 High School Meets and Practices 
The competitive pool at Mitch Park is home to all 3 swim teams for Edmond Public Schools (EPS).  When not in use by EPS for practice or meets, the pool is rented to club teams or other organized swim groups for practice and meets.  In addition to Edmond Schools and club usage, the competitive pool at MITCH PARK has hosted the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Paralympic swimming events and high school regional and state championships.  At various times throughout the year, other branches host high school swim practice when regular venues are closed.
