SPIRE Aquatics Center

Imagine your event in a state-of-the-art sports complex that accommodates thousands of athletes at once.

What about a place where every sport is played regulation-size and every detail of the facility is Olympic-grade? Or a place that converts courts and fields by sport as needed so competitions can move indoors based on weather conditions? How about a place that elevates the fan experience with mezzanine, bleacher and stadium seating, as well as an array of concessions/café options, free wireless Internet and over 2,000 hotel rooms within a 30 minute drive?

SPIRE is your place.

It's built by athletes, for athletes. And it shows. Whatever your event, we've got the facilities to take it to the next level.

 

The choice for local clubs, regional clubs, competitive training and international meets, our Aquatics Center enables more athletes to compete in a fraction of the time. It features:

  1. 10 lane, 50-meter Olympic Size Myrtha Pool with two moveable bulkheads
  2. 1- and 3- meter diving area
  3. Olympic-grade Colorado timing systems and Omega starting blocks
  4. 36 foot by 9 foot Full Color Colorado Videoboard
  5. Full locker room facilities
  6. Extensive seating for over 1,000 with great views
  7. 6 lane, 25 yard Warm-up/Cool-down Myrtha Pool
