OCPMS – Online Client Profile Management System

For over a decade of being involved with swim schools in many positions, from teacher to coordinator, and using many different management systems from spreadsheets to commercial software, I have found that there was very little in the way of programs specialising in swim school at an affordable price. I found the software that I have used lacked the ability to track performance of teachers, clients, and the swim school as a whole.

From this background we have developed the Online Client Profile Management System to specifically cater to the needs of running a swim school. Our swim school program can be integrated with other systems and with other programs in the OCPMS range to deliver a full system embracing management, eLearning, phone apps and more.

We have a passion for technology and by using and embracing technology we can bring big gains in performance, staff training, time saving and ease of use.

Guy Leech Defibrillators

Guy Leech – for Automated External Defibrillator

Yes, compared to a full-on aquatic and leisure centre, heart attacks and other conditions that require the heart to be re-started are rare at Swim Schools. However, they do happen! Think past the young children in classes. Think the accompanying parents. Think grandparents coming to watch. Think adult learners and lap swimmers. Having an AED on site can make a massive difference in successfully reviving the patient.

A goal of the Australian Swim Schools Association is to have 100% of Swim Schools with a high quality AED that meets (or exceeds) ANZCOR Guidelines. To help make this a reality, ASSA have partnered with Guy Leech to bring such a unit – The LIFEPAK CR Plus* – to you – with a 10% discount or a super payment plan.

SwimSeal™ Protective Ear Drops

When it comes to ear infections and pain caused by retained water in the ear, SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops are the only true preventative solution.

This unique solution creates a waterproof coating in the ear canal that expels water from the ear, preventing common water related ear problems.

In addition, SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops contain Australian Tea Tree oil that acts as a natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agent. Even better, it contains NO ALCOHOL which stings and is known to cause unnecessary irritation of the delicate lining of the ear canal which can lead to pain and infection.

The formulation of the drops is patented. SwimSeal was developed by Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical specialists and is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia, so it is very safe to use. In fact, all ages above 6 months can use and benefit from SwimSeal.

Just before entering the water 2-3 drops of SwimSeal are applied into each ear and within seconds the ear canals are coated with a water repelling lining. The drops do not impact hearing or balance, so throw away the ear plugs and the drops naturally migrate out of the ear over 2-3 hours.
