The Miami Dade College North Campus Aquatic Center features a brand new 25-yard-by-30-meter Myrtha competition pool with nine deep-water lanes, a large two-section shallow-water instructional area and the ability to accommodate water polo with the removal of lane lines and the placement of our two Spectrum stainless steel goals. Our state-of-the-art Colorado Time System gives us the ability to host both swimming and water polo competitions.
Our facility also boasts a brand new 40-foot-by-60-foot, 12-foot-deep Myrtha dive training well complete with an underground observation room with windows looking into the pool. There are also a 6-foot and 10-foot custom-made dive platforms to simulate water entry from a dock, boat, bridge and helicopter. We also have a one-of-a-kind prop car that can be lowered into the training well for instructional simulations.
The crystal-clear 308,000 gallons of water in the competition pool and the 230,000 gallons in the dive training well are both maintained via a state-of-the-art pump room featuring the latest filtration and chemical system managed by a networked BECS controller. The pump room also contains redundant pumps for both pools for reliability as well as eight Symbiont geo-thermal heaters to maintain ideal water temperature year-round.
The spacious brushed concrete deck surrounding both pools holds two shade-canopy-covered bleachers, two deck showers and two aquatic lifts to assist swimmers with disabilities to easily enter and exit the pool. There are four remote-controlled lighting towers that provide illumination for nighttime activities and events. The deck also provides access to the separate 1,400-square-foot men’s and women’s locker rooms, each containing over 70 lockers, 17 shower stalls as well as multiple toilet stalls and sinks. The locker rooms and the rest of the facility are ADA compliant.
