When the University of North Florida Aquatic Center closed to the public on December 14, Jacksonville lost a valuable resource that has served the city in multiple ways since 1987 and several organizations that use the pool on a regular basis will be forced to find new homes.  

One of those organizations is North Florida Swimming (NFS), a year-round swim team with approximately 275 team members, primarily ranging in age from 5-18.  After many months of examining available resources, NFS has partnered with The Inman Company, a Jacksonville financial advisory firm, to raise funds to build a new Indoor Swimming Complex that will serve the community and provide swimmers of all ages and abilities a safe place to swim, with a strong emphasis on teaching and age-appropriate training.

This new privately-owned,  indoor facility will be located in the Jacksonville Southside/Intracoastal west area. Plans for the building include a 50 meter competition pool and smaller, 25 yard teaching pool. In addition to a permanent training home to North Florida Swimming, the facility will offer:

  • Swim lessons

  • Masters and Triathlon training

  • Water Safety Classes

  • Senior Citizen fitness/rehab

  • Special Olympic Training/Events

  • Lane rentals for schools and other swim clubs

Funding for this project has begun and will be procured through:

  • Tax deductible donations to NFS (a not for profit organization).

  • Naming Rights/Title Sponsorship

  • Secondary sponsorships

  • Investment opportunities

  • Memberships

  • Rental Agreements

  • Bank Loans
