Pools Are Open!

The BOTH Pools are OPEN!  

 

The Pools

First and foremost, THANK YOU to the residents who volunteered for the Pool Committee this year. They provided valuable insight and suggestions for HSTA to consider with regard to the daily operation of the community pools.

The pools will be open May 26th through September 4th from 6:00 am until 10:00 pm or dark, whichever occurs first. Weekly schedules of activities and events will be posted at each pool and on the website. Sandwich boards at each pool also communicate daily activities, events and CLOSURES.  The pools are CLOSED for 30 minutes six days a week for cleaning, testing and the addition of any necessary chemicals. Residents may remain pool side and enjoy the sun while Pool Doctor is on site.

A community access card or key fob is required at each pool. HOA accounts must be current to receive an access card. If your HOA has a delinquent balance, access will be suspended until the account is paid in full. If you need a replacement card, please visit the HSTA office during regular business hours. The “Sign In” sheets used at the pools request a first and last name, time of arrival and number of pool users. Use of the sign in sheets dates back to 2010 and helps the HSTA keep count of the number of residents and their guests at the pools for scheduling and maintenance purposes. Access cards/fobs do not capture the number of pool goers per swipe.

Pool monitors are empowered by the HSTA to enforce the pool rules and if intentionally disregarded, to ask residents to leave the pool area.  An incident report will be completed for EVERY violation and submitted to the Town Association.  If a resident does not comply and the situation requires the presence of the Town Manager or Assistant Town Manager at the pool, it is classified as Level Four (see Pool Incidents/Procedures).  

If you have employed a sitter for the summer, who is 15+ years of age, and would like to obtain a Sitter Pass so they can take the kids to the pool, please visit the Town Office.  Parents may complete and sign a waiver, provide a $50.00 refundable deposit and obtain the easy-to-identify – Sitter Pass.   Parents are responsible for making sure their sitter and children are familiar with the pool rules and schedules.  At the end of the summer, parents may return the pass for a full refund.  

Aqua Zumba/Water Aerobics will be offered at the Clubhouse Pool this year on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00am, starting June 12th. The cost is $60.00 for the 10-week session.  We have secured the same instructor as last year with new routines and music! In order to hold the class, a minimum of 20 residents must be signed up and the class fee paid by June 6th.  Please make checks payable to HSTA and drop them off at the Town Office.  If we do not get enough participants, payment will be returned to you.  

YMCA Swim lessons will NOT be offered at the pools this year.  If you are interested in swim lessons, please contact the Treasure Valley YMCA (208) 377-9622 or visit the website www.ymcatvidaho.org.  Please check the pool schedules before booking swim lessons with a private instructor to avoid conflicts.

The Hidden Springs Youth Swim Club will practice at the South Meadow Pool, Monday through Friday mornings from 8:30am until 11:30am, June 5th through July 28th, The South Meadow pool will be unavailable for other uses during this time.  This year, Hidden Springs will host two (2) swim meets: Sat. June 24th 7:30 am to 1:00 pm and Sat. July 15th 7:30 am to 1:00 pm.

Adult Swim Night (21+) will be held every Wednesday evening at the Clubhouse pool starting May 31st from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm or dark, whichever occurs first. 

Lap Swimming will be available at the South Meadow Pool for adults and experienced adolescent swimmers from (Mon-Fri 6:00 to 8:30 am / Sat 6:00 to 7:00 am and 7:30 to 9:30 am*) and (Mon-Thurs 5:30 to 7:00pm). Afternoon lap swimmers are asked to share the pool but will have two lanes devoted to lap swimming.

The Clubhouse Pool is centrally located in the community. The pool is chlorinated and features a gradual depth decline.

The South Meadow Pool is a saline system and is an excellent facility for lap swimming (Hidden Springs Swim Team practices at the South Meadow Pool and the community hosts at least two swim meets during the competitive season).  There is also a baby pool with umbrella "mushroom" water fountain.
