We’re meeting a need in our community.


• Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional deaths for children ages 1-14 years old. (National Drowning Prevention Alliance NDPA)
• 70% of African American, 60% of Hispanic and 40% of Caucasian children don’t know how to swim. (USA Swimming)
• African American children between the ages of 5-14 are three times more likely to drown than Caucasian children. (Center of Disease Control, CDC)

We are making a difference.


• Over 25,650 visits at the Fred Hampton Aquatic Center since 2013
• Everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer due to the fact that there are zero aquatics incidents
• 100% of the 471 children and adults who received complimentary swim lessons reduced their risk of drowning by learning safety in and around water.
• The philanthropic community contributed to the success of the pool in 2017, including:

A5 Group, Inc., Forest Park National Bank, Forest Printing, Klein, Thorpe, and Jenkins, LTD., Rotary Club of Maywood, Village of Maywood, The USA Swimming Foundation
• YMCA of the USA

We have a big dream for 2018. 

  • Our goal this summer is 11,000 guest visits.
  • We want to provide at least 260 children with swim lessons.
  • Statistics show that minority children have a high rate of drowning. We want to help lower that rate by teaching children proper water safety skills.
  • Studies have shown that physical activity leads to higher achievement in the classroom. We want to support the youth of Maywood and help them reach their full academic potential.
  • Among children between ages 6 to 11, Latino (26.1 percent) and Black (23.8 percent) obesity rates are higher than the White (13.1 percent) rate. These same increased rates are seen among Latino and non-Latino black teenagers ages 12 to 19 (CDC)
  • Studies have also shown that children who spend more time outdoors are less likely to be obese. We want to support a healthier community by giving children the opportunity to spend summer outdoors! Your investment creates positive change.
  • Contribute as a Monetary Sponsor and directly offset operational costs.
  • Contribute as a Scholarship Provider and not only will you directly offset operational costs, but you’ll also receive Scholarship Annual Passes to give to youth or families who cannot afford passes.
