Little Mountain Aquatic Centre makes a splash

The Little Mountain Aquatic Centre has partnered with Healthy Sunshine Coast to offer seniors a low cost aqua fitness class and morning tea program, providing attendees with the opportunity to socialise while exercising. The classes are held every Monday from 10.30am in the centre’s heated pool, followed by cake and coffee from the One Table café.

Aquatic Centre breaks down social isolation

Campus Mission Coordinator Ryan Salzke said the classes at the Aquatic Centre have been instrumental in breaking down social isolation not just for Sunshine Coast seniors, but all members of the family including parents and children.

“We currently have 140 lap swimming members, 130 learn-to-swim students and a strong connection with the Dicky Beach Nippers Club and Meridan State College.

“Little Mountain Campus is becoming a part of the local community’s routine. It is a place where visitors feel welcomed and are known by name by our staff,” Ryan said.

With the addition of the new facility to the West of Caloundra, Little Mountain Campus offers the community the convenience of location and access to hire the state-of-the-art auditorium and functional spaces.

Currently enjoyed as a hub for gatherings, Little Mountain Campus supports local businesses and community groups including dance classes, kettlebell and jujitsu classes, pilates and community singing groups.
