Summer Pool Party for Tonight Is Still On

The Summer Pool Party scheduled for tonight, Thursday, July 28th, is still on.  The park district will send a message if the weather forecast changes (this is Illinois) and has to cancel.

Summer Pool Party - Thursday, July 28th from 7-9 p.m.

The Teutopolis Park District will be having a pool party at the Effingham Area Kluthe Memorial Swimming Pool this Thursday, July 28th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  The pool will be closed to the public for the sole use of the Teutopolis Park District. Admission is free !!! ... It's our way of saying "Thank You" to the Teutopolis Community, especially those who participate in our programs.

Prime2Power 2016, August 16 - November 3

The Teutopolis Park District is holding another "Prime2Power" program.  New or returning to exercise?  Not sure where to begin?  Prime2Power will teach you the proper way to perform exercises without the pressure of a fast paced class. This class is aimed for men and women at all levels and ages.  You can keep it basic or crank it up a notch.  Modifications are instructed.  You will learn the basic exercise building blocks and progress to more difficult exercise techniques.  The focus of the class will be a total body workout, including cardio, arms, abs and legs.  No muscles will be left untouched.  This class will build your confidence, lose inches, build lean muscle and ignite your life!

The program will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from August 16 through November 3, 5:15 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., in the Teutopolis Grade School gym.  The instructor will be Jen Thoele.

Registration is available online (see the "Online Registration" menu option) or the paper registration form can be downloaded (see the "Download Forms" menu option). Please note that the registration form is separate. The sign up deadline is August 7th.

Excessive Heat Warning

The Teutopolis Park District is aware of the Excessive Heat Warning for the next few days.  The park district does NOT cancel games due to the heat; however, if a parent strongly feels that his/her child should not play, that parent should contact the coach at least 2 hours prior to the game to let the coach know that his/her child will not be playing.  If the coach determines that the team does not have enough players to play the game, that coach should contact Kent Niebrugge, the Program Director, to cancel the game.


If a child is going to play, parents should take the proper precautions.  Each player should have a water bottle to stay hydrated.  A towel in a small cooler of ice water to wipe their face and arms down to stay cool is also a good idea. If a player begins to not feel well, that player should notify his/her coach immediately. The park district wants to give the kids the opportunity to play but, also wants the kids to be safe.  


Canceling a game is never an easy decision.  People get upset when you cancel a game.  People get upset when you don’t.  In this situation, the park district is letting the parents decide what is appropriate for their child.
