On the drawing board since 1974 the long-awaited Aquatics Complex
and Sports Medicine Center is now a reality!
After more than 40 years of dreaming, talking and planning, the construction has been completed on Northgate High School's Aquatics Complex and Sports Medicine Center! Northgate Community Pride Foundation, Northgate High School leadership, the Mount Diablo Unified School District and countless volunteers and contributors like you have made one of the most complex projects ever taken on at Northgate a reality. Projects like these are never easy, yet facility construction is complete, and we are in final stage of fundraising for critical equipment needs.
As is always the case with these significant projects, the usual strong support from the Northgate Community Pride Foundation and many donors has helped make this all possible. The funds raised, coupled with the funding from Measure C, have been instrumental in getting this project in the ground. But there is still a need for funding to equip the facilities with the desired amenities that current plans call for in a first rate complex.
The pool is 40 meters x 25
yards and accommodates 16 lanes. The facility is able to host two concurrent water polo contests and allows Northgate to host larger, championship level tournaments and swim meets as well. The new sport's
medicine facility has also long been a dream. For the first time in history, athletes will no longer need to travel to practice and finally
know the true feeling and pride of a "home pool advantage."
Our "Let's Pool Together" campaign has been a success, but we need to continue our fundraising efforts. To date, we've raised over $800,000 but we still need to raise approximately $100,000 – a very obtainable goal! We're entering the final phase of this project and now is the time to help us reach the final milestone. With your help, the donations received will provide the ability to equip the facility with critically needed equipment - water polo goals, scoring equipment, starting blocks, diving boards, PA system, bleachers and other equipment.
If you have a son or daughter participating in swimming, water polo or the sports medicine program, today or in the future, the school needs your help in pushing this tremendous project to the finish line. In the end, it's the kids who are the true winners. So we ask you to please join us once again in becoming part of this meaningful and lasting legacy for Northgate High School, and encourage you to make a donation today.
And while the Sports Medicine program and swimming and water polo programs touch many, the school's physical education will utilize the pool for its curriculum, enhancing the experience for every student who attends Northgate High School.
