Department of Sports Facilities and Campus Recreation



You can't beat the benefits of swimming as a lifelong fitness activity.  And the facilities here at St. Cloud State University are some of the finest.

Swimming burns calories while it builds muscle mass and improves your endurance. That builds your cardio-respitory fitness.

Best of all, it's low impact and that means aerobic exercise that's easy on your joints.

We provide training for those who want to become certified in CPR, AED, Basic First Aid, and Lifegaurd Instruction & Training.
