Become a Sponsor

Dear Potential Sponsor,

The CT Athletic Program (“Marlins” Swim Team) is a non-profit with a mission to promote youth athletics right here in the heart of Tucson. Our pool is tucked away in the neighborhood near Ft. Lowell and Tucson Boulevard.
Established in 1961, we are now in our 62nd year as a community pool and swim team. Our summer swim team is for youth ages 4 to 18. From April through July, we coach 150 swimmers and host a six-week sim meet series with teams from the Southern Arizona Aquatics Association (SAAA). We have 100 member families supporting our pool and tennis courts.
Every year we look for community businesses and individuals who would like to help fulfil our youth sports and athletics mission. Our membership dues do not fully support our costs, so your support matters!



With the ongoing help of sponsors like you, we have provided swim scholarships for more than 20 years, restored the “Marlins” pool (2017), replaced our bathhouse hot water system (2021), and renovated our changing room floors and walls (2022). Our current fundraising objectives include:

Scholarship Fund – Your support allows us to provide athletic swim team scholarships for Tucson youth who would not otherwise be able to participate in SAAA swimming.
Long-term capital improvements – urgent replacement of the pool filtration and plumbing system, Guard and bathhouse roof repairs, replacement of team storage shed.


In appreciation to our sponsors, we announce business names during swim meet intermissions and host “sponsor-
of-the-week” posts on our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram). Sponsor business links are listed on

our website for the entire year of the sponsorship season.

Would you like to help us? We have a few different levels of support for you to consider:

  • BIG FISH – $1,000. Includes: 3- by 5-foot sponsorship banner displayed at all practices and through the summer at the pool; largest logo on team t-shirt; complimentary team T-shirt.
