New Community Fitness Program for Young Athletes – Safe Harbor Aquatics Club
Safe Harbor Aquatics Club is a new community fitness and education program that supports young athletes in grades 5-8 at Rowland Unified Schools. It offers to at-risk youth the chance to participate in an after-school sports program with no fee to join. Instead, parents are asked to donate three hours of volunteer time, which includes attending helpful nutrition courses. Registration Day (and the first night of class) is Wednesday, February 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Nogales High School Pool. Classes are held weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Children participate in the program for two six-week sessions. Children and parents are given a pre and post –test survey regarding the child’s self-esteem, competency and compassion. They also participate in a pre-and post physical fitness tests.
Water polo has recently become even more highly recognized in the Rowland Unified community thanks to the Nogales High School Water Polo team. The Nogales Nobles were the CIF Champions for the first time in the school’s history.
Safe Harbor Aquatics Club is seeking community sponsorship and encourages everyone to come see the program in action. The Nogales High School Pool is located at 401 S. Nogales Street in La Puente. For more information and to make donations, please contact Coach Tim Tobin at (626)965-3437.
