Koret Health and Recreation Center
San Francisco, CA 94117 KHRC@usfca.edu (415) 422-6811
The Koret Center features a 50 meter by 25 yard pool set in the center of the facility. There are no additional fees for lap swim, but general building entry fees do apply.
Pool average temperature: 81.5° (Range 80°-82°, 79° for swim meets)
Lap lanes will be open during all pool hours, although the number of lanes available will vary depending on other programs in progress, (i.e., during all swim lesson programs the shallow lanes will be closed to anyone other than those enrolled in the lessons). The pool will have limited lanes from 4-6 p.m., Monday-Friday due to swim team practices and other activities.
Circle swimming is mandatory during crowded times. Lap lane schedules are available at the Front Desk.
Children 12 years of age or older, who are competent lap swimmers, may lap swim when accompanied in the pool area by a supervising adult.
There is only ONE shallow lane at the Koret Center pool. This lane is often blocked for swim lessons, trainings, or programs. Please take note if you plan to use this lane. There is a white board updated weekly (in between locker rooms on the pool deck) with lane closures in addition to the lap pool schedule.
25 yards = 1 length
71 lengths = 1 mile
50 yards = 1 length
35 lengths = 1 mile
*Long course set up is NOT Olympic size. The shallow end is open for use, so we have a 50 YARD not 50 Meter set up.
Please note, swim practice takes place 4-7:30pm Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, as well as 6-8am Wednesday, Thursday & Friday so there will only be 2-3 available patron lanes. Other programs will use lanes so be fully prepared for circle swim at all times.
