Windsor - August 8, 2013 - The City of Windsor announced today the official name of Windsor’s aquatic centre. The ‘Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre Presented by Windsor Family Credit Union’ will officially open its doors next week for the International Children’s Games.

“The Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre will provide the City of Windsor an identifiable name to market and attract world-class events,” said Mayor Eddie Francis. “This is the opportunity as a community to showcase what this City has to offer, on an international scale. To have Windsor Family Credit Union as a presenting sponsor and be involved in this project makes us very proud.”

The Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre features: 10 lane 71m pool with two movable bulkheads, diving boards and dive tower that can accommodate dive competitions, and a therapy pool which can be used as an activity pool. The Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame (WECSHOF) will also have its permanent home in the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre. The Sports Hall of Fame will honour local athletes with digital displays, sports artifacts and renderings of its 186 honoured members.

Thousands of swimmers, coaches and families will visit Windsor for a number of prestigious events at the new Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre. More than seven events have already been announced which will see more than 5,000 competitive swimmers attending these meets. Also confirmed is the much anticipated and very high profile FINA 2016 25 metre competition. This facility not only will give Windsor an opportunity to host Championships, it also provides a world class training facility to the hundreds of local competitive swimmers and divers. The Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre is a facility that they deserve and a place to call their own.

“We fully support the City of Windsor’s vision for the revitalization of the downtown area and believe that the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre is a key component of the plan. The facility will increase traffic to the core of our city as well as provide an opportunity to further develop the City’s sports tourism industry” said Martin J. Komsa, WFCU President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being committed to this community means supporting initiatives that reflect Windsor Family Credit Union’s mission to help ‘make our community the best place to live and work’. With the potential to become an internationally recognized aquatic training and competition centre, the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre will be another jewel for the City. WFCU is certainly honoured to have the opportunity be the presenting sponsor allowing the City to maintain the actual naming of the building.”
