South Campus Natatorium Addition
In Response to well-defined Needs
The swimming pool fulfills a major curriculum and safety need for the District since safety swimming, particularly at the freshman and sophomore levels, was identified as a major program requirement.
In addition, the pool at the District’s other Campus was small, overused and did not meet current depth codes for their diving and water polo programs; the fact that students had to practice and compete at other community pool facilities meant that many students were subject to extreme practice hours and competitions in empty facilities.
The new Natatorium boasts a double length, six-lane swimming pool that maximizes program use for student and community members of all swimming abilities. The facility provides for advanced swimming, interscholastic swimming, diving and water polo programs as well as kayaking and scuba diving curriculums.
Designed to Compete
The Natatorium gutter system design allows the water volume to remain constant so that the wave level is kept to a minimum.
This technology creates a high competition environment that enables the swimmers to increase their speed.
The easy access walk-in pool allows for special needs students and elderly community members to enter the pool without major assistance and provides an excellent training area for novice swimmers.
