Arlington ISD Athletics Center

Arlington, TX, TX


In October 2020, Arlington ISD celebrated the grand opening of its new $84 million Arts & Athletics Complex which features a multi-purpose Athletic Center, and the Center for Visual & Performing Arts. Both facilities have been developed to serve the entire district, pre-kindergarten through grade 12, and are in the Arlington Entertainment District.

The district’s new 98,000 sq. ft. Athletics Center includes a natatorium and gymnasium, providing competition and practice venues for sports lacking adequate space at high school campuses, including swimming and diving, competition and water safety training, competition wrestling, basketball, volleyball, and elementary gymnastics.

Project Amenities

The 1,000-seat facility gives AISD its first-ever district owned and operated aquatics facility, providing much needed training space for AISD swimming & diving athletes, and allowing the district to host many levels of aquatic competition. Serving the needs of student-athletes and extra-curricular programming have been a priority throughout the planning and design of this incredible facility. The Aquatics Center features a world-class 50-meter Competition Pool, utilizing proprietary Myrtha construction technology and boasting dual movable bulkheads, fully integrated electronic timing systems, and both 1M and 3M springboard diving. In addition to the primary competition venue, a 4-lane 25-yard Teaching Pool supplements the competitive aquatics programming, allowing dedicated space for learn-to-swim, fitness/wellness activities, and additional warm-up space during meets.
