Some know, and some don’t. Dobyns-Bennett has pools. They are located near the gym, and many students don’t know that D-B has a pool system. Both freshmen and sophomores are required to take a unit of swimming when they take gym. This is something many kids dread because the pools aren’t a student’s favorite place to be here at school because they’re seen as unclean. Students have a hard time understanding why swimming in gym is important, and often don’t want to use the pool.  Mr. Love, the swimming coach, explained the future of the pool.

Love says there is a robot that cleans the bottom of the pool, so the pool does get cleaned regularly. Love says, “We have a robot that cleans the bottom when it works. Underwater robots have a lot of moving parts and breakdown a lot.” So, there are concerns about the pool getting clean, especially when the robot can break down from use.

What is the future for the pools at DB, some may ask? Love answers that by saying, “Kingsport has a great big Aquatic Center that is 15 minutes away. Having a pool on site helps those students who want to swim on the team but does not have transportation to the KAC.” Love also says there are plans in the works to renovate the pool, but those details are yet to come in the future!
