Build Chino Valley Aquatics Fitness Center

$550 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 3 months
We are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to our kids and our community.  Our community really needs an aquatic center.  We have identified the land and state funds that can build the facility.  All that stands in the way of our being able to apply for the GRANT is a FEASIBILITY STUDY to prove the facility will be a tremendous benefit to the community and will be FINANCIALLY SUSTAINABLE.   Thank you for any help you can give us.

EVERY DAY ~10 children and adults die from drowning accidents!
Most are totally preventable. But places to teach them to swim and be safe if the water are scarce and disappearing EVERY DAY.  There are NO year round community pools in the Chino Valley (CA) area to address these needs.

Depression and suicide rates among our TEENS and HEROES (fire fighters, police, military, paramedics), is on the rise.  Aquatic exercise is known to have a meditative effect and help relieve depression.  There are no year round community pools in the Chino Valley (CA) that can help them.

Our ELDERLY, DISABLED, and 'AT RISK' populations have no place where they have access to low-impact, ADA, and therapeutic exercise.  Aquatic FITNESS programs address these needs.  There are no community pools in the Chino Valley (CA) to implement these programs.

Swimming, both RECREATIONAL and COMPETITIVE, is a year round, non impact, healthy sport that teaches our kids commitment, dedication, and self-responsibility.  (And gets them off the couch for a few hours every day).   Pools for competitive water sports are at the schools and competition for 'water time' is fierce.  Waiting lists to join teams are common.  There are NO pools available for year round recreational swimming in the Chino Valley (CA).

Want to join us in making a difference and saving lives?  We're raising money for a FEASIBILITY STUDY in order to secure a state grant to build the CHINO VALLEY AQUATICS FITNESS & WELLNESS CENTER.   This is a COMMUNITY project championed by Chino Hills Aquatics.

We are committed to teaching thousands of children and adults to swim through our LEARN TO SWIM programs.   We are partnered with USA Swimming's Make A Splash Foundation and the Red Cross to reduce childhood drowning and the effects from near drowning.  We just need a pool!

AQUATIC FITNESS programs are especially beneficial to our AGING adult population, our Senior Citizens, the DISABLED and anyone with special mental or physical needs.  Aquatics programs provide a low impact environment for people to move and be free from pain and injury, all the while having healthy fun.  We just need a pool!

We are committed to preparing our kids for the future.  COMPETITIVE SWIMMING is one of the most effective youth activities that teaches and reinforces  commitment, dedication, self-responsibility and leadership.  According to USA Swimming, competitive swimmers consistently have the highest average GPA of any sport.   We are desperate for more pools to meet both the RECREATIONAL and COMPETITIVE needs of our community.

We are committed to supporting our HEROES... our first responders (fire fighters, paramedics, police) and the military etc.,  by providing AQUATIC EXERCISE and AQUATIC THERAPY programs designed for “anyone” in very high stress environments.   Swimming 20-30 minutes a day, 3 days a week,  is one of the most effective therapies known to aid in reducing the effects of PTSD and depression.  We really want to help these men and women who put their lives on the line for us!  We really want a pool!

Every day single use pools are closing all around the country and it is getting harder and harder to find 'water'.   OUR COMMUNITY DESPERATELY NEEDS AN AQUATIC CENTER.

We have identified the land and will be applying for a state grant to build the Aquatic Center.   The next step is to obtain a FEASIBILITY STUDY to prove our design and programming will be FINANCIALLY SUSTAINABLE and will provide a public benefit to the surrounding communities. 

YOUR DONATION will allow us to hire Conunsilman-Hunsaker, the top Aquatic Center Design and Consulting firm  in the world, to conduct the study and prepare a report to be submitted with our grant application. 

We already have an Enterprise Plan from USA Swimming that shows we will be FINANCIALLY SUSTAINABLE.   We are asking for $35,000 for the feasibility study and help with the grant preparation.  100% of your donation will go towards our goal and 100% is tax deductable.

Our BUILD CHINO VALLEY AQUATICS committee is made up of volunteers who have a sincere dedication to their communities and a fierce determination to get this built.  We are supported by Assemblymember, Freddie Rodriquez;  County Supervisor, Curt Hagman;  State Senator, Connie Leyva;  the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, Chino Hills Department of Parks & Recreation member, Bill Taylor, and local hospitals.

We are Chino Hills Aquatics, a non profit 501(c)3 non profit organization, willing to champion  the building of this all inclusive aquatics and wellness center.    Thanks in advance for your contribution and partnership, it means so much to us and to the many lives you will be saving!
