Our pool has a variety of fun and recreational activities for everyone. Be it a private party for your child’s birthday, a fun-filled afternoon of Ship Making or Noodle-Olympics, an evening of roasting marshmallow to make s’mores followed by tie-dying tee-shirts. Perhaps you are looking more for the fitness side of things, if so other than lap swimming and based upon members interest, we also have offered water aerobics, pool side yoga and group and/or private swim lessons. If you are looking for an adult night out, we have the perfect solution for you, about once per month we offer an adults only swim complete with cannon ball contests and adult beverages. As you can see, Forestbrooke Pool has its members covered on all kinds of summer fun for families, couples, and individuals. We hope that you will join us for summer 2017!
Forestbrooke’s swim and dive team (Forestbrooke Athtletic Swim Team, or F*A*S*T for short) was created in 1960, the same year as Forestbrooke Pool itself was opened, and it adopted the Flying Fish as its mascot. The team is a founding member of the Washtenaw Interclub Swimming Championships (WISC). For summer of 2016 the team was Division III within WISC, with the swim team being coached by Anna Li Aguirre and Eli Cohen and the dive team being coached by Will Brenner and Ben Brenner. For the 2017 season the team will be moving up to Division II within WISC due to an amazing 2016 season under the excellent coaching of our awesome coaches. Please see our Swim and Dive Team page for more information regarding the team, and our Staff page for more information on the coaches. You do not have to be a member of Forestbrooke Pool to join our Swim and/or Dive team, however there is a reduced fee to join with membership to the pool.
Forestbrooke Pool is a 501c(3) non-profit that is run by a board of volunteers, traditionally people who have been part of the pool community for a while, who were elected to the board by the members of the pool. In addition, it has a staff of managers, head lifeguard, lifeguards, coaches, swim instructors, fitness instructors, etc. many of whom are high school and college students from the area and who are often long-time members of Forestbrooke Pool as well. There are also volunteer positions available for all members of the pool to help out with the various activities and events that we offer throughout the season. Please see our staff page to learn more about this year’s staff. Staff page will be updated for spring 2017.
