Pool Description

Opened in 2005, the Common Ground Natatorium features an eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool with bleacher seating for 400 spectators. 

Additional crash area in gym, near the pool, for swimmers and parents. Swimmers MUST use crash area and may not use pool deck or viewing stands.  Live video streaming of the meet is provided in the crash area.  This space does tend to be cool in winter, please plan accordingly.

Visitor to the Midwest All Star meet may purchase a guest pass for $8.15.  A guest pass allows the purchaser to use the fitness center and game room for an entire day.


If you have multiple family members attending for the day or they will be coming several days we have a frequent visitor card available for purchase.  The Frequent Visitor card costs $30.50 and has 5 punches on it.  One punch is good for one person all day.  Multiple people can use the pass, they will just need to use one punch per person.
