POOL FACILITIES
What makes the GCISD Swim Center one of the fastest and best pools in the State of Texas?
  • Completed in 1994
  • Pool is 25 yards by 25 meters, eleven lanes in the yards direction and 10 lanes in the meters direction.
  • Depth ranges from 13' to 4' at the turn end and 6' to 4' at the starting end. The 10 competitive lanes range in depth from 6' to 5' at the start end and 7' to 13' at the turn end. The 11th lane is 4' deep the entire 25 yards.
  • Two 1-meter and one 3-meter diving boards
  • Ten-lane fully automatic Colorado timing system with a LED Scoreboard
  • Overflow gutter system
  • Money from the 1997 bond funded the addition of 400 more seats, a quality weight room, a classroom, offices, a concession area, bigger locker rooms, and bigger lobby bathrooms.
  • Money from the 2016 bond funded a LED scoreboard, and in the near future resurface the pool bottom, replace starting blocks, and add large cooling fans.

  • Team members have achieved over 145 All-America performances and 326 All-State performances.
  • Have won ten individual UIL State Championships, and set six UIL state records.

SwimGwen Blythe, 2008 CHHS graduate, participated in the 2008 Olympic Trials in the 200 meter breaststroke. Although she was not one of the two final finishers who advance to the Olympics, she is one of only two GCISD swimmers in history to advance to this level of the Olympic Trials competition. Gwen, who attended the University of Notre Dame on a swim scholarship, won the 2007 UIL championship in the 100 yard breaststroke.
