- WELCOME TO OUR NEW AQUATICS CENTRE
On our first day of school our senior swimmers and team captains were invited to be the first swimmers in the water. These swimmers were given the opportunity to swim Tuesday 14th & Wednesday 15th August before our official season begins.
It was incredible to see our swimmers back in the pool again and what an exciting year it is for SCIS Swimming!
Our objective within the renovation was to use space intelligently, create a functional and safe place for the swimmers and bring more light into our Aquatics Centre! Our pool renovation included:
- Complete renovation of space in changing rooms, adding adult toilets/locker room and a lobby at the back as a communal space for swimmers.
- Both old offices moved to use space available more intelligently.
- Official FINA regulations blocks & diving deck
- Scoreboard moved to a visible space for student athletes to observe anywhere in the water (old location of scoreboard was not in a visible spot for swimmers at shallow end).
- New pace clock.
- New windows, walls, lights and many other small details.
Currently we are waiting on the arrival of:
- New office furniture.
- New lockers.
- New benches in locker room.
- Cubby holes and shoe racks in lobby.
- New Record board.
- Swim team stickers for various parts of the windows around the pool area.
