Rancho Mission Viejo Update
When the new year rolls around, many of us will be filled with optimism and will self-impose new goals that may or may not be fulfilled. For some of us it will be to make ourselves better, whether that be at work, school, or in general. Our family at Evolution Swim Academy will have a new year’s resolution like one we have never had in the past. It will be to see our new swim center in Rancho Mission Viejo come to life.
We have received our permits and have cleared all of the hurdles that come prior to building the first block of our new swim center. I’ve learned so much about this process, things that I did not learn in 2014 when we put the finishing touches on our Mission Viejo swim center. Most of what I learned this year centered around patience and understanding. What should’ve taken 3 months to complete, the permit process, took 9 months. Financing this swim center was also a bit tricky because no one is “virus” proof and lending institutions want to be compassionate, but they also want to be assured that you will be there when this is all over. We also have a landlord who has also had to learn patience over these past few months. Above all, our members have been rock stars throughout this process. This swim center was promised for Fall of 2020 and will now be delivered April of 2021. For those members that have moved forward and joined our Founder’s Club, even in the face of adversity, thank you for your trust and support. I am grateful for you.
So, with all of the financials, permitting, and landlord dealings behind us, the fun is about to begin. Our general contractor will mobilize during the holidays and will be ready to break ground come January 4th. Our Founder’s Club will continue to grow, and we will launch a campaign to reward our most committed families. The campaign will go like this. If you refer three families, your Founder’s Club membership is FREE. Regardless if you have already paid for your membership*. Expect more on this after the 1st of the year but start thinking about who may benefit from our lessons and save $199.00 in the process.
Happy Holidays everybody and I look forward to being in touch.
*We will credit your payment for future lessons.
