Individual Lessons

Private swim lessons are now available at Holmes Run Pool!  Lessons are exclusively offered to members of HRARA and can be reserved by logging on to your Membership Access account.  (Note: if you have forgotten your password or need other technical assistance, please CLICK HERE Do not create a new account)

You are able to:

  • Select your instructor.  Lesson instructors vary in age, experience, and style.  Consider which teacher will be the best fit to accomplish your specific goals: basic flotation and comfort in the water, encouragement to learn swim strokes, or refining technique and efficiency for experienced swimmers.  Each instructor is assigned a slightly different rate, depending on their training and experience.

  • Choose a lesson slot.  Lessons are available almost every day, and different times of day in order to accommodate many schedules.  Cancellations are acceptable with 24 hour notice; within 24 hours, there can be no refunds.  If the pool is closed due to thunder or other reasons, members are encouraged to reschedule.  More slots are added over time, as instructor availability is confirmed.  
  • Pay online  Lessons may be purchased by credit card one-at-a-time or in a discounted pack of 5.  If you prefer to pay by check, lessons cannot be reserved online; instead, CLICK HERE to submit your requested day, time, and instructor and a confirmation will be sent to you (Note: availability cannot be guaranteed).  Payment in full is due at the beginning of the first lesson.  If a 5-pack is purchased, that is credited to your account, so members may "bank" them and schedule any time in the future; for example, you may reserve 2 lessons now and later come back to schedule the other 3 lessons.

All lessons will take place in the Upper Pool, in the lane near the pool steps.  Parents may choose to observe from the chairs on the pool deck; younger swimmers may focus better when mom and dad are not nearby, so in some cases it could make sense to leave your swimmer and teacher alone.  All swim lesson aids will be provided.  Safety is our #1 priority and a lifeguard will always be guarding the Upper Pool during lessons.

Group Lessons

We are now offering group swim lessons on Sunday mornings for children ages 6 months to 7 years old!  There are 3 levels:

The Parent & Paddler lesson is for ages 6 months to 4 years.  Parent(s) participate in the water with their child. Instruction is tailored to the comfort level of the child.  Children and parents learn water safety skills, water adjustment, and basic swimming strategies.  Come meet other parents and children of similar ages from our pool community! 

Level 1 is for ages 3-5.  Non-swimmers.  Must be able to separate from parents.  Children will be instructed in basic water safety, how to float in the water, submerge face under water, kick, and begin arm strokes.

Level 2 is for ages 4-7. Beginning swimmers. Review of water safety rules, floating, and kicking. Children will learn the basics of freestyle and backstroke.
