CONVERTED TIMES WILL NOT BE USED AT THE HOBSON WEST POOL

What gives? Is the Hobson West pool slow?

No! Our pool is 7 feet longer than other Naperville pools.

 

Hobson West Pool         25 Meters (or    27.35 yards)

Other Naperville Pools         25 Yards

 

To convert, multiply:   meter time   ×   .9009  =  yard time.
Times from our 25 meter pool will seem slower than times from 25 yard pools.

This conversion factor was implemented in 2008. (Prior to 2008 the conversion factor was .9144.) This is the swim community standard that takes physical exertion into account.

All times that are submitted to the Park District are converted to 25 yard times.
