Spire Institute / Academy

Geneva, USA

One of the largest, under-one-roof training centres in the world is found at an amazing high school in Ohio, USA. The 70,000 m2 indoor arena is home to tournaments, training and events in basketball, track & field and swimming. Additionally, a host of other sports run camps and events out of the pro-level facility. The Spire Academy is even home to advanced training in mechatronics, drone racing and esports.

A key aspect of the experience Spire offers students is the importance placed on R&D in biomechanics, sports medicine, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and sports psychology. Spire partners with the NCAA, USA Swimming, FINA and… Myrtha Pools!

Myrtha supplied and built Spire’s two competition pools. The first is a showcase, 50m, 10-lane Olympic pool with 2 moveable bulkheads and Myrtha track-start blocks, featuring a deep end with springboard diving facilities. The second pool, is a 6-lane training facility, built to high Myrtha standards, and includes an accessibility ramp.

 

Kindred spirits, Spire looks at sport the same way Myrtha does – as offering the foundation for a healthy lifestyle, and an outlet that supports both physical and mental wellbeing. With that shared mission, Myrtha has been a partner of the Centre for years.
