Come get your free pumpkin!  In order to be able to participate in AquaPatch you must be a member of the Student Recreation Center.  You will have the option of getting in the pool to get your pumpkin or asking one of our staff to do it for you.  We will allow each person to take 1 pumpkin with them.


Self-Directed Swim Challenges

Typically offered January-April, Swim the Pac-12 is a challenge to motivate swimmers of all levels to move to the pools for fitness. Participants can water walk, aqua-jog, or swim their way through the challenge – the main point is to get in the water and enjoy the benefits of swimming! Participants have twelve weeks, establish by UREC, to complete any of the routes through the Pac-12.  Distances have been calculated based on general distances from campus to campus.  Participants log their progress at each pool.  There are three routes to choose from: Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. When participants register online and track distances on the sheets provided in each pool, they will receive a prize for each distance they complete.  

Here are the distances: Beginner Intermediate Advanced
