Ken Lindgren Aquatics Center - Long Beach, Ca
The Ken Lindgren Aquatic Center at Long Beach State has played a significant role in developing some of the best water polo talent in the world.
Growing up on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and under the California sun, athletes tend to gravitate to sports like volleyball, swimming and water polo. Some of the best athletes in the world in these sports come from the beach cities. This is why both USA Volleyball and USA Water Polo have their National Governing Body (NGB) headquarters in this region. This is also why the Ken Lindgren Aquatics Center on the Long Beach State campus is such an important facility- especially as it pertains to water polo. The Ken Lindgren Aquatic Center features an Olympic, 50 meter pool, a 25 meter pool, deck lighting for night competitions, a classroom on deck and an electronic scoreboard/ videoboard with the water polo timing system. The pool complex neighbors the kinesiology building providing full locker room access, meeting room and training room space as well as a courtyard venue that is great spot for social activations, picnics, vendor villages and food court set up. When the Long Beach State campus is used as a broad sport complex, multisport/ Olympic style events work great. This is why the campus has been home to the Special Olympics Southern California Summer Games since 1998. Another example of a multi- sport event that takes advantage of the Ken Lindgren Aquatics Center is the annual CSULB Reverse Triathlon that coordinates a bike and run course through internal campus roads and concludes with the swim portion in the pool- a unique twist and a smart use of the campus resources.
