Our swim programs
Gina’s swim programs include swimming and survival skills as well as the importance of safety in and around the water.
We are a boutique swim school located in Coolum Beach and run by Gina Baruch. Gina is a highly qualified swim instructor with over 20 years of experience. Our classes are taught in a nurturing environment and each child’s needs are considered in order to maximise their learning experience.
Advantages of small swim class sizes in a boutique swim school:
Swim programs to suit babies (from 6wks) to prep aged children.
Lessons on swimming and survival skills as well as water safety.
Regular classes from Tuesday through to Saturday each week.
Heated Ozone accredited swimming pool with change room facilities.
My little one absolutely loves her swimming lessons at Gina’s. Gina builds up a lovely relationship and trust with the kids that allows them to learn to swim in a fun, yet firm environment. Highly recommend!
Gina is a fantastic swim teacher! The lessons are in small groups (max 3 children) and with only one lesson at a time it means it’s the best possible environment for the children to focus. The pool is a great size too to properly practice strokes / kicking etc.
We cannot recommend Ginas blue water babies enough. From day one, Gina has made sure our daughter feels safe, comfortable and excited to be in the water. Ginas class structure is carefully tailored to your little one (which we loved). Looking back (now after two terms of lessons), I’m amazed with how much our daughter has developed in the water. Gina has gifted our daughter with a love for swimming and a confidence both in and out of the water. Your lessons truly are a highlight of Billies (and my) week. Thank you Gina xo
We enrolled with Gina’s as we understand the importance of not only learning how to swim but water safety. Our little one learnt how to climb out of the pool with Gina before learning how to walk. We appreciate the gentle discipline & teaching of respect, learning how to wait your turn & sharing which is taught in a fun way by singing songs, using toys & puppets at every lesson. All values we want to teach our child. Highly recommend Gina’s Bluewater Babies!!
My partner and I take our daughter to Gina’s for swimming lessons and we are loving every session. Our daughter has progressed so much in such a short time thanks to ginas guidance. Best swim school on the coast. Highly recommend
I enrolled my daughter at Gina’s Blue Water Babies Swim School after moving to the Sunshine Coast last year. I wanted her to be a good swimmer and be confident in the water. In the last year my daughter has flourished at Gina’s. She feels safe in the water and she is so proud of her achievements. Gina is a lovely teacher and my daughter looks forward to attending each week. The pool area, toilets and change room are always very clean and well maintained. Thanks Gina for all your great work!
We have been attending swim lessons since my son was 8 weeks old.. he is now 7 months old and we love it that much we attend 2 lessons a week. Gina is extremely patient and gentle with all the babies all whilst teaching such an important life skill. Lots of laughs, singing and lots of happy, confident little babies in the water. We couldn’t recommend Gina enough !
My twins have made amazing progress in the last few months woth Gina, looking forward to seeing how much more in the next few months! Would highly recommend.
My little ones (4&2) have been attending Ginas blue water babies for approx 6 months now. My eldest has been very cautious & very nervous around water and was very hesitant to go into a pool, Since coming to Gina he is now starting to gain more confidence each class and starting to really enjoy his lessons with Gina. Gina picked up on Elis weaknesses very quickly and she continues to work on them in a very positive encouraging manner. She relates really well to the children and deals with a whole range of abilities fantastically. She is also really well organised, tidy & very professional. "We love swimming with Gina" Highly recommended Ginas Blue Water Babies !!!
Gina has been literally a life saver. Our 3yo daughter had become really anxious in the water and wouldn’t let go of me. 8 lessons on and shes swimming in transitional classes and going under the water. Similarly my 17mo is much happier in Gina’s small classes and the calm environment. Would highly recommend for families with two small kids, Gina will do her best to accommodate back to back classes.
I would definitely recommend lessons with Gina. My two children attend and I feel confident knowing they are learning the skills they need to be safe around the water and are having fun at the same time!
Thanks Gina for providing a lovely, cosy, environment, and quality instruction, so that our young son can pick up the fundamentals of swimming. He is very lucky - all your young swimmers are very lucky - to be given this start.
I have two children enrolled with Gina and the results are phenomenal. They began with Gina at six weeks old and both have been attending lessons twice a week since. My four year old was swimming unassisted by age two, and my 20 month old is well on her way to the same milestone. Their confidence and awareness in the water is so reassuring, especially for a parent on the coast. They respect the water and their pool safety skills are now second nature. I cannot recommend Gina enough!
Our 15 month loves her swimming lessons with Gina. Gina continued to teach a land based program while we couldn’t attend during COVID. Now that we have returned to classes Gina has implemented COVID safe cleaning and social distancing as well as the smaller class sizes.
We went to Gina's Blue Water Babies for 6 years. My children have learnt excellent swimming skills, water safety and confidence. They love swimming! Gina's swimming environment has adapted to COVID precautions. I would highly recommend swimming lessons at Gina's!
We have been at Gina’s for about 2 months now with my 9 month old and I am so happy we chose her school. She is extremely educated and so gentle and patient with the babies. I especially enjoy the small class sizes which allows more time for one on one. Could not recommend Gina enough !
My 4 month old son loves attending Gina's classes. She truly adores teaching and makes sure every moment is fun and safe in the pool. Gina is very organised with reminders and her pool and toys are always clean. We travel over 30 minutes to our class each week because we like the small class numbers with one-on-one teacher attention, and of course... we love Gina!
We love swimming lessons at Gina's! We have been attending for a few years with my oldest, and recently started my baby there too. Originally we chose this swim school for the Ozone poole, but have grown to love it so much for the small classes (just 2 or 3 kids per class, so lots of individual attention), and the strong focus on safety outside of the pool too. Gina has also added extra health and safety measures during this time so everyone can feel confident enjoying swimming lessons.
Thank you, Gina for making sure that our family is safe during COVID-19. My 5 year old and 9 month old have returned to Gina’s during this time. There are clear social distancing procedures for parents and children. She sanitises between lessons and professional cleans daily and the OZONE pool systems guarantees chemical free, clean water. We’re so glad to return to swimming!
Resuming swimming lessons after the Covid closure was a stress free experience for my family. Gina has maintained a very clean and safe environment for everyone by installing a new hygiene station at the entrance and exit, cleaning between lessons and continuing to have small class sizes. She also has the Ozone filtration system in the pool which maintains a clean and healthy swimming environment. I am very happy to continue having our swimming lessons at Gina's during these challenging times.
My son has been going to Gina for a while now and he has improved so much and loves it. Also through this isolation period Gina has gone above and beyond.. keeping in contact with everyone and providing land based swimming lessons online absolutely free. Her and Donna are amazing swim teachers and my son can't wait to get back there!
Gina has taught my son to swim and he is now just working on stroke development and stamina. My baby is booked in to start also. Her methods are holistic and she adapts her strategies to meet the needs of each child. Thank you, Gina 😊
We love swimming lessons with Gina and Donna . They are very professional and the kids really enjoy there lessons .
Gina’s Blue Water Babies has been such a blessing for our daughters transition from Victoria. Never having done a swimming lesson and being 4 she has loved every minute of the program and is progressing and enjoying every lesson. Gina and Donna have been so great and welcoming. It’s great to be apart of that kind of nurturing environment. Thank you Belinda
Enjoy swimming in clean, hygienic water without the smell and irritation caused by high levels of chlorine. Because your health and well being is our concern!
