This summer, dipping in to the CSUSB pool will make the summer a lot cooler.
“A lot of people go swimming during the summer, the pool can get a little crowded,” said Raulabel Gonzalez, the Sports and Facilities Coordinator.
Along with being open to students, it is also open to the public.
Pool hours are a little different in the summer. It’s open at noon every day and close at 7 p.m. on week days, and 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Closed on Sundays.
During the year, the pool is open for a few hours in the morning and a few at night. So the hours are much better in the summer time.
Swim lessons are also offered during the summer for anyone who would like to take them. It’s open to CSUSB students and the public.
The Recreational Center is also open for work out sessions all summer long. But the hours are a little more minimal than during the year.
Although it opens at the same time, the Rec Center will be closing down early.
Monday through Friday, they will be opening at 6am and closing down at 9pm. Also, on Friday through Sunday they open at 8am and close at 6pm.
So for all the people who like to work out late at night after they get off work, that will not be an option.
In past summers softball has been offered as an intramural sport but this year, because of budget cuts, it will not be offered.
“But the field is offered for facility use, so if anyone wants to hold their own league or game they would be able to do that and use the equipment, but they’d have to provide their own umpire”, said Gonzalez.
Although intramural sports will not be offered during the summer time, be on the lookout for the Late Night event that will be happening on September 20.
There will be free food, Inflatables, free massages, intramural tournaments, battle of the bands, a haunted hike, a photo booth, and lots of giveaways, to using the rec center’s work out machines.
This event is very fun and safe for everyone and usually has a very big turnout.
