Niles North High School Aquatic Center

Project Type:
Competition, Education and Training
Skokie, Illinois

The Niles North High School Aquatics Center opened in 2013 and is home to the high schools boys and girls swimming & diving teams, the Swift Aquatics competitive swim program and the Skokie Park District Swim America learn-to-swim program.

WTI worked closely with the architects and key stakeholders to develop an aquatic facility that would best fit the needs of the Skokie swimming community. The new competition pool and renovated existing pool will provide more aquatic opportunities for the community and school. In addition to making it ADA-accessible, renovations to the existing pool included new filtration and UV treatment systems to reduce water and chemical use.

The aquatic center includes a new, 25-yard stretch competition pool with a moveable bulkhead, a diving well, two 1-meter concrete diving platforms and one 4-meter diving platform. The area can also accommodate up to 500 spectators in the mezzanine and 200 athletes on deck.
