In May 2021, the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District hosted grand opening ceremonies for two identically-designed swimming facilities at PSJA Early College High School in San Juan and PSJA Memorial Early College High School High School in Alamo.
The project, which totaled $11.8 million combined, equipped each of the two campuses mentioned with its own swimming facility, including an instructional pool and a competition pool. The competition pool, also known as the practice pool, is 25-yards by 25-meters in size. The instructional pool features three 25-meter lap lanes and is 3 ft. in depth which is ADA accessible with a sloped entryway.
The 7,000 sq. ft. facility also includes a spectator seating area for 175 people, a large multi-purpose classroom, dressing room, showers with lockers, restroom facilities, and an office area. The outdoor pools have a canopy to provide shade for swimmers.
The aquatics facilities will help the school district build their Swim and Dive Teams and continue their competitive edge. It is also a great asset to the entire community during the off-season.
