Community Invited to Dive Underwater for Easter Eggs at WSU

OGDEN, Utah — The Weber State University Swenson Building pool will be filled with brightly colored Easter eggs for Campus Recreation’s fifth annual egg dive, March 25 from 4-7 p.m.

Hundreds of plastic eggs will be poured into the pool for participants to jump in and collect. Some eggs will float on the surface of the water, while others will be weighted to sink to the bottom of the pool.

Kids from 1-17 years old and WSU students of all ages are invited to the event. All children under age 7 must have an adult in the water with them.

Swimmers will be divided into five different age groups, so everyone has a fair chance to collect eggs. Each age group will have a turn to dive for eggs and compete for prizes.

“I’m excited to see families and students getting in the pool and having fun together,” said Rebecca Mabile, WSU aquatics and safety coordinator. “We have a giant bin of eggs to use, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Winners will be the three swimmers with the most eggs in each group. Prizes include goggles, towels and gift cards to local restaurants and family entertainment venues. All swimmers also have a chance to enter raffle drawings and enjoy free snacks.

“It’s a little more exciting to play in the pool while you collect Easter eggs,” Mabile said. “When you collect eggs in a park, there may be a small prize in each, but here, there is a chance to get bigger and better prizes that don’t fit in a little egg.”

The egg dive costs $5 per person. To register for the event, visit weber.edu/aquatics/eggdive.html.
