In March of 2016, Gaston Aquatics was founded as a 501 (c) 3 with the goal of fulfilling the long-time need for an aquatic center in Gaston County. The current plans for the 34,000 sq. ft. project include a cool water 50-meter pool, a warm water programming pool with zero degree entry for classes, therapy, and aquatic safety instruction, elevated spectator seating for 1,200+, clinical rooms, a weight room, and a hospitality suite.
Gaston Aquatics, Inc. improves the health of our community by providing lifesaving swim instruction for all children and adults, offering designated pool space for medically-focused, aquatic-based rehabilitation, and sponsoring competitive swim teams that represent Gaston County both regionally and nationally.
Our key areas focus on offering swim instruction for adults and children, supporting therapy to enhance health and well-being, and providing a training center and competition venue for area swim teams.
