Men's & Women's Swimming and DivingDirections
The Aquatic & Fitness Center Phase II projected was completed in May of 2004. This project added a three-court gymnasium, an indoor walking/running track, additional multipurpose rooms, a cycling room and expanded free weight and cardiovascular exercise areas.
The state-of-the-art facility marks a substantial improvement in training facilities for the Cavaliers, who lacked an Olympic-sized pool in their prior facility. The Aquatic Center provides a further boost to the success of the Cavaliers, previously one of only two teams to finish in the national Top 20 without an Olympic-sized pool.
In the summer of 2009, a 5-meter platform tower was added to the facility, adding a missing piece instrumental to the growth and development of the UVa diving program.
The Aquatic and Fitness Center served as the site for the Men's and Women's ACC Swimming and Diving Championships in 1998, 2001 and 2004.
