Group fitness in the pool! Jump in for a workout that is 12 times more efficient in the water than on land! Offered several times a day, members use floats, belts, and resistance tools for a workout that leaves you wet without the sweat! The pool supports aching joints and muscles while lowering your body temperature and blood pressure – which allows you to work harder, longer (and burn more calories). Classes are offered six days a week. See our pool schedule for times.

 Mini Golf

Poolside Putt-Putt is FREE for Thorbeckes members, $4.17 + tax for non-members, $2 for youth non-members, and available during pool operating hours in the spring and summer.

Shuffle Board

Check out the shuffleboard outside the pool!
Use of area is free to members and is open during Aquatic Center reception hours. Equipment is rain-proof!

Pool Schedule

Swim Lessons

Sessions are subject to change to reflect current demand. A class requires a minimum of three students to proceed. When a minimum number is not met, classes may be combined in an effort to make as many classes available as possible.

If we are unable to move swimmers to fill a class, then sessions that do not meet the minimum participants will be shortened.

Please assume the lesson you registered for will proceed. You will be contacted ONLY if the class does not fill or is being combined with another class.

General registration is open until the Thursday prior to the start of the class. All swim lessons must be paid for upon registration. Phone registrations are only accepted with a debit/credit card payment. A waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian before the student is allowed to participate in the lesson.

Refunds are not given for personal reasons, i.e. changed mind, scared child, vacation, illness, etc. Refunds are ONLY given for cancellations made by Thorbeckes. By registering for lessons, you commit to the entire session. Classes cannot be “made up” if missed. If students miss a class, they will not be dropped from the session, they will just not be able to make it up.
