The King’s Academy dedicated its new Full-Page Aquatic Center on Thursday, April 2.
The facility includes a 10-lane, 25-yard by 25-meter pool, with a 3,000-square-foot pool house. The pool house consists of locker rooms, a coaches office, concession areas and storage areas.
The pool holds 325,000 gallons and is 6 feet, 8 inches in depth. For competition purposes, the pool will operate the hi-tech Colorado Timing System software with underwater touchpad sensors. The pool will be used for swim team practices and meets, physical education classes, elementary intramural programs, swim lessons, summer swim camps, lifeguard certification courses and more.
The center came to fruition through a lead gift from the Page family, who wanted to honor Guilford and Charlotte Full and W.D. and Patricia Page with the naming of the facility. “We never envisioned being in a position to be able to do something like this, but we are blessed to do so because our parents ingrained in us the importance of education and hard work. Honoring them in this way recognizes the foundation they laid for us, for which we are so thankful,” TKA parent Tuny Page said.
