Swimming Pool

Changes to the Elgin Swimming Pool

I would like to start this post off with a big thank you to Jim Keller.  Without his work and dedication we would never have been able to get the pool up and running properly again.  Thanks to this work we will be offering swimming lessons again this summer.  All swimming lesson times will be 4:30 – 6:00 PM.  Swimming lessons for Elgin/New Leipzig will be held July 2nd through July 12th.  Lessons for Carson will be offered from May 29th to June 7th.  Lessons for Flasher will be offered from June 11th to 21st.  Fees for swimming lessons are $35 for the first student, $60 for two students, $85 for three students, and $100 for the four students.

Along with these changes we have alterations to our pricing, intending to keep our community pool viable.  The price of admission will go up by one dollar, this ups the price from $2 for kids and $3 for adults to $3 for kids and $4 for adults.  The Park Board will generously continue to pay $2 for kids and $3 for adults during open swimming.  This means patrons will only need to provide $1 during open swimming per swimmer.

New to this year, we will be offering passes.  Individuals seeking a swimming pass for the whole year need only pay $35.  Families can get a pass for $75 for the year.  Senior citizens (62 years and older) can get a pass for only $15.  If you get our “Friends of the Pool” pass for $100 you will get admission to open swimming for the year and 20% off pool rentals and swimming lessons.  Again this is an effort to keep our pool viable.

Pool rentals will be $50 for 1 hour and 1 guard.  The size of the party can be 20 people or less.  If you wish to rent the pool for 2 hours the charge is $75.  If your party has more than 20 people it will require 2 life guards.  To rent the pool with two lifeguards the cost will be $75 for 1 hour and $115 for 2 hours.  If you have a “Friends of the Pool” pass you will get the 20% discount.

I am pleased to announce a summer open swimming schedule.  Presently starting in June we plan to hold open swimming 1-3 PM Monday through Friday and on Sundays.  Then on Tuesday and Thursday we plan to hold open swimming 6-8 PM as well.

Very soon we will post swimming schedules on the school website under departments.  You can look here for any announcements or changes.
