The pool was built as part of the original Warner Palaestra Athletic Complex in 1973. The Warner Palaestra Pool includes a regulation sized, eight-lane, 25-yard pool, one-meter and three-meter spring boards and a five-meter platform. Johnnie swimmers and divers have been a vital part to the success of Saint John’s Athletics and continue to be.

The Warner Palaestra Pool is also open to club sport and general student use during the course of the academic year. Saint John’s Water Polo has seen significant success in the Warner Palaestra Pool in recent years.

CSB/SJU and outside groups interested in renting/reserving the pool should contact Mike Johnson at 320-363-3296 or [email protected].


Pool is closed for the summer. Regular hours will resume in the fall.
