What people are saying...

As a PE teacher on South Whidbey, I hope to integrate and promote swimming within the strong current educational program we already have.

- Eric Jokinen, South Whidbey Middle School PE specialist

As a community surrounded by water, we need more opportunities for all of our residents to increase their safety skills from how to swim to how to help someone who is in danger of drowning.

- Krista Loercher, owner Whidbey Island Kayaking

An aquatics center would benefit the economy directly and indirectly by providing jobs and adding a valuable asset to the community.

- Sharon Sappington, Executive Director Economic Development Council for Island County

We all benefit from access to outstanding parks and outdoor spaces, and an aquatics center would add a much needed avenue of recreation, exercise, and wellness for people of all ages. 

- Karen S. Leitz, owner and physical therapist Whidbey Performance Physical Therapy
