April 16, 2014. We are SO excited for our first year anniversary & customer celebration being held on May 4 & 5, 2014! We greatly hope you will attend. We wanted to make you aware of some amazing individuals that are supporting our event! USA Swimming is the governing body for competitive swimming in the US, and both the Club Facilities Development Director (MICK NELSON) & The Aquatic Programs Specialist (SUE NELSON) for USA Swimming will be giving an in-house interactive water safety seminar for kids during our celebration!
Mick and Sue Nelson come from a club coaching background along with extensive experience in business and aquatic management. They formed their own swim club and built their first indoor facility in Danville Illinois in 1973. In 1974 they formed Nelson’s Swim Supply retail and wholesale pool/spa and aquatic equipment business. In 1982 they formed NSS Inc which offered aquatic facility design, building, and business consultation to the aquatic industry. In 1994 they formed WaterWay Therapy Inc. which was one of the first and only privately owned and operated Medicare approved outpatient Aquatic Physical Therapy centers in the country. In 2002 they formed Poolside Health & Wellness Center which became not only the home for the Turtles USA Swim Club, WaterWay Therapy, and Swim America learn-to-swim program but a full service land and water community health and wellness center. Their specialty is business development, programming, water treatment and aquatic facility design. In 2004 they moved to Colorado Springs to help form the new Facilities Department of USA Swimming.
In the last 2 years the Facilities Development Department has been instrumental in helping pools with solutions to over 120 air and water quality challenges, 65 renovations, 20 saving pool scenarios, 55 new pool design projects in the planning stages and 16 new pool openings. This makes our 10 year total of 104 new aquatic projects completed and open.
Thanks Mick & Sue for being part of our special celebration!!
