The Hall of Fame recognizes the achievements of people in six aquatic sports - competitive swimming, diving, open water (marathon) swimming, diving, synchronized swimming, and masters (competitive swimming for those ages 25 and older).  The ground of the Hall of Fame include a swimming history museum, a 50-meter pool, a 25-hard diving well and a warm-up pool.
