CONVERTED TIMES WILL NOT BE USED AT THE HOBSON WEST POOL


 

What gives? Is the Hobson West pool slow?

No! Our pool is 7 feet longer than other Naperville pools.



 


Hobson West Pool         25 Meters


or    27.35 yards


 


 

 

 

 


Other Naperville Pools         25 Yards


 


 


 

 


Times from our 25 meter pool will seem slower than times from 25 yard pools.

To convert, multiply:   meter time   ×   .9009  =  yard time.

 

This is a new conversion factor for 2008. (Prior to 2008 the conversion factor was .9144.) This is the swim community standard that takes physical exertion into account. Converted times will be about 1½% faster than with the old conversion factor.

 

All times that are submitted to the Park District are converted to 25 yard times.
