A heated, Olympic size, eight lane swimming pool affords a breathtaking view of the mountain, soccer field, Aghia Paraskevi, and city of Athens. During the winter, the pool is enclosed to maintain year-round use with balanced air and water temperatures.
The pool facility is a “shared use” facility with Pierce and Deree academic and non-credit classes. Trained life guards are always on call when the facility is open for safety and to help with exercise programs and swimming techniques.
Newly renovated locker/shower rooms, with separate areas for men, women, boys and girls allow the Aquatics Facility to be used on a shared use basis for classes, athletics, recreation, and leisure. Popular aquatics activities include fitness and swimming classes, varsity and shoot-around water polo, and lap swimming. Student Government sponsored Dive-in Movie, water basketball and volleyball, snorkeling, skin diving and scuba, youth summer camp and sunbathing are all part of the aquatics facility schedule.
Long course: The swimming pool is normally set up long course to accommodate competitions and those who enjoy the serenity of long swims.
Short course: From time to time, the orientation is changed to short course style (lanes going across the width) to allow for more activities and classes.
Dive-in-movie: Student Government, professors, departments and other organizations are encouraged to use the swimming pool and deck for meetings, classes, events and socializing.

Summer Camp: Each summer the College sponsors a Youth Summer Camp for campers aged 6 to 12 years old. In addition to the children’s favorite activity of swimming, the camp offers tennis, soccer and other sports activities in the morning complemented by fun academic classes in the afternoon.
