Built in 1982, the pool contains six 25 meter swimming lanes, two 1 meter diving boards and 1 3 meter diving board, and has seating for up to 450 spectators. The pool is used primarily for GVSU swimming and diving team practice, but is also used for open swim, lap swim, classes, and community programs. Current Michigan competitive standards require a depth of seven feet at the starting blocks, which have placed limitations on home competition and events. GVSU still hosts regular season swimming and diving meets but they move their larger meets and championship events to Jenison High School. Pool use is free for GVSU students, faculty/staff, and for all current membership card holders. Non-members can purchase a daily user pass for $5.
Open lap/swim times are limited so please check the Hours of Operation Page or contact the Recreation Center front desk at 616-331-3313 prior to your visit.
