McCoy Indoor Pools Closed Summer 2014

This summer, the McCoy Natatorium Instruction Pool and deck area will be completely retiled.

This will require the Natatorium to be closed beginning May 3, 2014. The pools are expected to reopen at the start of the fall Semester. (Note: Accommodations have been made to halt noisy construction during special events such as Sport Camps and Swim Meets).

Jackhammering of tile and concrete is expected throughout each day, requiring the construction crew to wear hearing protection. Moreover, dust and debris may not be exclusively contained within the Instruction Pool area. The noise and dust from demolition will require all three pools to close for the summer.

Expanded hours will be available at the White Building.

Summer Semester Passes will only be valid at the White Building Pool.

Faculty/Staff Annual Pass Holders may present their pass at either the White Building pool or at the Outdoor Pool during recreational swim times. The Indoor Pool Pass will be recognized this summer at the Outdoor Pool to help alleviate overcrowding of the White Building pool.

Community Annual Pass Holders may also present their passes to swim at the Outdoor Pool. The White Building Pool is not available to Community members.

As always, multi-pass tickets will be available for the Outdoor Pool when the pool opens for the season.

As we learn more information about this project, we will post updates online. We thank you for your understanding during the construction.

Spa Cleaning Mon/Wed and Fri Mar 28th

The pool and spa will continue to open at 7:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays. Additionally, Friday, March 28th the pool and spa will also open at 7:00 to allow staff to clean the spa prior to opening.

This will give staff the opportunity to properly drain and clean the spa and adjust pool chemicals prior to opening.

Because the spa will be fully drained, there will be a period of time each morning that the spa will be reheating. The spa will be available for use, but please keep in mind that it may not reach ideal temperatures until sometime in the afternoon.

We hope this adjustment provides you with a healthier and cleaner facility.
