Buderim Swim School
Approved Covid 19 safe plan active
Welcome to Shaplands Buderim, where we believe you will find the perfect swimming environment for your child or yourself here on the Sunshine Coast! Owners Laura and Iain are in their fourth year of owning the business after being involved with swim coaching for the past ten years. Here at the Shapland Pool in Buderim we have made several improvements whilst upholding the high standard of swim coaching laid out by Chris Shapland and the franchise for the past 30 years.
We have installed an AOP Secondary Disinfectant System that is state of the art and fresh to the market. It combines Ozone and Ultra Violet light to clean the water 24 hours a day. The effect is a sparkling pool with incredible low levels of irritants that you find in normal pools. This combined with the Magnapool system that all Shaplands use gives you the softest, cleanest pool available.
We have also added a new modern heater that is keeping the pool super cosy at 32 degrees even in the winter! The perfect conditions for Mums and Babies!
You can also now book a ONE to ONE session with one of our experienced coaches if you feel your child or yourself require some personal attention.
As has always been the case here at Shapland Buderim we have the unique situation of only having ONE CLASS at a time in our 12m pool and we limit the the class size to a maximum of 3. This is a fabulous environment for learning for everyone! The individual attention and actual swim time the children receive is maximised.
Our friendly owners Iain and Laura, along with all our swimming teachers, Evie, Rhoda, Jane and Iain are committed to making you and your child's learn to swim experience the best one possible. We take pride in the experience and the results we deliver.
All our instructors are industry qualified e.g. (AUSTSWIM SwimEd) and Blue Card holders. The facility is an Australian Swim Schools Association registered facility.

SWIMMING LESSON MAKE UP SYSTEM
Free make up system
You can take your child out of their class, and receive a make up class, provided it is done any time before 8am on the day of their lesson, this can be done through the My SSS system online, emailing or phoning the swim school. If you have taken your child out using the My SSS system you do not need to contact the swim school. This will then entitles you to a make-up lesson. History has shown us that the most effective way to organize your child's make up swimming lesson is to use the My SSS system or you can call the swim school on the morning you require the make-up. Over the years we have found that once you break your child's swimming lesson routine (come at a different day and time for a make up lesson) it is very easy to forget the make up swimming lessons time and day. It is swim school policy not to give out make up lessons more than one day in advance, the swim school relies on you to phone on the day you can attend a make up lesson for your child, or use the My SSS to book one yourself.
Water temperature of 32 degrees Celsius (all year round) is crucial for your child's comfort. Normally children have a low percentage body fat and if the water is below 32 degrees Celsius then they start to feel the cold. Any parents who are in the water with their child will understand how important it is to feel comfortable in that environment.

Iain (Owner and Director of Shapland Buderim)
Iain qualified as a swim teacher in Australia with the Austswim program and has been working as a full time swim coach for the last 10 years. He loves the sport passionately and is driven to nurture every childs natural ability as a swimmer.
Iain is fascinated by the learning process and has spent his time studying the way in which people learn and how to apply that to swimming. His approach is different to most traditional swim coaching but in line with the Shapland Swim School model and this was a decisive factor in choosing the SSS franchise.
He is very excited about combining his own experience with Chris Shapland and to continue building new and innovative ways to coach simply and effectively.
