RRISD Aquatic Practice Facility is a UIL competition level aquatic facility. The new facility is made up of two distinct water bodies and the support facilities and amenities required. The primary waterbody includes a 50m competition pool that provides enough space for three teams to practice crossways simultaneously. It includes two bulkheads and provides 1m springboard diving.

The second water body is a 25YD warm water pool to accommodate warm-up, learn-to-swim, and other community activities and programs. The pool enclosures are passively ventilated structures designed around a custom modular PEMB structure, while the support and amenity spaces are conditioned structures supporting locker rooms, coaches’ offices, concessions, public restrooms, and other support services. The site supports 200 parking spaces and acts as the front greenspace for the adjacent PAC center. The buildings and pools are designed to be extremely energy efficient and incorporate a CHP system that is a prototype for the district’s efforts in optimizing energy performance.
