Aquatics Complex Building W – Pool


Aquatics in Long Beach has reached a new level with the LBCC Aquatics Complex. This bond project features the region’s premier 65-meter competition pool. It offers exciting opportunities as a world-class training facility for LBCC Athletics, Olympics, competitive swim, dive, water polo teams, and individual athletes. The complex also helps address the growing need for sports medicine, water fitness classes, swimming education, safety, and recreation programs for the community.

The Long Beach City College Board of Trustees has unanimously approved the $2M naming campaign for the brand new state-of-the-art Aquatics Center in honor of Monte Nitzkowski! The naming campaign for the Monte Nitzkowski Endowment will establish an endowment invested to earn long-term revenue. This annual revenue will have a life-long impact on our LBCC student-athletes. For more information about how to support the Monte Nitzkowski Endowment, please contact Gina Mascaro
