Recreational aquatics provides a safe and inclusive environment for all, and we promote private swim lessons, recreation classes, special events, open rec swim, as well as job opportunities.

Rec Swim is offered at two outdoor locations on the Stanford campus; the Avery Aquatic Center and Avery Recreation Pool. The Avery Aquatic Center is a 50 meter pool setup in long course meters. Avery Recreation Pool is a 50-meter pool setup in short course yards, located on the west side of campus at the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center
