YMCA Aquatic Center

YMCAThe YMCA Aquatic Center is located on South International Drive roughly five miles from DPHS. It has undergone numerous name changes and transfers of ownership over the years but one thing that has remained consistent is the success of the Dr. Philllips Swimming and Diving program.

Since 1987, head coach Bruce Follensbee's teams have won six state championships, including Women's Swimming's stretch of five titles in a row from 1994 through 1998. Men's Swimming captured the state title in 1995 and finished state runners-up in 1996 and 1997. Combined, the programs have also won ten Metro Conference and 13 District Championships.

The Aquatic Center also hosts our Water Polo teams under the direction of men's coach and DP graduate Leo Ramirez and women's coach Apryle Nickson, who has seen four daughters through the Swimming and Diving program.
