Success with Shaplands

Before we found Shaplands, we previously had tried out 2 other local swim schools with no success.  My two toddler aged boys cried constantly, wouldn't settle and were showing no improvement.  I thought I was going to give up on swim classes altogether until we started at Shaplands over 12 months ago and we have been happy there since.  The teachers are patient, the atmosphere is relaxed and both are thriving swimmers now.

Affordable instruction

My two children have been learning to swim at Shapland Swim Centre Everton Park for the past four years. I love the centres committment to quality swim instruction which is affordable for families. Shapland have a highly effective swim program delivered by excellent and friendly instructors who my children have loved. My children have now become competent and safe swimmers. Thank you Shapland!

Parents confident in toddler's abilities, thanks to Shaplands

We enrolled our son Chace to start swimming at 6 months because we were building a pool at our house and wanted to ensure he could it safely. Shapland has turned our son into a living, breathing, fish. At just two and a half he now loves the water. He can swim unassisted and confidently in our backyard pool without any problems at all. He can do entire laps by himself and he can swim faster than me. I would never leave my child alone near a pool, but I know if he ever did fall into the pool he would be able to swim to the side and climb out without any difficulty at all. The teachers are fantastic and they really care about the kids, the mineral water pool is indoors, heated and usable all year round, and the facilities are just great. We’ve now enrolled our new born son, Beau, as well.

Paralympian began swimming lessons at Kallangur

Dear John and Sally,
I would like to thank you for teaching me how to swim. Over the years you have taught me lots about swimming. Thanks to you I have improved my swimming very much and I enjoy it so much. I will always remember you and the fun times Marcus and I have had in your classes. Thanks to my first coach maybe one day I will swim for Australia. 

Love Brenden.

Patient and amazing teacher

thank you card, Shapland Swim SchoolsJohn, thank you so much for the last four years. You are amazing witht he boys and have such patience! When I told Aiden last night that today would be his last lesson, he cried for about an hour! That in itself demonstrates what an impact you've had on the boys! 

All the very best,
Mary.


Success in short space of time

When my daughter started with John at Shapland Kallangur, she had all the confidence but lacked the ability which I felt was a dangerous combination.  John, had her swimming beautifully very quickly. I can’t believe how far she has come in such a small space of time. She listens to John and really wants to make him proud of her – it really matters to her. Maddison loves her lessons which, as a mum makes it so simple to get her going every Thursday afternoon even through the Winter! The small groups means she doesn’t get bored and has more one on one time with her coach, we also love the make-up system which allows free catch ups if we can’t make a session.I have in the past and will continue to recommend John and all the team at Shapland Kallangur.

Wonderful year of swimming lessons

Thank you Pamela for a wonderful year. Our son Jackson has loved swimming on a Saturday morning and I really enjoy coming too. We can't wait till our other son Mitchell can so get a place.

I've read everyone of your newsletters and each has brought a smile to my face.

Thank you for what you do, you do it well.

Lauren.


Less Distractions at Shaplands

My 12 month old son has come on in leaps and bounds since starting at Shapland Swim School.  In fact he has learned more in 4 weeks at Shapland than he did after 5 months of swimming lessons somewhere else.  I feel that the small swimming group and only two classes in pool at once has made a big improvement as my son is not so distracted.  The staff at Shapland are very helpful and our swimming teacher Emma is just lovely.  She is so gentle and encouraging with my son and I'm sure that's why he has learned so much so fast.  I also appreciate how Emma knows exactly where my son is up to so we can work on things like him holding his breathe under water.  The pool itself is very clean and a pleasure to swim in.  I can't recommend Shapland Swim School high enough and most of friends have already swapped over to it.

Eczema and learning to swim in Magna Pool

My daughter has had moderate eczema since she was 4 months old.  We were unable to continue her swimming lessons in a chlorinated pool as, after just one lesson, her skin became very inflamed causing her much distress.  On the advice of a friend we enrolled her in swimming lessons earlier this year at Everton Park Shapland because of its magnapool.  This pool doesn't seem to flare my daughter's eczema, and we are thankful that because of this, she is now able to learn the very important skill of swimming

Just started and very impressed

Ted started with you 3 weeks ago and i just wanted to say I am beyond impressed with your school and in particular Teds teacher Heidi!
Ted has always been a big water baby but was a bit scarred by our previous swimming school experience with a really terrible teacher in an very overcrowded class. I truly cannot believe what a remarkable change I've seen in him and his swimming in just 3 short weeks-all thanks to Heidi, so thank you a million! We are so happy to be a part of your school!
Tracey (Everton Park)
