The Hulbert Aquatic Center is the permanent home to the pool that UP Aquatics bought for nearly $1 million and moved to North Dakota after it was used at the 2016 Olympic Trials in Omaha, Neb. The facility is possible because of the work of various experts who came together to work with the passionate community and public interest groups.

In an effort to solicit high-profile competition events and to maintain the Hulbert’s reputation, UP Aquatics recently secured an overhead and underwater camera system that will allow the center to livestream events. The facility takes as a point of pride that the pool is the last competition pool that Michael Phelps swam in on U.S. soil.
