Thanks all for an amazing 2016 season!

poolclosedYes. It’s finally over.

The 2016 NAA season is in the history books. But don’t despair.  We’re already planning for the 2017 season!  Synchro coaches are thinking of music they should put aside for their next team’s routines.  Committees are deep in hiring mode for their next lifeguards.  Swim coaches are thinking of who they will have with them in the next Big Meet.  Here at the website in the coming months we’ll be archiving the 2016 results into NAA Historic Results and setting up new pages for all the exceptional athletes who will compete in the 2017 season!

So, enjoy the time off.  It may feel a little colder but summer is coming!

Final NAA Meeting of the 2016 Season is on Monday August 29

naalogo_iconIt’s finally come to that time.  Our third and final NAA meeting of the 2016 season is as scheduled this coming Monday, August 29th at 7pm at the Dorval Community Center.

This meeting will be longer than usual given the season review and voting on 2017 events.
Also, there will be a vote for a new NAA president at this meeting.  Please advise the current president, Steve Batah if you or someone you know is interested.  Steve will not be seeking an extension to his mandate.
2 representatives from each pool should be in attendance to maximize (2) votes.  Ideally, one of the two representatives being a board member and the other a staff member.
You will find additional attachments at the end of the agenda including the proposed 2017 Calendar, the list of which pools hosted events in the last two years (important information for bidding for events) and the minutes from the last meeting.

Please read the rest of this message for the complete agenda.

All 2016 NAA Synchronized Swimming Results now online

synchro_iconWhat a season it was!  The synchronized swimmers will think of their teammates and their parents will be unable to forget snippets of overplayed music until next spring. The results of the NAA Synchro competitions are now all online on the 2016 Synchro page.  Our congratulations to Westminster for winning both the Pre-Junior competition and the overall trophy, to Valleycrest who won the Junior trophy and Thorndale who won senior.

A Generous Gift of Big Meet Pictures

Many people have asked “Where are the Big Meet Pictures?”  The short answer to that is.  There were none taken because the Webmaster was out of town and missed Big Meet for the first time in 15 years.  However, through the generosity of Jean Bertrand from Elm Park, we have over 200 pictures which have been uploaded to the NAA Site.  This represents the largest single contribution of photographs to the site ever and we are deeply appreciative of Jean’s work.  Hopefully this will be only the first of many submissions from this talented photographer.  Jean’s pictures are now available in the Photo Gallery in 2016 / Album #6 – Big Meet.

Thanks Jean!
