Wolff-Zackin Natatorium

The Wolff-Zackin Natatorium is home to the University of Connecticut men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs.

The 39,000-square foot natatorium provides one of the finest facilities on the East Coast. Both the men’s and women’s swim teams are the only varsity programs housed in the facility.

The Natatorium was built in part of the university’s $28 million Sports Center Complex, which also includes the 171,000-square foot Harry A. Gampel Pavilion, home to the UConn men’s and women’s basketball programs.

It features several high-tech innovations making the pool one of the fastest in the region. The facility is a 50-meter “stretch pool” that includes two moveable bulkheads, allowing the pool to assume several different configurations.

The standard collegiate length of 25 yards can be used in an all-deep-water course in the Wolff-Zackin pool, featuring eight-foot wide lanes and a flow-through bulkhead. A second bulkhead provides an enclosed warm-up and warm-diving area, while also allowing for a separate diving area. The diving area includes two one-meter and two three-meter maxiflex springboards on Dura firm standards.

Some of the other features of the Wolff-Zackin Natatorium include a state-of-the-art Colorado Electronic Timing System IV, men’s and women’s team record boards, a videotape replay system and an underwater viewing window.

In addition, there are individual coaches’ offices, men’s and women’s varsity locker rooms and visiting team locker rooms. The spectator area can accommodate 800 Husky fans.

Adjacent to the Natatorium is Brundage Pool which is available to UConn coach Goldberg and his staff to enhance the Husky training program. Between the two pools, the Huskies have 18 lanes available to them for training purposes. The recent $14 million remodeling of Connecticut’s athletic facilities included complete renovation of Brundage Pool, extending and expanding the great facilities UConn has to offer its swimming and diving programs.

As part of the remodeled athletic complex project, UConn swimmers have the use of a new, state-of-the-art 6,000-square foot weight room, featuring all of the latest in strength and conditioning equipment. The Huskies also have daily access to a spacious athletic training facility with the latest technology for rehabilitating athletic injuries.
