Our pool is located within the High School, 3885 Bender Road. Please enter the building through the main front entrance using the north parking lot off of Green Lake Road. The pool locker rooms will be down the first hall on the right.

There is lap swim, open swim, water aerobics and swim lessons during the school year. In order to keep the pool open we need minimum participation. If we have very little participation, the pool will close. This schedule is subject to change without prior notification.

All pool events are cancelled immediately in the event there is a tornado watch/warning or school closes due to inclement weather.

Due to outstanding response, we are starting a swim club again in Middleville.  The swim club will be a combined team with the Hastings Hammerhead swim club.  The new swim club at Middleville, The TK Hammerheads, will practice at the TK High School pool every Monday from 7-8 pm.

 Swimmers can also swim at the Hastings pool on Monday nights and Wednesday nights. 

The TK swim club with also have the option to enter swim meets as a joint Hammerheads team, but meets are optional. 

To join the swim club, you must be at least 8 years old and able to swim a full length of the pool without any stopping or assistance. 

There is a small fee for the club, but swimmers who think they might be interested can swim for two weeks and see if they enjoy it before having to pay.

The coach at the TK practices will be Alexa Schipper, who swam for the TK/Hastings high school swim team and has been an assistant coach with the Hammerheads for a several years. 

Mike Schipper is the head coach of the Hammerheads and will be overseeing all of the practices.  

If you have any questions please contact Mike Schipper at


Also, from 8-8:30pm every Monday night following practice there will be fun time open swim for any kids of any age whether they are on the team or not.  There is no cost for this fun time open swim.
