Freestyle / Aerial / Splash Pool

Utah Olympic ParkThe freestyle aerials training pool opened in July 1993, and is the summer training site for many world-class aerialists, including Olympians Shannon Bahrke, Emily Cook, Jeret Peterson and Ryan St. Onge. The pool contains 750,000 gallons of water and is “bubbled” to soften the impact of landing. The highest of the four primary kickers can launch these airborne athletes nearly 70 feet in the air, and allows the aerialists to perform several twists and flips.

The Utah Olympic Park offers a variety of one-day, three-day, six-day and seasonal public freestyle camps. During the summer months, the Flying Ace All Stars are featured in a 30-minute freestyle aerial show on Saturdays at 1:00.

Freestyle aerials is a year-round sport at the Park. A winter freestyle hill and terrain park area are used for various competitions and training on snow. When the snow comes, kickers are built on the hillside between the nordic jumps and splash pool. The Park staff offers coaching and programming for all levels of athlete development.
