Lap Swim

Lap Swim is OPEN to students, faculty, staff, and dependents.

Lockers are available.

The pool is designed for lap swimming. From the time that we open until we close, you are able to swim laps. Regardless of what is going on in the pool, we will never close down lap swimming.

We offer the following equipment:

  • Kick Boards
  • Different-sized fins (16 years and older) 
  • Pull Buoys
  • Swim Belts

We do NOT provide goggles.

The temperature of our pool is kept around 81- 83 degrees. We keep it at this temperature for the comfort of our lap swimmers.
Our lap lanes are set up width-wise across the pool.
