Please read the rest of this message for the complete agenda.
What 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.
We’ve done a re-indexing of the Photo Gallery which ensures that all pictures posted in the gallery are being displayed. Given the tens of thousands of pictures on the site you can imagine it takes a few hours. But, the happy result is that you can now see all the Big Meet pictures as well as a number of other pictures in 2016 galleries that had yet to be indexed.
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.
The Waterpolo Finals Schedule has just been posted on the 2016 Waterpolo page.
The Waterpolo Playoff Schedule #2 is now online on the 2016 Waterpolo page.
First, one of the NAA’s oldest records, the 11-12 girls Breastroke is a record that has stood since 1986 when Cathy Brisson of Westminster set a blistering 37.80. That’s not the record anymore. Olivia Lam of TMR lowered the bar by a full second to 36.75 this year. Congratulations Olivia!
Next, It took 16 years but TMR finally put the Elm Park 9-10 boys freestyle relay record to bed, besting the old time of 2:23.23 set in the year 2000 and setting a new record of 2:17.15. Congratulations TMR!
You can see all the NAA records on the NAA Records page.
Rain would not prevent the NAA community from coming together for the biggest event of the year. Thank you to Glenmore Pool for running an excellent event and to all officials, volunteers, parents and even swimmers for braving the rain throughout the day.
Our congratulations to TMR for winning the Big Meet and the 8 and under trophy and to Ecclestone for winning A Division and the Most Improved trophy. Fairview won the B Division and Surrey won the Division.
For those who are keeping an eye on the weather report (And we can promise, no one is doing this more than Dave Emory the Vp of Swimming) the Big Meet will be held on Saturday rain or shine! Only a severe weather condition that ongoingly delays the meet such that it cannot continue would result in the VP and NAA President considering a delay of the balance of the meet to the rain date.
So, please be at the meet when you are expected for warm up regardless of what you think the weather might do.
We will be there!
