Welcome to the State College Area High School Natatorium.
The natatorium was built in 1989 and has been in full use since January 25, 1990 with an average of 300 people per day. The pool is the venue for a variety of curriculum activities, intramural programs, athletic events and fitness opportunities.
Some examples of activities that are offered at the Natatorium are: Physical Education classes for grades 3, 4, 7, 9, 11 and 12, Swimming and Diving teams, Faculty, Staff and Student open lap swim, public swimming lessons conducted by Centre Region Parks and Recreation, Aquatic Certification classes (WSI and Lifeguard Training), Aquatic cross-training for sports teams and school group rentals.
The Natatorium pool is 75'2" long by 45' wide. The minimum depth is 3'6" and the maximum depth is 12'6". The pool is equipped with a large bleacher area for spectators and two locker rooms. Each locker room consists of 40 lockers and 10 showers. There is also one handicap shower in each of the locker rooms. Hair dryers are provided in both locker rooms. We ask that patrons do not bring their personal hair dryers or curling irons to use in our locker rooms due to the electrocution hazard.
The pool water temperature is kept at an average of 84 degrees when swim team season is not in session. During the swimming and diving season, the pool water temperature is kept at an average of 81 degrees.
We require that all swimmers shower before entering into the pool water. Showering helps to keep our pool water clean by rinsing off any dirt, make up, sweat and soaps that may be remaining on the body or within the bathing suit.
