The University Recreation Center, home of the Horned Frog swimming and diving teams, opened its remodeled doors in January 2003.

Improvements to the aquatic facilities included new offices, which overlook the pool for the TCU swimming and diving staff. The 25-yard pool is equipped with six lanes and an advanced Colorado Electric timing system and scoreboard. During competitions, the Rec Center seats up to 500 spectators in its elevated gallery.

Additionally, the Rec Center features an adjacent 22-foot diving well with two 3-meter maxi-flex cheesed diving boards as well as a 5-meter diving platform. Both pools sport underwater windows for stroke analysis by the Horned Frog coaching staff.

The renovation also included the addition of locker rooms for the student-athletes, which feature individual lockers, couches for lounging and television.

The Frogs visit the nearby Forest Park outdoor swimming facility as another practice venue. TCU takes advantage of the region's warm fall and spring by training in the spacious 8-lane, 50-meter pool.
