Aquatic Center

web sullivanThe Sullivan Aquatic Center opened after renovations in October 2008. The pool is now 52 meters by 25 yards (a little larger than an Olympic sized pool due to the potential future purchase of a bulkhead). 

The facility is available for use by current SCU students, faculty and staff, and Malley Center members. Seven lap lanes are regularly available for open recreation lap swimming & we have one shallow lane for water walking. On the pool deck we have kick boards & pull bouys available for use for lap swimmers. There are also six diving blocks that are used by Club Swim during practices and swim meets.

The pool is used by the Men's and Women's Intercollegiate Water Polo teams for their practices & home games. These do not impact the seven lap lanes except when the teams host their annual tournaments or league championships. The Campus Recreation swim & triathlon club sports use the pool for practices. These two programs do take up three of the lap lanes during their practices. In addition, the pool is used by our Bronco Kidz All Sports Camp program.
