Introducing

CANNONBALL

?

What is Operation Cannonball

  • iRun wants to tell our elected officials that it's time to build a multi-pool swimming complex in Idaho Falls.

  • The facility could include play areas for toddlers and kids, party rooms, picnic space, and better competitive facilities.

  • It will take donations, sponsorships, and grants to achieve our goal, not tax dollars.

  • If you would like to see a complex built within 3 years, keep reading to learn how to support us in our efforts.

Cassette
  • People listened to music on cassettes when The Wes Deist Aquatic Center was built in 1986.

  • The population in Idaho Falls in 1990 was 43,929, in 2023 it was 69,450. That is an increase of almost 60%.

  • The Wes Deist Aquatic Center is now grossly outdated and overcrowded for a growing community.

Did you know we're growing

Did you know

buildings have a life span

  • Statistically, the lifespan of a commercial building is 30-50 years.  The Wes Deist Aquatic Center is currently 37 years old.  

  • When a building exceeds its lifespan, it requires more maintenance, it decreases in functionality, and/or some of its components can fail.

  • The Aquatic Center moves closer to the end of its lifespan, every year our community puts off building a new pool.

Swimming Race
  • There are no JV swim teams in D91.  Swimming is the ONLY area sport that allows everyone on a team to play varsity.

  • In the past 5 years, the Skyline High School Swim Team has added more swimmers every year and three SHS swimmers went on to swim in college. 

  • Every high school from Rexburg to Pocatello (seven 4A and four 5A) either holds practices, competitions, or both at the Aquatic Center.
