Here are a few important things to know…

Photo IDs are Required for Admission

Photo IDs are required for entry to the pool facility. Save time at check-in and upload your own photo (just a headshot – no hats or sunglasses, please) to your HRARA Membership Account. If you are unable to upload your photo, you may send it to the Membership Coordinator or plan to have it taken the first day you come to the pool.

Unaccompanied Minors

Youth ages 11-17 are allowed to come to the pool alone as long as the parent member agrees to HRARA’s unaccompanied minor policy. To complete the necessary form, Login to Your Profile through the pool website (not the esoft system). Select ‘minor’ on the gray tab and complete the necessary form. Both parent and child need to agree to the policies. Children who do not have this form completed will not be allowed to be on pool property without a parent or guardian present. Those age 14 or older may be designated as a babysitter in charge of other children. (NOTE: A new Unaccompanied Minor form must be filled out at the beginning of each season.)

Parking at the Pool

The weather has been perfect for pool season and our facility is busier than ever. Please remember to drive slowly in the parking lot and watch for small children. If the lot is full, parking is available on neighborhood streets including Executive Avenue and Hemlock Avenue. From Hemlock, you may walk behind Woodburn Elementary School, pass the playground, tennis courts and field and take the path through the woods to the pool property.

Break Time!

Every hour, the pool observes a 10-minute break time when swimmers ages 15 and under must exit the pool completely. Please remind your children to observe break time by sitting on the lounge chairs or enjoying the pool grounds. Children are not allowed to sit at the edge of the pool or keep their feet in the water as a safety precaution.

Swimmers 16 and over are welcome to stay in the pool during break time. If a lifeguard asks a swimmer to observe break time, please comply with the request. If there is a disagreement regarding the age of the swimmer, please have the swimmer confirm their age at the pool house.

We are pleased to announce the registration for the 2022 season is open! Sign up and join today.

For 2022, the rates will remain the same as last year.  We are also pleased to offer an “Early Bird” rate that gives you the same rate as 2020 season.  If you do not plan to return as a member this year, be sure to let us know and pay your inactive fee of $75 to maintain your shareholder status.

Payment must be made online or postmarked by April 15, 2022 to qualify for early bird rates.

After doing a market analysis, the BOD has decided to adjust the number of guest passes included in each membership to be in line with what is offered at other area pools. Individual guest passes may be purchased for $10 each.

We are very excited to share this upcoming swim season with you all and look forward to seeing you all poolside!

May 19, 2021

We are excited to welcome everyone to the 2021 pool season starting May 29! Due to the Governor lifting restrictions on capacity and distancing week next, we are pleased to announce the pool will be operating under much more normal circumstances than last year. We welcome comments, questions, and suggestions as we gear up for a fun summer at the pool.

Pools: Reservations will not be required to swim in upper, lower, or baby pools. However, one lane in the upper pool will be available by reservation only in one hour time blocks. Instructions for reserving the lane, using the same system as last year, will be made available on our website.

Guest Passes: Members will be allowed to use guest passes only on weekdays until further notice.

Lawn: The lawn, picnic tables, playground, and basketball court will be fully open. Members may have food delivered to the pool.

Decks: Deck reservations will not be available until further notice. However members may use the decks on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Masks: Masks will not be required for members and pool staff while in the upper and lower pool houses, nor while outside on pool grounds, in line with the Governor’s announcement lifting the universal mask mandate effective May 14. We encourage members and staff to follow current CDC guidelines for mask usage for vaccinated/unvaccinated people.

2021 Season Covid-19 Impacts

We anticipate that new guidelines for outdoor pools will be issued by the governor by the beginning of May.  These guidelines will dictate our operational procedures.  Once received, the Board of Directors (BOD) will establish appropriate operating procedures and communicate them to you.

Guest Passes

The BOD has held discussions regarding the use of guest passes for the 2021 season.  It is our hope to allow the use of guest passes this season.  We do not expect to make a decision about the use of guest passes until we receive the guidelines from the governor and establish our operating procedures for the season.  The BOD also recognizes that our members from last year (2020) were not able to use their guest passes during the season.  We will look to find a way that our members from last season will be able to use their 2020 guest passes this year.

HELP WANTED! Open Board of Directors Positions

The HRARA Board of Directors currently has two open positions for any member looking to become more involved with the pool.  We are specifically interested in volunteers to assist in the areas of communication as well as engineering and maintenance.  If you are interested or would like to hear more about the BOD, please contact us through the website.

Sponsorships Available

The Board of Directors voted to permit sponsorships beginning this year.  Individuals and/or businesses may sponsor the association and will receive a link on our website and newsletters for the year.  If you are interested in learning more about a sponsorship, please contact us.

Cicadas

After 17 years, the cicadas will be visiting us all this summer.  Please understand that we cannot spray pesticide to prevent them from being on the property.
