The Murray Case Sells Swim Complex offers many programs and classes for the OU, Norman, and surrounding communities. Some of the programs offered are summer group swim lessons for children and adults in our outdoor facility, Aqua Zumba® classes, shallow and deep water aerobics classes, birthday parties, private swim lessons, American Red Cross certification classes for lifeguards and water safety instructors (swim lesson instructors), swim stroke clinics and private adult group classes.
The indoor complex opened in the fall of 1973 and the outdoor complex opened in the summer of 1975. Once opened the Murray Case Sells Swim Complex was home to both a men’s and women’s NCAA Division I collegiate swim teams. The men’s program ran from 1973 to 1986 and the women’s program ran from 1975 to 1986. After the college teams were dropped the Murray Case Sells Swim Complex became the exclusive and current home of Norman High School, Norman North High School, and Sooner Swim Club swim teams.
