Children’s swimming lessons are finally set to resume on the Sunshine Coast.
The Coast’s nine aquatic centres will reopen on Saturday 13 June.
The aquatic centres are located at Beerwah, Buderim, Caloundra, Coolum-Peregian, Cotton Tree, Eumundi, Kawana, Nambour and Palmwoods.
This means kids swimming lessons – including mums and bubs classes – can recommence.
Like many council facilities, the aquatic centres have been closed due to coronavirus restrictions.
During the closures, council brought forward upgrades at Caloundra, Kawana, Cotton Tree, Eumundi and Nambour aquatic centres.
Collectively, these centres underwent $1.9 million in refurbishments.
The state government has now released an industry plan for aquatic centres.
Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the plan may impact scheduling.
“I urge all residents to contact the aquatic centres directly to understand the impact that the industry plan may have on regular scheduling.
“COVID Safe measures must be in place,” he said.
“This will set the precedent for their timetables for lessons and lane availability.”
