The Novaquatics are ending 2017 with a Bang!
Upon securing victories at Winter Junior Nationals -West, and the local Winter Age-Group Champs, it was later announced in the month of December that the Novaquatics had achieved Gold Medal Status within USA Swimming’s Club Excellence Program. The Club Excellence Program is a USA Swimming recognition program that identifies and recognizes USA Swimming clubs for their commitment to performance excellence.
In its 17 th year, the Club Excellence program identifies clubs that execute strong, well-rounded programs to produce elite 18-and-under athletes. The top 20 clubs earn Gold level ranking and those rated 21-100 are designated as Silver honorees. The next 100 clubs are recognized at the Bronze level.
Based on performances during the 2017 long course season, NOVA was able to secure itself and be recognized among the elite clubs in the country by achieving Gold Medal status, placing our program 6 th Nationally.
It has been many years since the NOVA program has achieved this honor, only raising to the ranks of Silver medal for the past many years. However, thanks to the hard work and commitment of our athletes, coaches, and parents, were we able to achieve the highest level awarded.
