SwimMAC announces $6M facility construction campaign


SwimMAC Carolina has launched a $6 million facility construction campaign.

The One Lane at a Time campaign will fund the construction of a new aquatic center and expansion of or improvements to five existing facilities.

SwimMAC Carolina and development partner RL West plan to build a multimillion dollar aquatic center at LangTree, a new development just off of Interstate 77 at exit 31 in the Lake Norman area. The initial plans include two 50-meter pools; one primarily for training and competition, the other customized for swim lessons and to support other auxiliary programming. RL West agreed to donate the land and the infrastructure for the aquatics center at LangTree.

Also, SwimMAC is working closely with the Mooresville Convention and Visitors Bureau, which has authorized $650,000 to help fund the facility’s construction and operating expenses. Discussions are underway with the Town of Mooresville to bring swimming lessons to their elementary schools, offer water space to their high schools, and additional recreational programs for their community.

Plans are also in the works to renovate and expand SwimMAC’s existing training center on Providence Road, on the campus of the Charlotte Latin School.
