A PLACE TO CALL HOME
We are thrilled to finally be able to announce that we will be in a permanent location for the 2015/16 Season!
After 7 seasons at local high schools and community gyms, where we had to set up and tear down our equipment every single night, we have finally secured a spot to call home.
In this spot we will be able to provide athletes with better tools to assist in their training process, such as spring floor, something that, when setting up and tearing down everynight, we simply were not able to have.
We faced many struggles, such as double bookings, snow days that weren't actually snow days forcing us to cancel practice because we had to follow what the schools did, and had limited access. This new facility will be an improvement in all of these areas!
Our new location will be at 440 Main Street in Kentville.
I truly believe everything happens for a reason, people come into our lives and very often there is reason to it. The person who will be leasing this building from is someone I worked for 4 years ago, I was a Nanny for his daughter, he owns a constuction company and often we would discuss options and plans to have our own gym someday. In 2014 we bought a piece of land, as many of you know, with intentions to build our own gym there. It is at that time that we started getting in touch again, at about the same time that we were ready to move forward with the financing for the building he reached out and said he had this oppotunity he wanted me to consider. At that point we looked at everything in great detail, and realized that going forward with the building of a new facility might not be the very best thing for the business at this point, and took this as a sign.
It has been a nervewracking few months waiting for everything to fall into place, but it finally has, and we can now say that we will be leasing the gym at 440 Main Street!
For those wondering about the land we purchased in 2014, what I can tell you is that it is ours, still is and will be. We have every itention to build the absolute best cheer facility in the future; and that is key, if and when we are going to build, we want it to be the absolute best, and view this new space at 440 Main Street as a stepping stone to getting us there.
There are still details to be worked out, such as exact move in date (which is thought to be sometime in August), we will be sure to keep everyone updated as plans unfold.
I have attached a couple of pictures to give you all a sneak peak, they aren't the best, but imagine our banners hanging on the walls, trophies on display, blinged out in our signature bright blue, black and white... and it will be HOME!
We chose the theme of this year as Magic... and Magical things are definitely happening!
I write this with placements in 12 hours, and could not be more excited for what this season has in store.
