The 2019-2020 season is not just a year of new coaches for the Alabama Crimson Tide. The team has also unveiled its new-look aquatic center that underwent a $21 million “renewal and renovation” over the last year.
For the project, the indoor 25 yard pool was converted to an outdoor 25 yard by 25 meter pool that’s deep enough for springboard diving, new diving platforms in the indoor pool, an athletic training room as well as expanded deck space, sectional glass roll-up doors along the west side of the building, new pool deck surface, ceiling, lighting and spectator seating.
The renovation also included a new team suite that houses locker rooms for both teams as well as a nutrition station, team meeting room, a team lounge and coaches’ offices and conference room.
The video below offers a look at the new outdoor pool and the team’s new locker room facility.
The Crimson Tide kicked off their season last week with a dual meet win over Division II Delta State. Their next meet is an October 4th dual against Georgia in Birmingham; Alabama isn’t actually scheduled to host a meet for the entire 2019-2020 season.
