Natatorium

 

For five decades K’s natatorium has been the proud home of eight National Champions, two National Divers of the Year, 32 MIAA championship teams, and countless Hornet scholar-athletes. Your support today can help our program’s new home open its doors on October 10, 2020.

The Board of Trustees has approved plans to build our swimming and diving teams a new $14.7 million natatorium in which to continue our tradition of excellence. A new 28,000 square foot space – with ten short course lanes and a separate diving area – will make K more competitive, yield future outstanding swimmers and divers to the College, and allow us to schedule more, and higher quality, dual meets.

Fundraising efforts and the College’s commitment to borrow currently total $14 million, leaving $700,000 to raise this year. Please help make the final kick to the wall by making a gift to celebrate your time as a K athlete or honor a teammate, coach, or family member through a naming opportunity!
