Construction of the new aquatics center at Cal is well underway, and the Cal men’s swimming & diving page has posted progress pictures.
The Cal Aquatics Legends, an alumni donor group, is funding the $15-million project that will have an outdoor 50-meter by 25-yard pool, plus a new platform diving facility. Until now, Cal’s divers have had to train on the diving tower at Stanford University.
The pool will also include seating for 500 spectators.
d is expected to be completed late this summer in time for the majority of the 2016-2017 NCAA swimming season. Besides the new platform, the pool will alleviate the strain on the existing Spieker Aquatics Complex pool, which is a 50-meter, all-deep pool. That pool is now 35-years old, and supports the Cal men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams, plus Cal’s nationally-ranked men’s and women’s water polo teams.
Photos of the current progress were posted today on the Cal Men’s Swimming & Diving Facebook page. See those photos below.
