Oct 1: Rec Pool Now Open for Limited Hours
The Rec Center Leisure Pool is now open for limited hours, with enrollment for 1 hour time slots required. Max occupancy is 1 per lane (2 lane swimmers total), 4 in the leisure area, and 1 in the vortex. Lap swim (intended for swimming laps) is in one of two 25-yard lanes, the Leisure area (intended for recreation, aerobics, and water walking) is in the large open space closer to the outside wall, and the Vortex (the round section where there is a strong current, on request) is also available for recreation, aerobics, and walking/swimming against the current.
Come dressed to swim and bring your own towel. Photo ID required for entry. Face coverings required at all times when not using the pool or the pool deck shower. After you enter the facility, go directly to the pool (using the pool hallway next to the elevator). Before and after swimming, use the deck shower to rinse off. If you need the restroom, or to change after swimming, the family locker room in the pool hallway is available (shower is roped off).
Enroll for a Rec Swim time in person at the Front Desk, by phone at 581-1082, or via WebTrac. To learn how to enroll for a swimming session via WebTrac, visit https://umaine.edu/campusrecreation/webtrac/#swimming
