Please note the following for this year’s event:

  • Members of the All Star Team will be comprised of the athletes who rank in the top five (5) of an event in each age group and gender.  All Stars will be identified for long course as well as short course.  The standings will be determined at the end of the Virginia Swimming championship meets for each season.   That is, the members of the All Star Team for long course will be based on the ranking at the end of long course Senior Champs and Age Groups Champs and likewise for short course.
  • All athletes attending the picnic lunch at Kings Dominion will pay for their lunches but that the price for all will be reduced.  This year the cost of the picnic for athletes will be $12. VSI will again pay for the lunch of any coach that attends as well as the Swimmer of the Year recipients. 


If you are interested in attending, please email Coach Jessica BY FRIDAY, APRIL 6th at  Please let me know the number of family members that will be attending (including the award winner), if you have a season pass, and if you would like to purchase a ticket to the park but NOT attend the banquet and lunch.  TAC will submit all the reservations and costs for the tickets – the costs will be billed back to your account directly prior to the event.


Congratulations to all of our TAC winners and to all on a GREAT 2017-2018 long course and short course season!  Just a reminder, our Annual TAC Awards Banquet will be held this summer - more information soon!


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.


Have a great remainder of the week and hope to see everyone at the 2018 Swim-a-thon on March 29th!
