Heaters and Blocks for Wahoo's of Jax

For more the 20 years, the Wahoo’s swim team have coached and taught hundreds of swimmers in the Jacksonville area during the summer.

Since 2014, we have been working towards a year-round program. We have successfully coached swimmers that are currently continuing their swimming career in college. Some swimmers recently qualified to Jr. Nationals and Olympic Trials.

However, we have always struggled with finding a consistent home. We drove to multiple locations and training late at night. Sometimes we could not train because we had no access to a pool.

This past summer, Wahoo’s of Jacksonville found home for our program. We are happy to have created a partnership with Harvest Community School, located off of Fort Caroline Road!

This is a great opportunity to train more swimmers while helping them learn our core values: Power, Love, and Self-discipline.

·         Power - Through training, our athletes will become stronger; determination is a powerful life lesson.

·         Love - Through friendships, fellowship, and competition, swimmers will create lifelong memories.

·         Self-Discipline - Through respect, discipline, and self-control, athletes will grow into solid adults ready for life’s challenges.

However, we have one obstacle. The pool does not have heaters or diving blocks. Our team needs your support to fundraise $75,000.

The temperature of the pool is dropping and we need these heaters as soon as possible. The work could take 4-6 weeks, but it all depends on how fast we can fundraise the money.

Your support will help impact many young athletes looking for a place to grow, improve, and learn. We want to call ALL Wahoo’s swimmers from the last 20 year and ALL the swimmers that Coach Carlos has coached to help us move forward. WE NEED YOU!

Please watch our video and share with family and friends!
