Pledge Party at the Facility, 6221 Ramada Drive, Clemmons, Wednesday, 4/13 between 6:00 - 8:00pm
Come visit and see the facility. Hope to see you there!
The TSF is currently in the process of raising funds to develop a new Aquatic Facility in the Clemmons area of North Carolina, just outside of Winston Salem, to create an opportunity to offer programming that is currently limited in the area due to the high demand for pool space and the lack of it's availability.
The cost of the total project is between 2.5-3.0 million dollars and is on a tight timeline as the goal is to be in the facility by the end of September. Fundraising and Pledge drives are already underway with several groups that are in support of the facility and we have already meet with contractors, builders and structural engineers so look for drawings soon!
The facility will have three pools with distinct purposes. A Training pool with 10-11 lanes and a temperature around 80 degrees that will be used for outreach programs, High School swimming, competitive swimming along with several other groups. There will also be a 3-4 lane Fitness pool that will have a temperature between 83-85 degrees that will be used for lap swimming, fitness classes, aerobics , lessons and special needs groups. Finally, there will also be a smaller Lesson pool with warmer water (91-94 degrees) for lessons, special needs classes, water therapy classes and other warm water activities.
There will be several open houses at the facility once the initial drawings are in place so that everyone can see the layout and plans for the upcoming facility. This will give everyone a chance to see what all of the excitement is about and how the facility can benefit the community and fit your families wellness and aquatic needs.
