San Antonio Natatorium History

The San Antonio Natatorium was built in June of 1981 on the old Sidney Lanier High School Track. City Council member Henry Cisneros was instrumental in working with the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) in developing the concept. At the time, the $3.2 million facility was the flagship for the City of San Antonio and South Texas. The venue has provided numerous high school, international and local age-group competitions. The Olympic team from Australia trained at the natatorium in December 2000. Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman, Bruce Hayes, Grant Hackett and Karen Perkins have graced the water of the San Antonio Natatorium.

Built with federal grant funds, it was geared toward allowing inner city children an opportunity to develop and compete in competitive swimming and diving. the facility has produced an Olympic trial qualifier, numerous UIL state qualifiers (swimming and diving), regional champions, and has served thousands of SAISD swimmers and divers.
