Aquatics

The aquatic center is 45,000 square feet, and contains a 50-meter x 25-meter swimming pool, two meters deep at the ends and three meters deep in the center. The pool has two moveable bulkheads, ten 50-meter lanes, twenty 25-meter lanes and contains 909,000 gallons of water.

The facility is primarily used for training and testing of the USA's finest swimmers (Olympic & Paralympic), pentathletes, triathletes, and water polo players, but is also utilized by other athletes for cross-training. An overhead catwalk and underwater cameras allow for filming athletes both above and below water for testing purposes.

The facility also utilizes other training aides such as a towing system, power towers, climbing ropes, and free weights to help maximize training.  

Sports Centers I and II

The Olympic Sports Center I, the first multi-sport gymnasium built on the Colorado Springs complex, is a 59,000 square-foot facility containing six gymnasiums, which can accommodate the training requirements for 14 Olympic and Pan American sports.

This facility has over 54,000 square feet of training facilities. It can accommodate a diverse variety of sports, from common sports like volleyball and basketball, to smaller, more internationally-renowned sports like team handball and archery.  

The facility can also easily accommodate paralympic sports such as goalball, wheelchair basketball, and sitting volleyball

Sports Center II was constructed in October 1993. Both facilities will be undergoing renovations and additions in the spring of 2012.
