tbfac icon
The popular Teen Nite series at Tie Breaker Aquatic Center returns in expanded fashion for 2018 in June and July, with nights separated by age divisions of 8th-10th graders and a separate night for Juniors and Seniors.  The first Teen Nite of the summer will be held on Thursday, June 28 for 8th-10th Graders.  On Friday, June 29 the park is open for Juniors and Seniors only.  In July the underclassmen have their night on July 26 and the upperclassmen on July 27.

Teen Nite hours are 7:30-10:30 pm with a $5.00 admission charge for the evening.  Teens must show proof of age with a valid driver’s license, Department of Motor Vehicle ID (available for non-drivers for $4.00), or a school ID.  A parent or guardian can also sign in the student at the park admission gate.

Music, water and concessions will be the highlights, along with the fact that Tie Breaker transforms into a teen-only facility.  Adults will not be allowed in the park, however, appropriate supervision will be provided by the Hopkinsville Police Department and regular water park staff.

“Teen Nites were a big success last summer,” according the Tab Brockman, Parks and Recreation Superintendent.  “We asked for student feedback and responded by separating the nights into appropriate school ages and grades.  And we really appreciate the YMCA operational staff working with us on this after-hours project to provide more opportunities for our youth to have more things to do.”

Special rules will be in effect again for Teen Nites to address safety while creating an environment teenagers will still enjoy. 

The age/ID requirement mandates proof of age between 14-18 years old, or proof of high school enrollment between 9th-12th grades.  Parents/guardians can also sign students in if they do not have a valid school ID.  No adults will be allowed into the park, but they may remain in the Tie Breaker parking lot.  Absolutely no re-admission once a patron has left the park, for any reason.  Supervision will be provided by Hopkinsville Police Department.  A DJ will be on hand and the concession stand will be open for food and drink purchases during the special event.  Tie Breaker season pass will be honored for admission to Teen Nite if it is in the student’s name.
