Support the Club: Donations, fundraising, sponsorship

Fish Aquatics believes in the development of young people through a pursuit of excellence in character, civics, academics and athletics. It is our goal to use swimming as a means to help local youth develop into incredible young people who will positively impact this team and our community through their leadership for years to come. As a socially responsible club invested in our members, schools and community, our top priority is to high quality coaching to the Lafayette area at an affordable price for families.

We believe that financial means should not be a barrier to accessing high quality youth services, which is why Fish Aquatics has multiple ways you can help support the club. Donations and participation in fundraising opportunities provides Fish Aquatics the financial means to keep club fees low and provide scholarship opportunities to athletes who need them. Learn more about how you can support the club, and choose a method of support that is right for you and your family.
