About our Pool

The Ned E. Shott Natatorium & Swimming Pool is a one-half Olympic size pool (75’ x 40’) complex with six racing lanes. It is located on the first floor of the Shott Physical Education Building and home to the Men’s & Women’s Bluefield State Swimming Teams. This beautiful, recently renovated pool is heated and equipped with pumps and a state-of-the-art filtration system. It has safety and recreational equipment to assist all of the needs of our students and community patrons.

The Office of Student Activities look forward to accommodating all your pool needs through normal hours of operation, classes, private parties, and special needs. The lifeguard staff are American Red Cross certified in Lifesaving, CPR, and first aid and are excited about the opportunity to work with community patrons throughout the year.
