Matthew T. Doyle Natatorium

This facility was built to accommodate novice to experienced swimmers. The Natatorium is a state-of-the-art facility that sets itself apart from similar facilities in the Gulf Coast Area.

The Natatorium not only serves as the Texas City High School swimming and diving venue but was designed as a site that will also benefit the citizen's use for recreation, fitness and instruction. The architects crafted a multipurpose facility that encompasses TAAF, United States Swimming and high school swimming meets.

The Natatorium features an eight-lane, stretch 25 meter pool with a depth ranging from 3 feet 6 inches to 14 feet. A moveable bulkhead will enable the pool to be configured into a 25 meter or 25 yard competition ready pool with warm/cool down lanes. The diving well is equipped with 1 meter and 3 meter diving boards.

Future programs include year-round youth and adult swim lessons, shallow and deep water aerobics, lifeguard and water safety instructor courses and Masters Swim Team. Whether you are interested in purely recreational swim or looking for a competitive edge, our facility is here to meet your needs.
