Huntley Hills Swim and Tennis Club is proud to be offering three levels of swim lessons.
Each student will sign up for one week of lessons at a time. Due to instructor availability, only weekly schedules are available at this time.
Private or One-on-one – Ideal for our youngest swimmers (aged 3 and above) or those wanting to get more comfortable in the water. The goals of this class are to put face in water, blow bubbles, be comfortable on the back, learning proper kicking technique, and prone and back floating.
We will offer two levels – three days a week or two days a week
Group Lesson- Three students per single instructor. Ideal for swimmers who are more comfortable in the water and able to touch bottom in the shallow end of the pool. The goal is to build on skills the child already has and move them into more coordinated swimming. The lesson will focus on proper flutter kick technique, move from bouncing off bottom into prone swimming position, obtaining breath while swimming without touching bottom, and other skills as appropriate.
Advanced and Lessons by Appointment– Individualized instruction with year round competitive swimmer. Designed for swim team members to get specific help with stroke technique, starts, and turns. Scheduling will be done on an as-needed basis. This offering will consist of two 25 minute sessions with the instructor during the week for $70.

Sign up link for next week is:
Rain out notifications will be sent approximately 1 hour prior to the lesson beginning. Rainouts are based on the forecast and weather conditions an hour prior to lessons.
Weather changes rapidly and most lesson takers are young children, so the most conservative interpretation of the weather will be used.
If it looks like rain or thunder for the next hour, lessons will likely be cancelled. If it is raining one hour prior to lesson starts and looks like the rain may end shortly, lessons will go on.
Unfortunately, weather forecasts are not always accurate. Lessons may be cancelled and the sun could come out 15 minutes prior to a lesson start time. Or a pop-up thunderstorm that was not predicted could close the pool unexpectedly.
We are basing decisions regarding swim lessons on the best information available at the time. Please understand canceling swim lessons is an inconvenience for all of us. We will do our best to run lessons when it is safe and comfortable for the children.
Notifications will go out via the email we have on file and on the HHSTC Members Only Facebook Page.
If you have a Monday/Wednesday MORNING lesson, the makeup day is FRIDAY at the same time as your Monday/Wednesday lesson.
If you have a Monday/Wednesday EVENING lesson, the makeup day is THURSDAY at the same time as your Monday/Wednesday lesson.
If the rainout day is cancelled due to weather, the remainder of the week is cancelled and you will only be charged for the lessons attended.
If you cannot attend the rainout day, please email email@example.com and you will only be charged for the lessons attended.
Due to the unpredictability of the weather and to avoid unnecessary management overhead, we will send the payment link on Sunday with the appropriate amount. If it isn’t right, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vision of swim lessons program
The swim lessons program is an opportunity for our instructors have their first “job”. Many of the instructors are active on the Huntley Hills swim team and several swim in year round programs. All were selected for their love of swimming and a desire to teach young people how to swim.
Kelly Carter is running the swimming lessons program and offering her time to the club for the enhancement of the membership. She is a volunteer. She is not earning hours for the cabana on 4th of July for this either and is bitter about it.
Kelly believes having a swimming lessons program is vital to the growth and enjoyment of our youngest swimmers. The program is as robust as she can manage between working at her husband’s law office, managing her children’s activity schedules, helping at swim meets for HHSTC and Dynamo, and having some fun at the pool.
