Pidgeon Natatorium

Pidgeon NatatoriumThe Pool at Memorial Field House

Our competition pool, located in Memorial Field House, houses both the IUP men’s and women’s swimming team and the Indiana High School boys and girls swim team.

Throughout the year, several invitational events are held here for the surrounding NCAA and WPIAL swimming sections.

The natatorium was recently rechristened the Pidgeon Natatorium in memory of a great coach and friend to the sport of swimming and diving. We wish to extend our thanks to the Pidgeon family for their continued support of our aquatic program here at IUP.

Come support your teams, and enjoy this awesome sport from second-story, tiered balcony seating.
