The Decatur Township Natatorium is located inside Decatur Central High School. Our entrance is Door 16 on the south side of the building, facing the football stadium. Upon entering the building, the natatorium will be to the right of the main hallway. 

The eight (8) lane competition pool has a movable bulkhead that allows for training in 25y or 25m, while separating the competition pool from the diving well. Locker rooms are available for patron use before and after your visit. Patrons are responsible for bringing their towels and own lock to secure valuables.

Our level structure is progressive and will work toward having swimmers be able to complete one length of the pool! Classes meet during the months of March-October!

  • Competitive Swimming Program: Ages 6 and older who can swim one length of the pool comfortably are eligible to join the Decatur Township Aquatic Club!
