Always check the Patty Pool schedule  for details on specific days. Meets and special events often change the schedule. 

  1. Conditioning Lap swim (full laps only) - Open to Nanook Recreation members and day pass holders
  2. Masters -  adult competitive conditioning. This is a structured workout and required additional fees to the organization. Details at
  3. Rec swim (families welcome), some lane lines removed
  4. CTC class is a Recreation for credit academic class hosted by UAF's CTC campus
  5. Nanooks - UAF Varsity swim team practice, public not allowed
  6. SST (Stingrays Swim Team) - Youth team practice, public not allowed -

TEMPERATURE: UAF Patty Pool is set to 79.5F. This is an ideal temp for conditioning swim but not ideal for young kids just splashing around. This is why you see a mostly lap/team swims on our schedule compared to Borough pools which has more Open Rec times.
