The competition pool was designed as a 25-yard pool, 10 to 16 lanes, divided by a moveable bulkhead to also include a diving area. The bulkhead can be adjusted to create a 25-meter or 25-yard pool. The diving well was designed with a one-meter and three-meter springboard and can also be converted into lap lanes. The water has a depth that slopes from 7ft. to 13.5 ft. and a temperature of 80 degrees, each appropriate for water polo, synchronized swimming, diving, training, and competing.

The recreation pool is maintained at 86 degrees, suitable for therapy use. The natatorium also contains a 15 person hot water spa.
