Big Meet 2022 is now in the history books!

First of all, our thanks to Ecclestone for putting on a spectacular meet.  In particular, we thank the committee, the staff, the countless volunteers, the City of Kirkland, the sponsors, and, of course, the parents and athletes.  What a great in-person comeback!
There are lots of results to share.  You can see the detailed event-by-event results on the Big Meet page.  The swim team score results have been updated on the Swim Team page.
Our congratulations to Fairview for winning the A Division, Glenmore for winning the Big Meet, Ecclestone for winning B Division, and Briarwood for winning C Division.  Congratulations to Elm Park for winning the 8 and Under and to Ecclestone for winning the Most Improved trophy!
In 2023:
  • Ecclestone will move from B Division to A Division
  • Briarwood will move from C Division to B Division
  • TMR will move from A Division to B Division
  • Westpark will move from B Division to C Division
We’d like to congratulate the Elm Park Men’s open Men’s 200M freestyle relay. Their time of 1.40.09 beat the NAA Record held by Sunnybrooke since 2009 with a time of 1:40.40.  The Elm Park team included: Kevin Bertrand, Jonathan Gagné, Daniel Parisien and Thomas Latimer.
The team has dedicated this race to the memory of Jason Ochiai, a longtime member of our NAA community and previous record holder of the Open Men’s relay team.
