About the Facility

The construction of the Tommy Stalnaker Aquatic Center was a joint effort between the Houston County School District, Houston County Government, and the cities of Centerville, Perry, and Warner Robins. For the daily operation, the Houston County School District and Houston County Government are in collaboration to provide this new facility as a space for the community to come together for both recreation and competitive swimming events. 

The 39,000-square-foot facility features a 50-meter competition pool with state-of-the-art pool and timing technology to host competitive swimming events as well as lap swimming. The 25-yard, warm water program pool features expansive entry steps and a zero-entry ramp. It will be used for beginner swim classes, aqua-aerobics, as well as additional water activities. The building also includes a classroom space and locker rooms. 

The center is named after Tommy Stalnaker, former Chairman of the Houston County Commissioners. He served Houston County for 50 years: 38 years as an employee of the county and 12 years a commissioner.  He began his career on August 15, 1972, serving as an employee for 38 years.  Then, the citizens of Houston County elected him as Chairman of the Houston County Board of Commissioners with his term beginning on January 1, 2011.  He served 12 years as Chairman, retiring on December 31, 2022.  Chairman Stalnaker had a clear vision to improve the quality of life for all residents, and the citizens of Houston County will be forever grateful for the impact he made on our community.
