    Round-the-Clock Programming for Competition Pools

    Aquatics facility operators are always looking for ways to fill the water during more hours of the day. But for large rectilinear pools, introducing recreational programming isn't always the best way to diversify use. Clovis West High School in Fresno, Calif., which has hosted the California Interscholastic Federation State Swimming & Diving Championships for five consecutive years, has a laser focus on competition aquatics — and still manages to keep the pool in use more than 12 hours a day, six days a week.

    NYC's 'Cool Pools' Project Tackles 11 Pools in Two Years

    Renovating just one pool can be a huge undertaking — from narrowing down the available options to getting investors and the community on board to navigating closures while work is done. So it isn't difficult to imagine that committing to a renovation plan aimed at revamping every municipal pool over the course of several years is an impressive undertaking — especially in a city the size of New York, which boasts a staggering roster of 34 outdoor pools, 19 outdoor mini-pools and 12 indoor pools.

    Aquatics Programming for Fun and Profit

    For those who have staked their careers in the aquatics industry, it comes as no surprise that the majority of an aquatics facility's revenue is generated through two means: learn-to-swim programs and competitive swim teams. These two staples of the aquatics facility landscape are dependable, continuous, low-maintenance — and predictable. Unfortunately, this means that the bulk of a facility's cost-recovery rests on the shoulders of a relatively small population. How can facility managers cater to the needs of their most loyal patrons while driving growth in the simultaneous goals of fun and profit?
