University of North Texas
POHL RECREATION CENTER & PEB NATATORIUM
Swimming instruction takes place in the Norval Pohl Student Recreation Center on the campus of the University of North Texas in Denton. Overnight campers are housed in the UNT dormitories, located only steps from the pool, and meals are served in the dining hall at the dormitory. All campers will be supervised 24 hours a day by the camp staff and on site medical care is available at the UNT Student Health Center located in the building next to the Recreation Center.
The Pohl Recreation Center offers an eight-lane pool that serves as the home facility for the Mean Green Swimming and Diving program. The team also uses the adjacent PEB Natatorium, which has the diving well that features two 1-meter and one 3-meter springboards for the North Texas Diving Team, and another six-lane 25-yard pool that is used for training by the swimmers.
The Nike Swim Camp at the University of North Texas is open to any and all entrants. For your safety and benefit, we recommend you have competitive swimming experience (e.g. U.S.S. age group, national qualifiers, high school swimmers, or summer league swimmers) and can swim at least 50 meters in all four competitive strokes: fly, back, breast and freestyle.
