Haley Nelson: Pool Manager

May 16, 2023

Hello everyone!

My name is Haley Nelson, and I am very excited to return for my sixth summer working at the Town of Hanna Swimming Pool. This is my second summer as the Pool Manager. I just finished my third year in the Bachelor of Education Middle Years program at Red Deer Polytechnic. This career choice definitely reflects my passion for teaching swimming lessons and advanced aquatic programs.

I’m excited to be offering Shallow Water Workout, National Lifeguard Pool, Lifesaving Society Swim Instructor/Examiner, and Junior Lifeguard Camp. AND, I’m happy to announce that we will return to opening at 6:30 am for lane swim on weekdays for the majority of the pool season as noted on the pool schedules.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the pool this summer – it will be a SPLASH!

Haley Nelson,
Hanna Pool Manager

Haley is thrilled to announce a new program – Shallow Water Workout – being offered at the pool this summer every Tues and Thurs. Just drop-in, registration isn’t required. Hanna is very lucky to have two certified WaterArt H2O Instructors on staff who are excited to offer 45-minute water fitness classes twice a week. These classes will replace noon hour lane swim those two days. Haley promises a good workout with lots of fun and asks everyone to share this information with family and friends. The first Shallow Water Workout class will be at Noon on Tues. May 23.

As well as the Shallow Water Workout, Haley has added three new aquatic programs to the lineup at the pool. Registration is already open for the following:

  • National Lifeguard Pool
  • Lifesaving Society Swim Instructor/Examiner
  • Junior Lifeguard Camp
