Who are we?

  • We support the current Mountain View Pool and programs as well as efforts to replace it with a modern aquatic facility.

  • We believe that JAC's goal of supporting aquatics to improve water safety, health, wellness, recreation and competition for all ages is critical to local quality of life.

  • JAC was founded in 2012.  It took over the former Make Waves! 501(c)(3).
