Import Lap Swim Announcement
On Monday, March 30th, the IU Natatorium will begin a $20 million renovation project. Since we are still in the design and bid process, many decisions are still being made about all parts of this project. However, we do have a good idea of each of the phases and which parts of the facility will be impacted.
The competition pool and diving well renovation will begin during the first phase. While the competition pool area is closed and under construction, we are fortunate enough to utilize the instructional pool. That said, all user groups, members, and teams will have to make some sacrifices to make this work for everyone during this time.
We will offer lap swim in the instructional pool, for limited times throughout the day. However, based on usage, we plan to offer some additional times in the evening and on Saturday.
To meet the needs of all user groups, we will need to drop the temperature to 82 degrees. This is cooler than we normally keep the instructional pool, but warmer than the main competition pool. Also, during most of this project, the instructional pool will be long course (50 meters).
The first and second phases of the project will conclude in early November 2015. We will reopen in November for normal business until March of 2016 when the third phase of the project will begin. The main competition pool and diving well will not reopen for regular usage until after the USA Diving Team Trials in 2016.
As with any project, there are many moving parts. When we receive concrete information, we will pass it along in a timely manner.
Below is the tentative lap swim schedule starting April 13th:
Monday – Friday 5:30 am to 7:00 am (4 LC lanes available)
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 7:00 am to 9:00 am (3 LC lanes available)
Monday - Friday 9:00 am to 2:00 pm (4 LC lanes available from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm)
Monday - Friday 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm (3 LC lanes available)
Monday – Thursday 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm * (3 LC lanes available)
Saturday 9:00 am to 11:00 am* (Start date: April 11th - 3 lanes available)
*subject to change based on usage.
