Dale Aquatic Center

Location:  2703 Ridgewood Avenue, Sanford, FL  32773
                  407-302-1034 (adjacent to Seminole High School)

The Dale Aquatic Center is the home venue for Seminole Aquatics team training.  Developed as a joint project between the City of Sanford, Seminole County, and the Seminole County School Board, the pool was opened to the public in March of 2000.

In 2001, the facility was re-named the Larry A. Dale Aquatic Center in honor of the former Mayor whose leadership was key in bringing the Aquatic Center to Sanford.

This 50 meter by 25 yard full Olympic-size pool was built using the same Myrtha design technology utilized in the competition pools at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.  The wave-less gutter design, combined with an average depth of 8 feet makes it one of the fastest training and competition pools anywhere.  It features eight 50-meter lanes and twenty 25-yard lanes, 16 starting blocks (including eight new full-size, trackstart-style blocks), and a ten line Colorado Timing Systems scoreboard.
