    Pool Hours

    We have two swimming pools that are available for use, a 25 yard by 50 meter competition pool, and the Recreation Pool, which is complete with a water-volleyball net and two basketball goals, and has a maximum depth of 4 feet. The Recreation Pool closes for part of the winter, but the Competition Pool is open year round. We also have diving boards on our competition pool, and they are available for use at designated times.

    Swim Lessons

    We offer swim lessons for every age and skill level, from parent & me courses to adult lessons. Our lessons are available in groups, private, or semi-private. All of our lesson options are available year-round, for private and semi-private lessons we work around your schedule.

    Pool Policies

    We strive to provide a safe and clean environment for our patrons. As a result, we have a set of policies that we feel will ensure that our facility remains safe and clean, and will optimize the swimming experience for our patrons.


    We host several certification courses throughout the year. If you are interested in lifeguard certification or becoming a water safety instructor, we have what you are looking for.


    We are always looking for qualified lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors. Contact the Aquatics Director, Courtney Hill, at ch58@rice.edu if interested in applying for an Aquatics position.
