New Partnership Provides Southern California High School with a Grant, Gym Memberships, and Recognition for Exemplary Coaching

San Diego Wave FC and 24 Hour Fitness, the leader in holistic fitness, announced today a new multi-year partnership aimed at promoting healthy living in underserved high schools in Southern California.

As the first act of the partnership, a San Diego area school program will receive a donation from 24 Hour Fitness and San Diego Wave FC as well as complimentary one-year 24 Hour Fitness gym membership to help the school remain competitive in its athletics programs. As a nod to the critical role coaching plays in supporting young athletes, the partnership will also recognize and award a coach who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and unwavering dedication to cultivating athletic excellence and lifelong wellness in their team. 

In addition to supporting the school program, as the presenting sponsor of San Diego Wave FC’s Game Zone at Fanfest, 24 Hour Fitness will have a strong brand presence on game days at Snapdragon Stadium and will also be the presenting partner of all Match Notes, a preview of every match which will be hosted on the club’s website throughout the season. 

“Encouraging healthy lifestyles and providing an inclusive environment are the core of Wave values, for our team, our supporters, our fans and our city. Bringing on 24 Hour Fitness as part of the Wave FC family is going to make our sports community and our hometown of San Diego a better place.” 

Jill Ellis, San Diego Wave FC President  

“At 24 Hour Fitness, we know firsthand the transformative power of holistic fitness. San Diego Wave FC shows that dedication, perseverance, and excellence aren’t just game time qualities and we want to support them as they inspire and empower the next generation of athletes.”

Karl Sanft, CEO of 24 Hour Fitness
