Fun, entertainment and magic.
Champions Run in Omaha, Neb. provides a sizable amount of each of these elements to its members through the club’s aquatics and pools program.
A signature feature is a state-of-the art splash park that includes three water slides, a dump bucket and ground features. There is a 20-foot aquatic climbing wall, playground, inflatable obstacle courses, kids slide, slack lines, and diving board.
“To recruit younger members, we felt we needed attractions that would target younger families,” Champions Run Creative Director Ben Lorenzen says. “Our splash park provides a safe and enjoyable environment for our community to cool off, have fun, and make lasting memories.”
The club’s pool programming also separates it from its cohorts. With 425 children on its swim team and 125 youngsters on its dive team, Champions Run has the largest swim team and dive team in the U.S., Lorenzen says.
“Our team members, ranging from beginners to competitive swimmers and divers, receive top-notch coaching and training from our experienced and dedicated coaches,” Lorenzen says.
Members can take classes such as scuba diving, paddle board yoga, poolside spin, and HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training).
“These innovative and engaging fitness options provide our members with exciting opportunities to stay active, healthy, and motivated in a dynamic aquatic environment,” Lorenzen says.
Employees work hard at entertaining their members with activities, particularly during the summer months at the pool.
“Whether it’s a foam party, promotional games, or activities (frozen friendship, t-shirt cannon), members come to our pool for the experience, not necessarily the amenities,” Lorenzen says.
Rubber duck races in the pool and the “Rose All Day” event — where members can enjoy rose wine while sitting by the pool — are two activities that have become very popular at the club. There are also member appreciation days, a poolside barbecue and a themed party.
“Our goal… is to create magical moments and memories for our members and their guests,” Lorenzen says.
