We practice at the Soderholm Family Aquatic Center located in "the Nick" next to the Kohl Center at 797 West Dayton Street on the campus of UW in Madison. The entrance you will use is located on the corner of Lake Street & West Dayton Street. Once you walk into the small lobby, head up the stairs to your left (next to the elevator) to the first set of doors on your right. Stay off the equipment until you meet your coach in the stands. Parents are not allowed on the pool deck nor are they allowed to coach from the stands. Once the lesson is over, please meet your diver in the lobby that you entered through.
Parking can be difficult. There are three pay garages within a two block radius. You may also wish to park on the street which is metered. If you are a university member with a parking pass, look for where your permit is acceptable to park. On UW basketball or hockey game days, please budget an extra 15 minutes to navigate the traffic.
