    Pool Safety and Swim Lessons


    Think Safety!

    Rules and regulations have been established for the safety of all HCRA members and their guests. But rules alone, no matter how long the list, are never a substitute for alert and engaged parenting. Child drowning can happen in a matter of seconds -- in the time it takes to answer a phone call.

    Four Critical Rules for Protecting Our Youngest Members:

    • Parents and Adults: Please watch your children at all times and report any instance where proper adult supervision appears to be lacking.
       
    • While in or near the pool, children unable to swim must be accompanied by an adult at all times. No exceptions!
       
    • Children and beginner swimmers must pass a swimming skills test before entering the deep end of the pool. The skills test will be administered by the pool attendant or pool manager as time permits.
       
    • Know what to do in case of an emergency. If a swimmer is missing always look in the pool first. Familiarize yourself with the location of lifesaving equipment, first aid supplies and the pool’s emergency phone.

    Contact the Club office if you are interested in swim lessons for your children. Lesson dates and times are flexible according to individual member needs. Instructors are certified in lifesaving and swimming instruction. Ages 3 and up.

    Club Members Only: Cost varies by individualized lesson plan.

    Common Sense Advice From Water Safety Experts

  • Obviously teach children to float or swim as soon as possible.
  • Always provide competent adult supervision when the pool is in use.
  • Even adults should never swim alone.
  • Caution children against showing off and playing rough and explain the dangers of running and diving recklessly.
  • Never push others into the pool.
  • When using water slides, always go feet first.
  • Before diving or sliding, check to be sure that other swimmers are out of the way.
  • Teach children what to do in case of emergency.
  • Never swim after drinking alcoholic beverages, eating or taking medications.
  • Water wings and other flotation devices give a false sense of protection and are not a substitute for proper supervision.
