Morcom Aquatics Center

In 2008 Florida State opened its new $10.5 million Morcom Aquatic Center.  The state-of-the-art facility is located off-campus next to the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course.  The main pool features up to 30 practice lanes and maintains a temperature of 80 degrees.  FSU swims in the same pool that hosted the 2005 FINA World Championships in Montreal, Canada.  During those World Championships nine world records were broken.  Included in the record breaking performances were American's Aaron Peirsol (200m back), Ian Crocker (100m fly) and Jessica Hardy (100m breast).

The diving well features two one-meter and two three-meter springboards as well as one, three, five, seven-and-a-half and 10 meter platforms.  The platforms are 10 feet wide making them the widest in the nation.  The diving pool is kept temperature controlled at 82 degrees and also features a compression bubble used to soften a divers impact during entry while practicing platform dives.  Divers will also be able to practice their dives using the dryland equipment which includes two springboards attached to an intricate rope and pully system and a trampoline.

Spacious locker rooms and coaches offices are located in the adjoined 10,000 square-foot building, which house the athletes equipment and coaching staff.

Important pricing note:

After six years of operation we are increasing our entry fees by $1.00 and by popular request we are adding 15 and 30 visit passes for your convenience.

We have set the prices for the 15 and 30 visit passes to include 1 free swim when purchasing the 15 visit pass and 2 free swims when purchasing a 30 visit pass.  Also, we will keep a log of all passes sold in case you misplace your pass.

We will no longer have the semester and annual passes for sale.  However, if you currently have one of these passes we will certainly honor thru its expiration date.
