The RUHS Aquatic Center is an outdoor 15-lane, 25-yard pool with covered bleacher seating for 200 spectators. Built for the RUHS Seahawk Swim and Water Polo Teams and opened in the Fall of 2010, this pool is also open to the public on the weekends year-round, and during the weekdays in the Summer.

 

The shallow end has both stair and ramp access with one lane from 3’6” to 4'6" deep, one lane from 4’6” to 7' deep, and the remaining 13 lanes are all 7’ deep. The pool's nearly half a million gallons of water are heated to 80 F year-round.
