About Aquatics


Welcome to Aquatics!

Dive in. Make a splash. It's time to get wet. SouthREC's outdoor pool and pool deck are the place to be. Take advantage of our youth and adult swim lessons; American Red Cross certifications in lifeguarding, CPR and First Aid; or better yet, get in some laps.

Come to have fun. The pool is home to Campus REC's club sport water polo, synchronized swimming and TriCats; plus you can join an intramural pool basketball team, try your hand (or feet) at log rolling, get SCUBA certified, do some slack lining, attend a "dive-in" movie or just lounge around on the pool deck.
