Suit Up for Open Swim

‌‌One to One Fitness Center manages the Donnell Pool, which is available to CWRU ID holders and any non-CWRU One to One Fitness member who purchases a pool membership for open swim. 

Donnell pool is in the Veale Center Recreation Center (not in One to One Fitness). It is a short walk from One to One. It is a 6-lane, 25-yard pool that is 4 feet at the shallow end and 10 feet at the deep end. 

* If you or someone you know is interested in joining us as a lifeguard, contact us!

Open swim availability is dependent on the Veale Center hours and student lifeguard availability.
