If knocking down 3,000 meters an hour sounds like fun, then this is the pool where you'll want to do your flip turns. The outdoor facility features a very fast eight-lane, 50-meter Olympic pool that is 25 yards wide, allowing for both short-course and long-course training. The six-foot-deep pool is equipped with wave-absorbing gutters that keep the water smooth as glass. And did we mention that that water is always crystal clear?

Named after the late Mona Plummer, who coached the ASU women's swim team to greatness in the 1960s, '70s and '80s, the facility also features a world-class diving pool with one-meter and three-meter springboards and five-meter, seven-and-a-half-meter and 10-meter diving platforms.

Mona Plummer is home to Sun Devil Aquatics, an age-group swimming team. It also hosts an age-group water polo club, a competitive diving program, and Sun Devil Masters, a competitive swimming program for adults. Swimmers, take your mark . . .
