NWAA WEEKLY UPDATE – 1/17/2022                                                




The only change this week is on Friday, January 17th. Due to a HS Swim Meet, there will be no practice for the ALL GROUPS at the BCC. There will still be practices at the WLFC as well as the Friday Night at the Races in Springdale.


The following are the remaining dates where there will be changes to the practice schedule at the BCC:

Tuesday, February 1st – Dive Meet – No Practice for GW. Senior II, Senior I, and TS will have adjusted times.

Friday, February 25th – HS State Dive Meet – No Practice for All Groups

Saturday, February 26th – HS State Swim Meet – No Practice for All Groups




As soon as we receive the specific information from the host team, we will email everything out to all participants as well as post it to the event page.




Berzerker Heartbreaker Invitational – Webb City, MO – February 11&12 – Registration Deadline – January 25th – This meet will be for the majority of swimmers that are not in HS. The HS conference meet is that Saturday in Fayetteville. Please check with your swimmer’s lead group coach to see if this meet is right for them.


February Frenzy – Bentonville, AR – February 18th – We are currently working on the sanction for this meet. This meet will serve as a last chance meet for swimmers to qualify for the ARSI Age Group Championship meet. We will also run 25s of all strokes to provide the last opportunity for our 8&unders to participate in those events this short course season. It is our goal to have this meet information available for your viewing prior to the end of the month at the latest.


Freaky Fast Last Chance – Bentonville, AR – February 27th – We will be running a last chance meet for all swimmers that participated in the HS State Meet the day prior on Sunday, February 27th. We will run every non HS event so that swimmers can take advantage of the rest for that meet. The meet information for this meet will be available by the middle of February at the latest.




We want your healthy recipes! Post your go-to recipes for fueling your swimmers before, during, and after meets and practices! Let’s see how many we can get! Post to Facebook and/or Instagram and tag us! No social media? No problem! Email [email protected] and our Social Chair will post it to our accounts!




If you haven’t had a chance,  please complete the 2022 Merchandise Survey. Please only complete the survey once, so we do not have duplicate responses. 


We will be accepting responses until January 19, 2022




We have enjoyed reading the merchandise suggestions in the survey.  We will be researching these suggestions to see if there are items we are able to sell in the future.  A few of the suggestions are items that are currently available from our D&J Sports team store.  These items may get overlooked as they are on the bottom of the page and take a moment to load (for me anyway!).  You may have to choose “load next items” to see everything available.




If you have any merchandise questions please contact Mitzi @ [email protected]




Dr. Swiggart will be back at the BCC tomorrow, Tuesday, January 18th, from 5:00-7:00pm. If you haven’t signed up yet, the link to the sign-up genius is below. The consent to treat form is attached as well. We hope that as many swimmers as possible take advantage of this opportunity.










Please make sure that your swimmer has their membership card to scan in when they enter the BCC for practice. This is important for the BCC to know who is in the building on what days. If your swimmer does not have a card for themselves, please see the front desk and inform them that they are a member of the NWAA Sharks. They provide members of our program individual cards to each swimmer due to the fact that all of us enter in the back. Thank you very much for your cooperation with this!




Thank you to Jenni Combs, NWAA Social/Communications Chair, and Megan Peters, NWAA Volunteer Coordinator, for running the New Parent Meeting. If you have recently joined the Sharks and need access to this video, please reach out to me and I will send it to you.




Due to high volume of emails, we have an email address available for all your billing needs. If you have questions about your bill or you need to stop payments from being auto-drafted from your account, email [email protected]. Please remember: In order to stop payments from your account for the following month, you must inform the club no later than the 15th of the month at the new email address [email protected]. Moving forward, please email this account as opposed to the coaching staff regarding your billing questions.






2021 Team Shirts/Swim Caps

If your swimmer has not received their 2021 team shirts/caps:

BCC HH/GW – look for Beckey at practices 

WLFC HH/GW – see Coach Kayleigh

Seniors/Makos/Tiger Sharks – email Mitzi 


We would like to make sure that every new swimmer receives their shirts and caps as quickly as possible, so please make sure that you reach out if you have not received them yet. 


NWAA Sharks Classifieds (this is also the name of the group!), a Facebook group was created if you have swim items you would like to sell or if you are in search of an item to purchase.  Please add swim items that you no longer need that someone else may be able to use!   


You may have to login to Facebook first, but this should take you directly to the page:
