Reopening Safely

On September 9, Holland Community Aquatic Center will be reopening to members, schools and the public. While we’re extremely excited to share this news, please keep in mind that the pool has been closed for nearly six months, and it will take some time to restore our services fully. In alignment with direction from the State, there are a number of important conditions to our operation, and we ask for your cooperation and grace during this time.

Open Times

Beginning on the 9th and for the foreseeable future, we will be splitting the day into sessions.

Please Note: We will no longer be requiring appointments.

Memberships

If you have (or had) an active membership prior to the closure of HCAC, we will be honoring any time you have paid for but were unable to use because of the pandemic. For example, if you had three months left when we closed in March, those three months will re-commence beginning Sep 9.

Capacity

State regulations allow us to reopen the pool and gym areas to 25% capacity. For lap swim, we will be limiting access to 2 swimmers per lane with a 30-minute time limit (if others are waiting for a lane).

Safety

Holland Community Aquatic Center places the highest priority on the safety of our guests. As such, we will be following all state requirements and adding some of our own precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. How this affects our users:

  • MASKS: Guests must wear a mask in all dryland spaces including the gym while working out. This is required by the State. When swimming, guests may remove their masks just before entering the water but need to wear it while on the deck and or waiting for a lane.
  • CHANGING: Guests will be permitted to use the changing and locker rooms. However, to reduce shared surfaces, lockers will not be available at this time. Guests will be permitted to leave a bag in a safe place near a wall on the pool deck or gym.
  • SOCIAL DISTANCING: Guests must respect six feet of distance between other guests outside their party. We have installed guides and spaced equipment to ensure this is possible.
  • CLEANING: In addition to afterhours cleaning, and a three-hour closure from Noon-3p each day for deep cleaning, we have an hourly schedule of disinfecting shared surfaces including doors, counters, bathrooms and change rooms.

Construction Considerations

Many of our users have not been near HCAC since we began construction for our Everyday Renovation and Expansion project in the Spring. Many portions of our facility and parking lot are in a state of construction and demolition, which in some cases will affect how we move through the building. The new temporary entrance and parking lot entry are on the west side of the building off of Washington Ave. There is a parking map available HERE. Please be mindful of our construction workers when parking and entering the facility.

Thank You

We are grateful to our members and the community for your support and patience during our closure this summer. We overjoyed to see folks return to our space for swim lessons, competitions and fitness once again!
