Hodag Pride: We’re open to the community
The School District of Rhinelander invites you to join us at the Aspirus Community Fitness Center and the Heck Family Community Pool. The District has entered into an agreement with the YMCA of the Northwoods to manage both areas. The Y will have fitness staff oversee the Aspirus Fitness Center and certified lifeguards at the Heck Family Community Pool.
The entrance for the Aspirus Fitness Center and the Heck Family Community Pool is Door #19 at Rhinelander High School. This entrance is located on the east side of the building (facing the practice football field). All visitors must register at the main desk, located in the Aspirus Fitness Center.
The monthly fee for the Aspirus Fitness Center and the Heck Family Community Pool is $15 for an individual and $25 for a family. Punch cards are also available for $3 per person per visit. Children between the ages of 12 and 17 may use the facility free of charge.
The first weekend of each month during the school year, the District will offer a “free weekend.” During these weekends, the public is invited to use the Aspirus Fitness Center and the Heck Family Community Pool free of charge. All visitors are required to register at the main desk. Registered visitors will have use of the men’s and women’s locker rooms. Everyone over the age of 12 is welcome. All visitors will participate in a fitness orientation, and guests ages 12 to 17 will need parental consent.
