Planet Swim to open Nocatee training facility

An outdoor training/competition pool, indoor teaching pool and two indoor flow pools will be among the offerings at a new Planet Swim training facility set to open in Nocatee later this year.

To be located adjacent to Davis Park near Ponte Vedra High School, the new facility will offer swimming instruction as well as training facilities for competitive swimmers. According to an announcement on the Nocatee residents blog, the location for the new facility was selected for its proximity to Davis Park’s sports and nearby schools for hosting competitions.

Founded in 2009, the Ponte Vedra-based Planet Swim attributes its success to its trained staff and curriculum that employs new technologies such as stroke analysis software and neuroscience applications to enhance motor learning.

“We believe that the combination of our expertise with Nocatee will result in ultimate success,” Planet Swim Founder and CEO Gus Calado said. “We are thrilled to expand our services to the Nocatee community and beyond excited for the upcoming preparations leading to the Fall 2017 grand opening!”
