Throughout the years, different pools were used for waterpolo activiites in and around Pittsburgh.
In 2013, American Waterpolo played a bigger role and provided even more equipment and was the source for the necessary insurance for the camp.
As part of the insurance, the facilities used by the camp were documented. All of these pools are NOT slated for use on a regular basis. However, we hope to use the pools in this list in the near future. The swim pools include, in no particular order:
