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

We have some new record holders in the NAA following this year’s Big Meet. Records set as long ago as 33 years ago have fallen!
In the 8 and Under boys 25M freestyle, Elm Park’s Kris Grant 16.04 eclipsed the 1985 record of Westpark’s legendary Steve Jarvis of 16.30. Great work Kris! This was the oldest NAA record!
In the 9-10 Girls 50M Freestyle TMR’s Ye Hyun Jeon’s time of 31.97 beat the 2010 Fairview time of 32.19 clocked by Leah Meklensek.
In Women’s Open, Tori Meklensek was able to beat Sunnybrooke’s Katie Milbers time from 2009 by only 6 hundredths of a second! The new time to beat is 27.13
In Girls 11/12 50M Butterfly Cote St Luc’s Mandy Vistal’s time of 32.18 takes over the record of 32.22 set in 1997 by the famed Val Tcholkayan of Elm Park.
In Men’s Open 50M Butterfly Kade Wist of Fairview’s startling time of 24.80 becomes the new time to beat as the old record of 25.51 set by Karim Zayed of Thorndale in 2009 falls.
In Girls 9/10 200M Freestyle the new record of 2:23.22 was set by TMR and takes over the 1986 record of Westminster of 2:25.70.
In Girls 11/12 200M Medley Relay, TMR’s time of 2:23.75 beats the 2003 record set by Fairview of 2:23.93
In the Boys 11/12 200M Freestyle Relay, TMR’s time of 1:57.83 crushes the 2012 time of 2:06.03 set by Fairview.
You can see all the 25M records on the NAA 25M Swim records page.
What a great day Valleycrest put on for the entire NAA. Our thanks to the staff, coaches, familes, members, officials and countless volunteeers at Valleycrest for the 2018 Championship Big Meet. The detailed results are on the 2018 Big Meet page and the Team Scores are on the 2018 Swim Team page.
Congratulations to each and every athlete who competed and to all the coaches who are to be forgiven for not having any voices today after all the cheering.
- TMR is the winner of the Big Meet and the A Division.
- Fairview is the winner of both the 8 and Under and Most Improved trophies.
- Ecclestone is the winner of B Division and;
- Ballantyne is the winner of C Division.
Over the next few day s we’ll be checking the results against all time records and updating them where required.
For all the parents, athletes and coaches who will be attending our 2018 Championship Big Meet at Valleycrest on Saturday August 11th we have details for you. Valleycrest has kindly created an event page at www.vycpool.com/bigmeet2018 with details on schedules, facilities and even a site map. We encourage you to stop by this site for the latest information on warm up times, the schedule of the day and other breaking news.
Our thanks to our three host pools, Glenmore, Ecclestone and Ballantyne for hosting our A, B and C Division Time Trials. We very much appreciate the work of the pool staff, officials, volunteers coaches, parents and athletes for three great events. The Time Trials results have now been posted on the 2018 NAA Results page. You’ll find separate results for each of the three divisions and a combination file which brings all the results together for our 2018 Championship Big Meet next Saturday at Valleycrest.
With the final scores now in for the Swim Team Dual Meets, we now move into the second phase of the NAA Swim Season.
Based on the dual meet scores we will determine the swim lanes for the Time Trial Preliminary heats on Saturday. Remember that only a limited number of competitors for each event in each age group can participate and that each competitor is limited to how many events they can qualify in. Then based on the Time Trials Preliminary results, we’ll know who will qualify for the annual Big Meet a week later!
We encourage both qualifier and non-qualifier swimmers and their families to come out to the Time Trials and Big Meet to cheer their pool teams.
We’ve got all the results in now from the Swim Team Dual Meets on the 2018 Swim Team page. You can see where each pool ranks. In the C Division, we’ve made averages to manage the Off weeks each pool had and we’ve added the participation points from the Summer Swimmers Meet. These totals will be used on Saturday at Time Trials to determine lane placement and then carried forward to next week to add to the Big Meet results to determine winners in each division.
We’re coming into the final stretch of the Swim Team dual meet season. With the Week 4 results now posted on the 2018 Swim Team page, the leaders in each division are starting to form up! We will be posting the results next week as quickly as possible so we ask that all Swim Team Coaches make a special effort to get their results to Brandon, the VP of Swimming on Wednesday night as soon as you have them available.
There is only one week left of the dual meet season and we’re sure teams will be bringing there very best game next Wednesday!
