13 Nov Dupage Swimming Center is bringing swimming instruction and fitness to thousands
The National Step into Swim campaign is teaching the American population how to swim. A Dupage County, IL businessman and former olympic swimmer is doing the same thing for thousands in his Dupage Swimming Center. Platinum Pool was recently given a private tour of this wonderful facility, and would like to share our experience with you.
Created in 2003, the Dupage Swimming Center has taught over 350,000 swimming lessons.
Founder Ross Seymour was an All-American Collegiate swimmer at Oklahoma State University and represented Australia in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal.
The five-lane, 25-yard pool and an accompanying smaller teaching pool are used for 1,000 lessons in the winter months and 1,400 lessons during the summer.
Lap Pool: 5 lanes X 25 yards – 82°F
Teaching Pool: 5 yards X 12.5 yards 92°F 3ft–3ft 5in deep
DSC’s trained and experienced instructors strive to create a safe and positive atmosphere where students can achieve their individualized goals for swimming. Their policy is to promote a life long love of swimming in a structured and innovative environment.
The impressive pump room features state-of-the art equipment to keep both pools sparkling clean and crystal clear. A dehumidification system provides the perfect ambient air temperature and moisture level, as well as a “chloramine” smell-free environment.
The center is open 6 days a week from 7 A.M. to 9 P.M. and accommodates swim lessons, open swim, and classroom activities for swimmers. This is a truly state-of-the-art facility, and we at Platinum Pool are privileged to have been given this tour. The Dupage Swimming Center actively and succesfully promotes the leading aspirational activity that prevents drowning, increases physical activity, and opens a range of fun aquatic activities: Swimming!
