Huntersville’s NOMAD Aquatics is merging with a Concord-based program, the organizations announced Monday.
Sailfish Aquatics “will be expanding into the NOMAD Aquatic and Fitness Center while maintaining its presence at the West Cabarrus YMCA and Stanly County Family YMCA,” the organizations said in a joint announcement.
NOMAD’s facility on Eastfield Road includes a 25-meter by 25-yard, 10-lane competitive pool, a 20-yard instructional pool and a 30,000-square-foot fitness center. Its youth swimming programs range from beginners to competitive teams.
Sailfish Aquatics also has competitive teams covering a range of ages.
Sailfish CEO Hubert Williams will serve in the same role for the merged organization while NOMAD owner Mark Minier will be director of swimming operations, according to a press release.
“We can’t wait to compete as one team,” Minier said. “Bringing the rich history of NOMAD together with Sailfish Aquatics enhances our ability to build a program focused on developing student athletes and serving the community. We look forward to the opportunities that blending our families will produce.”
