Facilities & Hours of Operation

Venema Aquatic Center

Home to the Knights swim and dive teams the Venema Aquatic Center is a 50-meter pool with a moveable bulkhead. The bulkhead allows for multiple configurations: water polo, competitive 25 meter or 25 yard, youth swimming instruction, long course – 50 meter.  A soft-water diving system allows a 50/50 air-water mix for softer and safer landings in diving practice from either of the 1-meter or 3-meter diving boards. For instruction there is a “wet” classroom for easy movement to and from the pool and classroom. The Venema Aquatic Center seats roughly 500 spectators.
