    In November the Board of Trustees approved moving forward on a major lighting renewal project for the Robert I Bickford Natatorium. The replacement of lighting systems for the main pool, training pool and hot tub is to take place during the Spring 2019 semester. Those facilities will be closed during construction.  A start date for the work has not yet been set; please visit this page for updates. The work is expected to take between 6 and 8 weeks to complete.

    Prince George's County High School Swim Team practices began November 15th. Be prepared for limited lap lanes starting at 3:45 PM.

    Beginning November 15th the Natatorium will close at 3:45 PM on Fridays for PGCPS swim team practice.

    Beginning December 8th the Natatorium will close at 12:30 PM on Saturdays for PGCPS swim meets.
