State-of-the-art swim center coming to Kyle

Staff Report

KYLE — Kyle Economic Development announced Dec. 3 that a state-of-the-art swim center is coming to town.

Nitro Swimming hosts swim lessons and competitive swim teams in an indoor, climate-controlled center. The center will be located in a 40,000 square-foot building on the east side of FM 1626, north of Kohlers Crossing. They are expected to break ground in January 2022, and a grand opening is slated for late 2022.

The center will feature two pools — an instructional pool and Olympic-sized competition pool — as well as indoor deck space and a climate-controlled viewing area. It will also have the capability to host various swim meets with approximately 400-500 athletes and room for spectators.

The instructional pool will be 25 yards long and have five lanes with overflow gutters and two filtration systems, including a UV filter.

The competition pool will have 24 lanes of “short course” (25 yards) and 10 lanes of “long course” (50 meters), with custom starting/racing platforms, an electronic timing system and scoreboard with full read-out of the racing lanes.

Nitro Swimming has become the leading swim lessons provider in the Austin area, as well as a top competitive swim team, since its formation in 2006. They are also a partner of the Special Olympics of Central Texas, and the facilities are often utilized for water rescue training for law enforcement and emergency first responders and by local scout troops for certification needs.

“We are excited to have a business like Nitro Swimming join our growing and thriving business community,” Kyle Economic Development Director Diana Blank-Torres said. “They are bringing a unique industry of destination recreation, as well as a top-tier swim safety center to our region that will further strengthen our local economic diversity.”
