General Info

Swim Australia Registered Swim School

SWIM CLASSES
We operate on a maximum of three (3) children per learn to swim class with only one (1) swim class in the pool at a time. With the observation area separate to the pool deck your child will benefit with more attention and a private, less distracting learn to swim environment.

SWIMMING LESSON MAKE UP SYSTEM
Free make up system
You can take your child out of their 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 that 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.

Heated pool
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.

Magnapool - The Miracle!

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.
