After its opening in 1997, Middlebury owns one of the top Division III swimming facilities in the country. The state-of-the-art 50-meter by 25-yard swimming pool is the home for Middlebury's men's and women's swimming and diving teams.
The pool has 18 lanes - 10 with competition timing capabilities - two one-meter diving boards and two three-meter diving boards. In addition to team competition, the facility is also used for recreational purposes and the home of the college's club water polo team. In October of 2013, the Colorado Timing system was replaced and a full color LED scoreboard system was installed. The pool, located directly behind the fitness center adjacent to the core of Middlebury's athletics facilities, holds approximately 1,000 spectators.
