The St. Charles
pool, located behind the school, is an indoor, 25-yard, competition pool with six lanes, flags, and starting blocks. The building is illuminated by a skylight, heated during the winter, and
air-conditioned during the summer. Pull buoys, kickboards, and paddles are available. Men’s and Women’s locker rooms have toilets, showers, hairdryers, full-length mirrors, sinks, and
lockers (bring your own lock). Parking is free and abundant, and the post-practice commute into downtown Columbus only takes five minutes on Broad Street. Pool opens 15 minutes before
practice — enter via the right-hand doors at the top of the short flight of stairs from the parking lot.
The Sharks practice
year round at St. Charles pool on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings, and also on Saturday mornings during the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters.
