The Athletics-Recreation Center pool is home to the Valparaiso University swimming and diving program. Built in 1962, the pool is located beneath Gym 2 on the ground floor of the ARC.
A six-lane, 25-yard pool, it regularly houses anywhere from two to four home meets a year for the Crusaders. There are both one and three-meter diving boards at the north end of the pool. Locker room facilities are located directly off of the pool area, with the Valpo swim teams each having their own section within each locker room.
Seating provides for a couple hundred spectators at meets, with all of the seating located on the west side of the pool.
A new Colorado Timing System was installed in 2005, allowing for times of all lanes to be visible from all portions of the pool.
