Pool & Sauna

Pool users: beginning February 4, 2019, all open and lap swimming will be suspended for one year.

February 4 through December 2019

The CRC will have reduced pool hours. Open and lap swimming will be suspended.

Evergreen student programs, local school programs, and rentals will continue. The CRC, including the sauna, will continue to operate as usual.

The Evergreen Swim Club will continue to offer a Master Swim Program, from 5:30 am to 7:30 am, for those who want to use our pool through this contracted program.

The scaled back operations will not impact new and contracted rentals, or our summer camp program.

Reason for the Reduction in Pool Hours

Operating the pool has required 25 lifeguards. The program was no longer able to operate in a sustainable manner. We have decided to pause the operation now and assess what we need to do to best serve the needs of the Evergreen community.

Future of the Pool

An Aquatics Program Development working group will identify options for a robust aquatics program that meets the needs of our students, community members, partner organizations, and campus renewal.

During the evaluation and planning process, we will seek input from a wide range of campus and community stakeholders.
