Please help us keep our pool open.

Welcome to the Friends of the Williams Aquatic Center Website

Posted with permission from the Williams-Grand Canyon News.

This video was produced to promote the pool and was released in January 2010.  By the end of the month, the pool was closed.  Since then, the city has been able to open the pool while the students at our schools are on summer break.

Help us in returning the Williams Aquatic Center to being open year round. This pool has saved lives through physical therapy, given youth a place to utilize for keeping their mind and body fit, and helped the elderly with aerobics classes.  This is a community pool, a family pool that the citizens of Williams worked hard to get!  Too many small towns across the US are losing the things that make them unique. Let’s stand up for our community and save the pool!

Any help with funding or avenues to obtain funding in keeping small-town America alive through this beautiful aquatic center that all ages and families can use, is welcomed with open hearts!.


Pool Opening May 25th with a Free Swim Day

The Williams Aquatic Center will start its season with a Free Swim Day sponsored by the Friends of the Williams Aquatic Center.  Refreshments will be provided by the Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce.

This Opening Free Swim Day will start at 10:00 AM.  Join us at the pool after the parade.


Online Golf Tournament Registration Now Active

Our online registration page for the golf tournament is now active. Please click on the 2013 Golf Tournament & Deep Pit BBQ on the menu above to get to our registration page.
With the help of the city, we have been able to move our Golf Tournament back to Saturday. We hope that you can plan on joining us this year out on the Elephant Rocks Golf Course in the pine trees of the Coconino National Forest here in Williams, Arizona. We will be having our delicious Deep-Pit BBQ for golfers and non-golfers after the Tournament. The Tournament will be a 2-person scramble just like last year. We have upped the ante with a $50,000 Hole-in-one contest.

If your coming from out of town, we would like for you bring your families. There is a lot of things for them to do in our Route 66 town, Gateway to the Grand Canyon (TM) while you get to golf in the cool mountain air. We will be arranging packages and discounts for the families of the golfers at the area hotel, attractions and restaurants.

Stay tuned for more details.
