Welcome to the Glenbrooke Outdoor Sports Center!

About Us

“It was in the late 1970s when a young Glenbrooke boy woke up and went to tell his mother about the dream that he just had. Seems that he was able to see what heaven looked like in his dream and heaven was Glenbrooke!”

A charming and delightful world all of its own, Glenbrooke truly is heaven on earth for youngsters of all ages. Now known as The Glenbrooke Outdoor Sports Center, this hidden gem was built in 1963 as the Glenbrooke Swim Club. In the 1970s tennis courts were added and now starting in the summer of 2021 Glenbrooke will have its own soccer field and soccer school. Our new soccer facility will be dedicated in June 2021 in Memory of Melissa Joy Molin who enjoyed playing soccer and swimming.

Situated on 12 picturesque acres Glenbrooke is home to two magnificent pools with tennis, soccer, basketball, pickle ball, horseshoes, ping-pong, double dutch jump rope, arts and crafts and lawn games galore to compliment all that the pools have to offer.

In addition to our first class swimming springboard diving tennis basketball scuba diving and jump rope lessons Glenbrooke will now be home to the Coerver® Connecticut/East Soccer School. Coerver® soccer training is currently in 29 countries with over 1.5 million players. The Coerver® curriculum has been acclaimed to be the worlds finest soccer teaching method for children ages 4 through 16. Tremendous importance is put forth to help build each child’s confidence with extra emphasis placed on developing good sportsmanship and strong character amongst all the players.

Glenbrooke is also excited to announce a BRAND NEW 8 week Recreation Program for boys and girls ages 6 through 13. The rec staff will provide supervision for lessons, teams and summer fun at Glenbrooke. Please see the rec program page for all the details.
