Becoming safe in the water and learning how to swim are essential skills for youngsters.
But when you can achieve that and also incorporate fun, fitness and friends, you’ve found a
sport that is a wholesome, positive activity for everyone. El Paso Aqua Posse is that venue
for more than 250 El Paso area children.
Aqua Posse is a year-round competitive swim team for young and old. Our littlest
swimmers start at about four years of age and many continue through college. We utilize
city and county swim facilities throughout the region - from El Paso’s west side to the far
lower valley. Founded in 1957, Aqua Posse is one of the most successful swim programs
in Texas, boasting swimmers that range from pre-competition to Olympic Trial Qualifiers.
Coaches and volunteers provide an environment which allows each swimmer to maximize
his or her potential. Socio-economic boundaries don’t exist with Aqua Posse, as we strive
to make the sport of swimming available to all youngsters.
Our team is a non-profit organization which relies on fundraising and volunteers for its
existence. To generate money to pay for coach salaries, pool rental fees and scholarships
for youth, a parent-run Board of Managers hosts two major swim meets every year. We ask
(COMPANY NAME) to help meet our fundraising goals this year by serving as a sponsor.

feel the exhilaration of achieving goals, developing life-long fitness principles, and making
