Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

To all our wonderful swimming families and amazing customers, thank you for all your support during the year. Please stay safe and all the very best for a happy and healthy 2022!

From Chris, Rob and the entire Swim1 team.

Swim 1 is a family owned swim school operated by Advanced (Silver Licenced) coach Chris Spencer. We’re based only a few streets away from the beach in Coolum on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

We conduct learn to swim classes from 6 months through to squad development levels, adult lessons, and stroke correction. We also conduct Magna Therapy sessions and H2O Magnafit Workouts.

Why learn with Swim 1?

We are a registered Swim Australia Swim School, with fully qualified and highly experienced staff.

Our pool is a fully enclosed 15 metre, indoor heated pool, all with the health benefits of a magnesium mineral salt system and ozone. For more information  visit https://www.magnapool.com.


This system provides so many benefits to all our swimmers, staff and patrons. It’s safe and hygienic, healthy for your body, skin and mind, relieves stress and anxiety, detoxifies the body, reduces aches and pains, and provides your muscles with energy. It’s also great for our environment too!
