How many lanes are open for rec swimming?
At most times there are plenty of lap lanes available for open recreation swim, however, during UC swim practice and other rentals, lane availability will be limited. Normally, there will be four to six lanes open for rec swimming.
Keating Aquatics Complex Lap Pool Schedule
The Keating Aquatic Center (KAC) standard lap pool configuration is the 25 yards short course layout, with lanes always available for lap swimming or open swim. It is important to recognize that the KAC lap pool serves many roles and many organizations; including being the home pool for the UC Varsity Swim team, a practice facility for the UC Water Polo Club, a classroom for the College of Education credit swim courses, as well as hosting numerous outside rentals. It is our goal to have as many lanes available for lap swimming as possible; however there will be times that these activities may limit the number of lanes available.
In order for Campus Recreation and its Maintenance Staff to provide the cleanest aquatic facilities possible, a new routine/preventative maintenance schedule has been developed. Currently the Leisure Pool and Whirlpool will close on Monday mornings from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., the Whirlpool will close on Thursdays from 1 - 5 p.m., and the Lap Pool will close on Wednesdays from 8 a.m. - 12pm.
