Pool Rules & Safety Guidelines

Drowning is not the violent, splashing call for help that most people expect.

Drowning is almost always a deceptively quiet event. The waving, splashing, and yelling that television prepares us to look for is rarely seen in real life. In 10 percent of drownings, adults are nearby but have no idea the victim is dying. Here’s what to look for: Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning.

View the Pool Safety Rules & Guidelines.


Swim Lessons

Swim lessons for all skill levels are available throughout the season for ages 3 (by January 1 of current year) and up.

All registrations are in person at HVL Pool, 20698 Lakeview Drive. Registrations are accepted during normal pool operating hours. We will continue registration until each class is full. There is limited space available for each class, so registration is first-come, first-served. If you are not sure what level your child needs, we can help you at registration. Registration forms are available, or download 2017 Swim Lesson Registration FormCost: $40 per child per week.
