Rice Aquatics has continued new swimmer evaluations throughout the year. Evaluations are on a per-swimmer basis and can be scheduled by emailing the following:
- Swimmer's Full Name
- Date of Birth and Age
- Summer Swim Team (if applicable)
- Background in Swimming
- How you heard about Rice Aquatics
- Contact Info (Phone, Cell, Email and Address)
You will receive an email within 72 hours with your swimmer's evaluation date and time. All swimmers must set up an evaluation time prior to the evaluation dates. We do not be accepting walk-ins the day of the evaluations. In your confirmation email you will receive information about cost, practice times, parking, what to expect and other helpful tips.
Parking for Evaluations
Parking for evaluations is available in West Lot 1 for $1 per 20 minutes (credit card only). From there you will have a short walk to the Gibbs Recreation Center. A map is available here for the parking lot and pool location.
Registration for Returning Age Group Swimmers
Returning Swimmer Registration is done through our online registration forms. An in-water evaluation has to be completed prior to starting our online registration for new swimmers.

Parking on the Rice campus is at a premium. You can pay as you go in the central parking garage across the street from the recreation center for $1 per 12 minutes (cash or credit card), or at North Lot at entrance 20 off Rice Blvd. for $1 per 12 minutes (credit card only), or at the West Lot 1 in front of the Alice Pratt Brown Building for $1 per 20 minutes (credit card only).

Aquatic Center Use
Your Rice Aquatics membership gives you access to the pool and locker room facilities for our scheduled practice time. The recreation center has a limited number of community memberships available for use of the whole center at anytime. Our use of the aquatic center is a privilege. We ask that you keep your use of the facility limited to our practice times.
