This year’s Summer Swimmers Meet will be at Walters Pool on Saturday, July 20th. It’s a must attend whether you have a summer swimmer in the meet or not as it is one of the most exciting meets of the year.

Staggered warm-ups start at 7am depending on which pool you are and the meet starts at 8:30.  See the Meet Package below for all the details!

Synchro Draws are now online

We’ve updated the Synchro Page with the Draws for the Pre-Junior Finals, Junior Prelims and Senior Prelims.  Why do we call them “Draws” you ask?  Because, the NAA Constitution instructs us to literally draw competitor names out of a hat (ok, not a hat, we usually use Zip-lock bags, but you get the idea).  We draw until all eligible competitors have a ranking on when they’ll swim.  The process is a little different for Finals, but we still draw once the preliminaries are over.

You can see the draws from this week on the 2019 Synchro Page.

Swim Team Relay Coin Toss Results

Every year, our Constitution requires that we perform a coin-toss to determine whether relays at the Time Trials and Championship Big Meet events for 11 and older athletes will be freestyle or medley.  By order of the Constitution, the 8 and Under and 9-10 relays are always freestyle.

So, we literally toss a coin in the air for the results.  For 2019, here are the results of our coin toss:

11-12 Girls: Freestyle
11-12 Boys: Freestyle
13-14 Girls: Medley
13-14 Boys: Freestyle
Open Girls: Freestyle
Open Boys: Freestyle
