Dear Kickstarters, please help us spread the word regarding this campaign.

I am the father of a 6 year old first year member of the Ygnacio Wood Swim Team.

Ygnacio Wood recently celebrated its 50th anniversary; this team has been a spark of personal and athletic evolution for generations of young swimmers.  

We spent the past few years raising money to repair our pool. It got so bad this past season that the bottom of our pool started cutting the feet of our swimmers.  

We are working hard right now to ensure that we hit our goal of raising $26,000 by March 9th 2015. 

We believe that if our message reaches a large enough audience that, combined with our own ongoing efforts to meet our goal, enough people pledging will help us reach our goal.  

Please help us continue developing confident young adults through the pursuit of excellence in swimming, in life and having fun with friends.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

We rely solely on the dues paid by our membership and no matter how responsible we are the costs of running a pool are high.

We have saved and raised funds and are looking to the Kickstarter community for a final push to put us over the top in time for our next season.

We've done our due diligence, we've met with a number of contractors and even paid for an independent inspection.

As of now it will cost us around $110, 000 to completely resurface our pool and repair leaks in our system.

There is an amazing group of kids that swim on our team. They are the center of our club and they are why we are working so hard to make this happen!
