The Foy Fitness & Recreation Center Pool, made possible through the generous support of John Foy (APSU alumnus, class of 1964), opened  May 12, 2008, and was formally dedicated in a special ceremony on Aug. 26. This outdoor pool is an exciting addition to campus recreation facilities is open seasonally, weather dependent. With the heating system, we are typically open mid April through early October. There are lanes for lap swimming, rope dividing shallow and deep ends of the pool, and the pool depth ranges 3-6 feet so diving is prohibited.
