Correction in the report from Big Meet

Our apologies.  Yesterday we incorrectly identified TMR as the winner of the Most Improved trophy.  Upon review of the results today we realize that it was Glenmore who won the Pat Ford Most Improved trophy.  Our apologies to everyone for the confusion and our congratulations to Glenmore on this achievement and a remarkable year!

Pre-Junior Synchro Finals Results

Our thanks to Elm Park for putting on an awesome Pre-Junior Synchro Final. The cuteness factor was off the scale!  The results from Pre-Junior Synchro are now available on the 2019 Synchro Page.

Then we have Senior Synchro Finals on Wednesday August 14th at Valleycrest.  Warm up for solo 3:00-3:30 followed by duet warm up 3:30-4:00.


The 2019 Big Meet is in the books! (and online)

Our thanks to Glenmore for putting on a spectacular Big Meet for 2019.  We know the planning went on all year but the results really showed.  In particular we want to thank the officials, the staff, the pool parents, the sponsors and the countless volunteers who made the event possible!

Congratulations to each and every athlete who competed all season and then brought their very best to the Big Meet.

Not only did Glenmore put on an awesome event, their athletes delivered in the pool as well! Our congatulations to Glenmore on winning A Division, 8 and Under, Most Improved and the Big Meet.
Wow – that’s a lot of hardware!

Congratulations to Valleycrest on winning B Division. Valleycrest will compete in A Division in 2020!

Congratulations to Westpark on winning C Division. Westpark will compete in B Division in 2020!

Complete team results are on the 2019 Swim Team page.  Detailed event-by-event results are on the 2019 Big Meet page.

Exciting news for Junior Finals!

We’re very excited to announced that Claudia Holzner and Audrey Joly who were Pan American Games Gold medalists and part of the Canadian Artistic Swimming National Team will be at the NAA Junior Synchro Finals at Thorndale Pool Monday, August 12th at 4pm.  Claudia and Audrey will be signing autographs and will take pictures with their gold medals!




All Time Trials Results are now online

Our thanks to Westminster, Surrey and Westpark for putting on some awesome Time Trials and in particular to the officials, parents and countless volunteers who made these three simultaneous meets possible!

The results are now in and have been compiled together.
You’ll find links to all the files on the 2019 NAA Results page. We have separate files for A, B and C  and a combination file for all three events merged together.

Remember that according to our Constitution, no pool can have more than 3 swimmers in any event for the Big Meet, so if you see an “EX” next to a swimmer’s results, that will mean that the swim was considered an Exhibition swim.  This can happen when three athletes compete in the preliminary and only the top two can move on to the Big Meet.

Also, after placing the top twelve competitors in an event, the next four competitors are listed as Alternates.  There are inevitably some scratches from qualifiers at the Big Meet so if you are an Alternate, please make sure you’re not only there, but available to the marshals at the time of your event!

We encourage everyone to come to Glenmore next Saturday for our 2019 Championship Big Meet!

Swim Team Dual Meet season is over. Here are the results so far

Another Dual Meet season is complete for the NAA.  You can find all the team scores on the 2019 Swim Team page.  For C Division, we have replaced the off-weeks with an average score of the other meets for that pool .  These results will determine the lane placement in tomorrow’s Prelimins.

Now we shift into Finals mode in two parts.  Tomorrow will be the Preliminaries for each division.  A, B and C divisions will compete and then results from all three meets will be compiled together to find the top twelve swimmers in each event.  No pool can have more than two swimmers in a single event so for 10 and under swimmers who might have three swimmers in a Preliminary, only the top two can move on to the Championship finals.

From across the NAA the top twelve swimmers and Relays in each event will compete next week in our annual Championship Big Meet!

Congratulations to each and every athlete who contributed to your team in the dual meet season and good luck to all athletes who will be competing in the prelims tomorrow and the Big Meet next week!
