Competition Pool Project

Due to mandatory upgrades and construction that will improve the quality of the facility, the FitRec Competition Pool will be closed from approximately July 5 - September 2, 2013. These dates are subject to change.

We have reserved time at the Faneuil Pool in the Case Center to be used for open swim and select aquatics programming. The Case Center, located at 285 Babcock Street, is just a few minutes walk from FitRec. This facility will be staffed by FitRec aquatics staff.

The Recreation Pool will not be affected by the construction and will operate on a normal summer schedule during this time. Locker rooms at FitRec will also not be impacted by the construction in the Competition Pool area.

We realize this closure requires a change to your routine and we will work to provide you with the most accurate and helpful information. Thank you for your understanding and patience while we work to provide the best possible facility to our valued members and participants!

Faneuil Pool at Case Center

Locker Rooms
Lockers are available in both locker rooms but members must bring their own locks and belongings cannot be left overnight. The restrooms for the men are located in shared hallway and are not inside the locker room. There are no private showers or saunas available at Case Center.

Accessibility - Pool and Locker Rooms
The pool lift will be set up by Case Center staff and will remain in place and available throughout the duration of FitRec programming. Both locker rooms have stairs immediately leading from the pool to the locker room. Members requiring accessibility accommodations can use the elevator located in the pool hallway near the field and then also use the staff locker room to change and shower.

No towel service will be provided at Case Center. Members should bring their own towels. Lifeguards will have plastic bags available for members to carry home their wet belongings.

Parking near Case Center is extremely limited and there may be times Babcock Street is closed to vehicular traffic for the nearby construction. We recommend parking at Agganis Arena and walking to Case Center. Members have been given permission to walk through Nickerson field to reach Case Center if the gates are open.

FitRec building and swim policies will be enforced including supervisor of minors, the swim cap policy and photography and cell phone restrictions. FitRec will provide kickboards and pull buoys for members and the lifeguard staff is responsible for cleaning up this equipment and storing it at the end of their shift. The diving boards are off limits to all FitRec staff and members.

Questions or Concerns
Any issues should be addressed with the FitRec professional staff or the FitRec lifeguards on duty at Faneuil Pool. If you have a question or concern, please contact the FitRec Aquatics team at
