NOVA is pleased to be moving forward with plans to add a 50 meter, Olympic-sized pool to its Gayton Road Aquatics Center in 2018. The pool will be named The Sharp Pool, in honor of Richard L. Sharp.
NOVA has become the go-to swim club for Richmond families for the past 30 years, and we are striving to provide future generations with the best possibilities for success - in and out of the water. Increasing pool capacity and offering access to a 50 meter pool is necessary to serve the needs of NOVA swimmers and members of our community.
NOVA's need to expand will fulfill two core objectives: to provide a quality training environment to all NOVA swimmers and meet the programming needs of the wider community. By expanding the NOVA Aquatics Center, NOVA will be able to serve more people, of all ages and abilities, who want to participate in the life-long sport of swimming.
