About Aquatics

we are #bullwatch


We provide aquatic opportunities to the USF community regardless of age, background, or ability with a safe and engaging environment. Visit us at our indoor multipurpose natatorium, or our FIT leisure pool in The Village.

We strive to provide our users with a safe and engaging environment at our aquatic facilities. Our facilities are supervised by American Red Cross Lifeguards, who are continually trained to meet the highest standard as a professional rescuer.

We offer a variety of opportunities for USF Bulls and the community to engage in our program through either American Red Cross courses, SCUBA classes, log rolling, pool volleyball and pool golf. In addition, we also host a variety of speciality events, so make sure to check in on our social media pages for more fun and upcoming events!

The hours at the our facilities can vary depending on holidays, facility closures, and special events, so please check our main page about possible closures. Follow @usfrecwell for weather updates and closures.
