The KAC swimming and diving facility provides much-needed recreational swimming space for all at the College--and a home for the Kenyon Lords and Ladies national championship swim teams. Twenty-five yards wide by fifty meters long, the new pool has twenty short-course and nine long-course lanes. The aquatic center includes a state-of-the-art Colorado Timing starting and scoring system and full-color video scoreboard, a wet classroom, a climate-controlled spectator area that seats 370, a designated meet-manager's office, 3-meter and 1-meter diving boards, a high-quality sound system, and a whirlpool spa that seats twelve to fourteen.
Insider information: This is an exceptionally fast pool, designed to minimize turbulence through carefully calibrated depth and a special wide gutter construction. Coach Jim Steen, Athletic Director Pete Smith, and pool consultants Counsilman Hunsaker collaborated closely on every aspect of the pool's design, with an eye to creating a superb facility for competition.
