Pool Time

Tiny Eel

The Iowa City Eels share aquatic facilities with the public junior and senior high schools in the metro area as well as the recreation departments of both Coralville and Iowa City. We are very fortunate to be linked to several good facilities and to enjoy a positive working relationship with the schools and the cities involved. Nevertheless, practice schedules will need to be modified to accommodate the varied demand. Every effort will be made to notify Club members of any alteration in the practice schedule.
