In addition the founding members chose a menacing Scorpion, and it looks brilliant as a white logo against the black on the team caps.
