UNI Swimming and Diving Starting Blocks

The UNI Swimming and Diving team uses the Wellness and Recreation Center for its practices and competitions. The WRC opened in 1998 as a top-of-the-line facility with the most up-to-date equipment for swimming and diving. As with most sports, swimming has evolved and the starting blocks have now changed to the point that they alter the way starts for individual events and relays are performed.

Currently, the UNI swimming and diving team is unable to practice starts at the WRC and has to travel to other pools outside of the Cedar Valley area to train. Updating the blocks will help UNI student-athletes prepare better every day with the equipment that is common at most competitions and most importantly at the MVC Championships.

In addition to making UNI student-athletes better, updating the WRC starting blocks will allow UNI to come into code with requirements to host high school championships and USA swimming meets. This will make UNI a more desirable location to host top-level events for the college, high school and local club teams.

This project has been recognized as a priority by UNI alumni, as a former UNI Swimming and Diving team member has pledged $26,000 to this project. This leaves $10,000 needed to purchase and install new starting blocks by the 2018-19 season. Please donate today to support UNI Swimming and Diving and an upgrade to the WRC the will benefit the Cedar Valley for the next 20 years.  With your help, we can reach our goal and have the new starting blocks installed for the upcoming 2018-19 season!
