Counsilman-Hunsaker applied aquatic expertise for George Mason University and designed a plan to seamlessly blend two bodies of water in one functional space. The end result is a diverse design that encompasses a variety of interests of the entire student body.

The competition pool is utilized for training and special events by the Athletic Department and also serves the needs of the public for general fitness activities as well. The indoor competition pool consists of:

  • 50-meter pool
  • 1 and 3-meter diving
  • Moveable bulkhead, allowing the pool to be sectioned off for lap swimming, training for local aquatic teams, or fitness classes
  • The leisure pool is available to the university students and general public. Designed with a variety of aquatic elements, the pool features:
  • ADA-accessible zero-depth entry
  • Open flume waterslide
  • Open swim area with gradual water depths
  • Current channel
  • Vortex
  • Tumble buckets
