We are happy to announce that RVAA will be having a season this summer. We are still working out some details due to COVID but we are planning on having 6 regular season meets and city county as we have in the past. The regular season meet dates are June 7th , June 14th , June 21st , June 28th , July 6th (that is a Tuesday) and July 12th. City County is scheduled for July 23rd and 24th. More information on volunteers, trainings, detailed meet schedule etc will be sent out in our formal newsletter closer to the start of the season. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on deck again this summer.

The Roanoke Valley Aquatic Association was officially organized in 1964 when the RVAA prepared the present constitution and by-laws under the direction and supervision of the late Ed Hughes. During the same year, the AAU officially sanctioned the RVAA.
The RVAA has grown from an organization with only a few hundred swimmers in 1964 to approximately 1,699 swimmers in 2012. Following the summer swim season each year, the RVAA holds a championship meet, involving all of the current year's participating teams. At the conclusion of the championship meet, the organization presents plaques and awards in each division for appropriate finishes. The RVAA also maintains, updates yearly, and publishes a record of all the fastest times in the individual age groups events for the championship meet.
The mission of RVAA is to promote the sport of swimming for participants of all ages and abilities throughout the Roanoke Valley Region. All swimmers, parents, coaches, and volunteers will be treated with the highest standards of courtesy and dignity in an environment that fosters fun, personal growth, fair play, and good sportsmanship. RVAA strives to ensure an equitable system of competition among swimmers. Its member swim clubs, in promoting team unity and competition, are charged with abiding by the letter and spirit of the RVAA rules.
