Clinton High School Athletics Addition

Clinton, Iowa

This athletic addition to the Clinton High School replaces an existing, outdated pool with a new state of the art, eight lane 25 yard competition swimming pool that also includes a three lane warm-up/cool-down and instructional pool.  Working closely with the planning committee, frk determined the district needs could be best met with two separate pools.  This optimizes the desire for a high performance, competition venue as well as serving the instructional needs of the district.  The shallower instructional pool is situated directly adjacent to the competition pool, separated by a fixed bulkhead which allows the instructor/coach to be in close proximity to the students and athletes.  In addition, this allowed the seating to be elevated to the second level to maintain optimal sight lines to the competition pool.  Windows are positioned to allow diffuse natural light into the space while avoiding glare for both swimmers and spectators.  The facility also provides an additional gymnasium, wrestling, aerobics and wellness spaces for the district.
