The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) just announced that Sailfish Splash Waterpark Aquatic Athletics Center will continue to host the state high school swimming and diving championships for two more years.
“The two year extension highlights the fact that Martin County has a showcase aquatic venue for athletics that doubles as a family friendly destination for recreation and entertainment,” explained Rick Hatcher, Executive Director, Treasure Coast Sports Commission. He continued, “Clearly, the facility is fulfilling its promise.”
In addition to the FHSAA Swimming and Diving Championships, Sailfish Splash Aquatics Center also hosts numerous regional and district swimming and diving meets, synchronized swimming championships, and the rapidly growing College Swim Coaches Association of America Winter Training Forum. Most recently, the facility has been named as the host site for two Junior Olympic regional meets.
Over the last three years, just the FHSAA swimming and diving championships have generated $3.5 million in positive economic impact for Martin County. All total, since opening, the competitive side of the venue has generated in excess of $10 million in positive economic impact.
From an athletic perspective, swimmers have broken two national and seven state records in the “fast pool.”
To ensure the aquatic center’s continued financial and competitive success, the Martin County Parks & Recreation Department continues to work closely with the Treasure Coast Sports Commission, Jensen Beach High School, South Fork High School, The Pine School and sponsors.
“The FHSAA’s decision resulted from broad collaboration across many organizations on the Treasure Coast,” noted Kevin Abbate, Director of the Martin County Parks & Recreation Department. “We have a winning combination: a great staff delivering great service, exceptional partners and sponsors, and a championship caliber facility set in the convenient, affordable, relaxed, engaging, family-friendly environment of Martin County and the Treasure Coast.”
