Aquatics at Hickory

Open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, the pool at Hickory provides members with a refreshing space to swim, play and relax under sunny skies and colorful cabanas. The fan-shaped pool includes eight lanes and two wading zones, with a zero depth entry area and mushroom water feature. Children and young adults can choose from a variety of aquatic activities throughout the summer, from Hickory’s swim team and swimming lessons, to private pool parties. Located poolside is a playground and full-service Poolside Bistro restaurant, offering both indoor and outdoor seating for guests.

Swim Team

The Hickory Hammerheads kick off their season in May every summer. We offer two age groups 2(Ages 10 & Under, Ages 10 & Over) that practice multiple times throughout the week and finish with Fun Day Fridays together as a team. With multiple meets through July, we finish off the season with a championship meet that gives our Hickory kiddos a goal to strive for and enhance their skills to grow each year. 

Swim Lessons

Swim lessons are available all summer long! We have multiple instructors who are eager to teach all our members how to be comfortable in the water. For more information, please contact the Club at 417-866-4384.

Camp Hickory

Hickory brings the camp spirit to our club every summer for four weeks.
