Racine Unified School District Aquatic Center

Mount Pleasant, WI


Case High School's campus was home to Racine Unified School District's original aquatic center which was no longer able to serve the school district due to its age and had also been closed for a number of years due to safety concerns.

Rather than attempt to fix the original pool, the district decided to increase its Community Service Fund taxing levy from $5 million to $10 million in 2019 to pay for a brand new Aquatic Center to meet the district’s current and future demands for instructional, competitive, therapeutic and recreational swimming opportunities for the students and the community. The new 53,00 sq. ft. RUSD Aquatic Center, located adjacent to Case High School, was built to replace the aging competition pool.

The stretch-25 competition pool was designed to host competitive swimming and diving simultaneously. It includes an automated timing system and video display, 950+ spectator seats overlooking both sides of the pool from an elevated balcony, plus space for an additional at deck seating for athletes. The minimum 7’-0” depth competition pool can also be configured for 16 cross-course lanes, as well as for competition water polo. A four-lane, shallow water training pool with ramp entry adjacent to the competition pool was designed as a warm-up/cool-down for competitors and for physical education and learn-to-swim classes.

The Racine Unified School District Aquatic Center offers some unique features: Both pools have an exposed aggregate cementitious finish with ceramic tile lane markings, tile bands, and trim. Regenerative media filters were selected to complement UV Systems and advanced water chemistry controllers, with calcium hypochlorite and sodium bisulfate for disinfectant and pH control.
