 Make an Aquatics Reservation

Make a Reservation: This system is separate from your MyHoustonian login and you will need to register through the "Not Registered?” button before reservations can be made. Please note, this is the same system utilized in our Youth Department, so if you are already registered for this system you may use the same credentials. Only (1) Member number and password are necessary for everyone on your membership to make reservations. If you cannot make your scheduled reservation, please cancel through the reservation system under "My Reservations" by pressing the red minus button.  Resort, Garden and Sports Pool reservations are still required. If you don’t have a reservation but would like to swim laps check with our staff at the aquatic entrance to see if there is a lane open. 

Swim lessons are available by calling 713.263.6563. 

To reserve a spot in one of our Adult SwimFit or Water Fitness swim classes, please use the MindBody App (Group Exercise will be using this as well.) Reservations may begin to be made 6 days prior. See below for more details on booking a swim class. 

General Reminders about Aquatics:

  • Reservations are for 55 minutes in the Sports Pool and 2 hrs. 20 mins. in the Garden Pool (adult only) and the Resort Pool
  • Adults may have TWO future reservations at a time. Once you use one, you will be able to create a new one (the next day, after your completed reservation) so you can always have two.
  • A parent may make a reservation for a lap lane in the Sports Pool for a child that is 12 years or older and is Youth Certified.
  • April 2021 Update: Sports Pool Reservations, Lanes 6 through 10 are designated as "open lanes,” where reservations are not needed for use. There are no time restrictions except that the lanes must be cleared five minutes before a scheduled class. Anyone using the lanes must be prepared to share a lane. Lanes 1 through 5 are designated as  "reservation only” lanes which will follow the same 55-minute reservation protocol that has been in place. The lane reservations will be set for ½ of a lane instead of a full lane so two Members can share a lane. If you want a full lane to yourself, you may use two of your available reservations at one time, reserving both sides of the lane. It will also be feasible to reserve ½ of a lane for two consecutive time slots if you are wanting to swim for more than 55 minutes.
  • Sports Pool reservations will automatically be canceled 15 minutes after the start of a reservation (30 minutes after for Garden or Resort pool reservations) if someone does not check-in. Walk-ins may utilize any reservation spaces that open up 15 minutes after the start of a Sports Pool reservations and 30 minutes after the start of a Resort Pool or Garden Pool reservation (Resort/Garden Pool reservations are only required Fri. - Sun.).
  • Towels are available.
  • Bring your own swim gear and goggles, community loaner gear is not available.
  • Pool Reservations includes use of the Hot Tub. There is a limit of four people in the Hot Tub at one time, visits must be limited to 15 min or less.
  • Cancellations should be made via the Aquatics Reservation System by clicking the red minus next to the reservation, under "My Reservations." We ask that you kindly cancel three hours in advance to allow someone else to potentially reserve the spot.
  • Kickboards and Pull Buoys to borrow under the right side of the blue steps from the building to the pool.  Please return them to the Check-In table so they can be sanitized after each use. 

The MindBody app is used to book spots in ALL onsite Group Exercise and Aquatics classes.
