Hi NAC Families, We had a fabulous weekend at the BWA meets! This was by far the largest team NAC has ever brought to a USA meet, and our presence was known. Special thanks to all the parents who volunteered and/or jumped in to help, particularly during the developmental sessions where we had (again, by far) the largest number of swimmers from any team. Saturday was a bit of a zoo but we made it work!! To those of you who didn’t attend, we hope you enjoyed the Saturday off...

The anchors were installed Friday and we will now have blocks in 4 lanes ready for Wednesday’s practice. We received notice that our caps will be in this week and we are hoping our t-shirts will be ready for the meet next weekend.

Hi NAC Swimming Families, Welcome to the special Saturday edition of Shark Bites! (We will be taking tomorrow off.) Thank you so much for a successful meet after a challenging week with no pool! I appreciate how we came together as a team today and the resilience displayed by our swim families. It looked like the turnout for all-ages dryland was great, and I’m so thankful we had the opportunity to cross train. Meet results by session, including the disqualification (“DQ”) summary are attached. If your swimmer got DQ’d, don’t...

Hi NAC Swimming Families, Happy October! Everyone is getting settled into the swim team practice routine! We are excited to begin our third week and end the week with our Intrasquad meet! Schedule Update- Thursday Juniors There was a typo on our practice schedule with the dryland start time for the Junior group on Thursdays. Dryland runs from 5:35-6:05, not 5:30 as listed. Pool time is still 6:15-7:30. Revised schedule attached and uploaded on the website. Team Intrasquad Meet 10/9-- Last Chance to Commit Please commit for this weekend’s meet...

Where & When to Report for Practice If Dryland first: see “dryland info” below. Pool only or pool first: Last year, we had formal staging areas before practice.

Hi NAC Swimmers and Families, Happy September! Apologies for the double email this week! We wanted to clarify a few important things based on some questions we’ve been receiving and provide some updates, including meets for the weekend of 10/23-10/24. USA Registration We ARE automatically registering the full competitive team. We ARE NOT automatically registering developmental swimmers because those groups are designed to focus on learning, not competing. Most of our meets are USA, and many are for 9 and overs only. We are exploring some non-USA meet opportunities for...
