Dear Silverton Members,

    As many of you are aware, the Silverton Swim Club has been up for sale and I am excited to report that the purchase of the property is complete.  H20 Ventures has purchased the property and we are very optimistic for the future of Silverton.  While H2O Ventures is the landlord, the Marlins Of Raleigh Swim Team will operate the property.

    I want to take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Paul Silver and I am the head coach of the Marlins Of Raleigh Swim Team.  I grew up in Chapel Hill and moved to Cary to coach swimming full time in 1984 so I am a long time resident.  My wife, Dr. Caroline Silver,  grew up in Raleigh and participated in TSA at Northbrook and also coached.  Caroline is an Optometrist with MyEyeDr, formerly Eye Care Associates.    We have 3 sons, 1 who swims at the U. of Florida as well as a Lacrosse player and another swimmer.       

       H2O Ventures intends to maintain a summer membership for the Silverton Community just like it has in the past, only better. Many of the traditions and activities you have enjoyed will continue including summer swim team, holiday celebrations and more. The diving boards will remain along with the slide and basketball goals and playground equipment so that you may look forward to a family friendly environment.   You will see many upgrades and renovations to the property which has already begun by Aquatic Management Group.  These include upgrades to the siding, roof, bath house, as well as parking lot and much more. 

    In addition we will be constructing a heated fabric structure over the pool that will allow for year round use as well as the ability to remove the sides for comfortable summer use while still leaving plenty of deck space for tanning and outdoor fun.  There will be winter memberships available at a discount for current Silverton members as well as instructional programs, fitness programs, masters swimming and year round competitive swimming with the Marlins Of Raleigh, a nationally recognized swim team with professional coaches.

    More information will be available shortly regarding memberships and we look forward to building on the past of Silverton while expanding for the future.
