    How can I register for swimming lessons?

    Registration begins in the middle of May before the pool opens. Be sure to watch the website, the Hanna Herald and social media for details on dates and times. Additional registrations will be accepted at the pool following registration night.

    Do I pay for my five year old child?

    No, rates begin at age 6.  Additional pool rates can be found on the rates page.

    Where do I find the schedules?

    Schedules can be downloaded from this page and picked up at the pool or at the Town Office.

    Why must I be at "arms reach" with my child?

    Even though the Town of Hanna employs Lifeguards, they can’t be watching every child all the time.  Your children are ultimately safer if you are nearby to help them in the event they need it.

    My four year old swims like a fish! Way better than my 8 year old! Who decides if they can go in the pool without me? What age or skill level is used?

    According to the National Lifesaving Society, any child 8 and under needs to be accompanied by someone 12 or older and within arms reach.  Staff can administer a ‘swim test’ to assess if the child has the kills to be able to swim unassisted in the water.  If the child, who is 8 or younger is successful, they still need to be accompanies but do not need to be within arms reach.  Please consult with the pool staff for clarification.

    I would like to be able to take my 5 year old grandson to the kiddie pool to play while I read my book in the shade of the covered benches. Do I have to pay?

    Yes, you are still required to pay because you still need to be in the water within arms reach of your child.  The size and abilities of the swimmer may allow a broader use of the pools.  Lifeguards have the ability to assess the skills, abilities and comfort levels.
