 It's Halloween season at HSC! Pumpkin contests, dress-up, and goodie bags...
Oct 25, 2021

This week (Oct 25-30), we’re all about pumpkins and Halloween fun! Pumpkins, candy, and costumes galore, there’s so much happening at Houston Swim Club.

This week we invite our students to wear their costumes to swim class, and at the end of their lesson please stop by our front office for a bag of Halloween goodies!

Our kiddos aren’t the only ones dressing up this year (okay yes, we’ll be dressed up, too – we’re all big kids here), because it’s time for our 4th Annual Pumpkin contest! Our employees look forward to it all year long. Each pool divides up into teams and decorates a pumpkin for the contest. Houston Swim Club is all about being a family, and we show it…our employees meet after work, meet at their homes, at the park or coffee shops, and work together to make the most fantabulous pumpkins you’ve ever seen.

It’s a BIG deal and they are so excited to show off their creations.


The decorated pumpkins will be on display at each location all week long so you can vote on your favorite. The winner at each location will go on to “the finals” where you can vote on the Grand Pumpkin on Facebook and Instagram.

The pumpkins that didn’t glam up for the contest aren’t going to miss out; they get to swim with everyone in the pool! We’ll have pumpkins IN THE WATER all week long.

floating-pumpkin-funDo pumpkins float? We’ll find out!

It’s not just to play, we use the pumpkins to teach our swimmers about their own buoyancy. After all, we’re all about teaching swim lessons in a loving, fun environment. Children learn best when they are engaged in play, especially when they are learning new skills that might be challenging or scary. Can they teach a pumpkin to pass the float test?

So be sure to bring them to swim class all this week dressed for trick or treating, and if they come up to the front office, we’ll give them a special goodie bag! Check out the pumpkins while you’re there, and vote on your favorite. Don’t forget to talk about what they learned in swim class and ask them if pumpkins float!
