Portable Swimming Pool Starting Block Products
The PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block is the first of its kind and a user-friendly way for competitive swimmers to practice. Simply set the blocks in place, fill them with water for added weight, and you’re ready. When not in use, just drain the water and put them away. No bolts, tools, holes, fittings, or fuss.

We recommend placing the PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block on the deck near the deepest water. This minimizes the risk of injury. Starting blocks should only be used by competitive swimmers under a coach’s guidance in a controlled environment with adequate water depth. The American Red Cross recommends this depth be a minimum of 9 ft.
A Custom Pool Starting Block for Constant Practice
Our products are made from durable polymers and stainless steel that’s designed to be stored, moved, and transported anywhere. We adjust the height to custom-fit your pool configuration so you can get the most out of your starts.
Many pools used for practice do not have starting blocks. Others take them down to return them for a competitive meet. Not having them is why coaches do not practice competitive swimming starts more often. The patented PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block solves that problem.
The Pool Starting Block for Beginners
The PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block is ideal for training newcomers because it can be reversed to provide a low, 8° sloped surface. Filling is quick and easy with a 3-inch cap on top to fill with a bucket or hose. Emptying is even faster through the 1.5-inch drain cap on the side.
A full PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block weighs approximately 400 pounds and is secure on nearly any textured deck surface. On tile or smooth concrete, placing the block on any non-slip pad ensures the same safe installation. When practice ends, just drain the water. An empty block weighs approximately 100 pounds and can be carried by two people or one person with a hand-truck.
CAUTION: We recommend positioning the PowerStarts® Portable Starting Block on the pool deck near the deepest water to minimize the risk of the swimmer impacting the bottom of the pool. Starting blocks should only be used by competitive swimmers under the direct guidance of a suitably trained coach in a controlled environment with adequate water depth. The American Red Cross recommends a minimum water depth of nine feet.
