Sacred Heart Greenwich boasts a 25 yard indoor swimming pool, which underwent enhancements in 2017 that were generously underwritten by a Sacred Heart family. Swimmers benefit from the installation of a new Colorado Timing System with electronic touch-pads, digital pace clocks, a new scoreboard and an underwater sound system.
Athletes also have access to our 35,600 square foot athletic center designed for women’s sports which opened in September 2015.
