The W-L facility contains a 25 meter x 25 yard competition pool equipped with a moveable bulkhead dividing a semi-coupled diving area. The diving area contains two 1meter springboards. The pool's moveable bulkhead allows us to set up for Water Polo games and to separate the diving well and instructional areas from the lap lanes. Colorado Timing system and scoreboard completes the make up of this facility. The competition pool is kept between 81-83 degrees. There is also a separate instructional pool, kept at 83-85 degrees, a wet classroom, and a spectator area with capacity for 175 spectators overlooking the pools (and the vantage point from which the two photographs were taken). The locker room facilities offer individual shower stalls and there are four family changing areas, two of which are fully equipped and handicap accessible. W-L Pool Diagram
