Aquatics Center: Indoor Pool
After much anticipation and patience the Aquatics Center is open after a design build renovation.
The purpose of this $1.5M CNIC design build project was to renovate the existing roof and complete major facility upgrades including new wall structures, an ADA compliant chair lift, and 6 re-tiled swim lanes. A specialized Mortex flooring around the pool area has been added to enhance health and safety in addition to a new integrated HVAC and de-humidifier system for better heating and ventilation. You’ll notice a complete overhaul to the shower areas including ceramic walls, ceiling tiles, doors, windows and counters. To enhance your experience, MWR has installed new lockers, ladders, starting blocks, lifeguard chairs and other amenities.
The Aquatics Center has everything you need for a complete water-fitness workout- lap swim, Command PT, PRT, Navy 2nd swim testing, and swim team practice. If lap swimming is not enough, you’ll find our new core workout station with a pull-up bar, stationary bikes, row machine, kettle bells, sit-up mats, TRX and SPRI bands. This combination of training can help you torch calories, build muscle, and provide an option for high intensity training. During the afternoon session (1500-1930) the Aquatics Center is open for recreational swim.
This summer, thanks to a new pricing initiative and a waiver from CNIC, both the Aquatics Center and the Housing Pool will be open! The Aquatics Center will be open for lap swim, Command PT, PRT, Navy 2nd swim testing, and swim team practice, while the Housing Pool will be open for recreational and family swim. As a part of the above-mentioned pricing initiative, the fees for T.E.I. card holders have been dropped to zero.
