Happy 239th

The summer has arrived and so has the warm, humid weather. Humid? I am not sure how this happened. We are in the desert, it’s suppose to be a dry heat right?

The Best “Job” In The World

The best JOB in the world is one that is never treated like a job but treated as a passion. My past is well documented. I grew up swimming as an age grouper in Mission Viejo. I left Southern California for the desert when offered a partial scholarship to attend Arizona State University. I swam all four years at ASU …

Winter Becomes Spring…

We are excited that spring is now in full swing. The pools are filling up again with anxious swimmers, both new and seasoned, and many families have decided to join us a little earlier than in seasons past.  This year is a year like no other for Evolution Swim Academy since it is the year that we unveil our first …
