Swim Lessons

Holmes Run Pool offers swim lessons in a variety of formats including group, private, and semi-private lessons (with a sibling or friend). Find out what’s available and sign-up for the lessons that best suit your needs.

Private Swim Lessons

One-on-one lessons are available at Holmes Run Pool! Whether you are just starting out as a new swimmer or want help to improve your performance in swim meets, our swim instructors can help.

Choosing a Swim Instructor

HRARA instructors vary in age, experience, and style. When selecting an instructor for private lessons, please consider your specific goals (basic flotation and comfort in the water, encouragement to learn swim strokes, or refining technique and efficiency for experienced swimmers). Rates are dependent on instructor training and experience.

LEVEL 3 swim instructors, although relatively new to swim instruction, are skilled swimmers who have gained much of their experience competing on the Hurricanes swim team. They are a great choice for young children who love the water and are excited to learn how to swim.

LEVEL 2 swim instructors are an excellent choice for any type of student of any age. Older and more seasoned than Level 3 instructors, they have extensive experience teaching and are certified in AED, CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding.

LEVEL 1 swim instructors are our most experienced swim instructor. They are wonderful for beginner level swim students who need a little extra support or advanced swimmers looking to improve their performance and gain a competitive edge.

Schedule

Swim lessons run from June 11 through July 31. Additional lessons may be added in August should swim instructors become available.

Lessons are offered all day during the week and in the afternoon on weekends. However, there is limited availability during the pool's busy period from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm on weekdays and weekends.

To schedule a lesson during this time (5-6:30 pm), please select any lesson labeled "peak hours."

Location

Lessons are in the Upper Pool, in the lane near the pool steps. Parents may choose to observe from the chairs on the pool deck, but younger swimmers may focus better when their parent or guardian is not nearby. So in some cases, it's best to give your swimmer and instructor some space. Safety is a top priority. A lifeguard is always guarding the Upper Pool during lessons.

Rescheduling & Cancellations Policy

Lessons may be rescheduled with 24 hours notice. If a lesson must be cancelled, refunds may be requested provided cancellation notice is given at least 48 hours in advance. If the pool is closed due to thunder or other reasons, members are encouraged to reschedule.

To reschedule or cancel a lesson, log in to the website and go to "Profile >> Swim Lessons."

PLEASE make every effort to reschedule or cancel your lesson if you can't make it, even if it is at the last minute. This immediately notifies your swim instructor so they won't be kept waiting!

Swim Clinics for the Hurricanes

Swim Clinics, led by Coach Eric Ross, are a great way for your swimmer to work on their racing technique above and beyond what happens at practice. We are offering three different clinics this year: Starts, Turns, and Individual Medley (IM) technique (Did you know the Hurricanes won the IM Carnival in 2021???). Please feel free to sign up for just one or for all three of the clinics.

Note: Swim Clinics are offered for swim team members swimming as Hurricanes this season. If you would like some additional instruction for your Tropical Storm swimmer, or for a non-swim team member, please sign-up for private or group lessons.
