PHOENIX — Phoenix Swim Club, training site to Olympic medalists and home to Brophy Prep’s swim team, will be making way for a housing development.
Demolition of the two pools at 29th Street and Campbell Avenue is set for spring at the conclusion of the school’s swim season, according to Swimming World magazine.
The Jesuit prep school bought the site in 2002.
Edward Reese, president of Brophy College Prep, announced the move in an email:
Dear Brophy Faculty, Staff and Regents,
During this past week Brophy received an offer from an entity to purchase the Brophy Swim Club property at 28th Street and Campbell. Our Trustees have felt confident that it is a good offer and currently the property is in escrow. The buyer has hopes to develop homes that will enhance that neighborhood. As you know there are many hurdles to take before this offer becomes final.
We are beginning our first planning meeting very soon and our hope is that construction on the Brophy swimming pool on this campus will begin sometime this summer. We will continue to use the Campbell facility until the new pool is built so there will be no interruption to our state championship swim team. This is an exciting new adventure for all of us so stay tuned as I will share information with you as more substantive progress has been made.
Edward A. Reese, S.J.
Olympians Gary Hall Jr., Klete Keller and Anthony Ervin trained at the club and several acclaimed coaches have passed through its doors.
