NEGU Foundation
 
For the month of November, we are asking NOVA families to help us support the Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) organization that encourages children who are battling cancer.  
 
The organization was started by a  young swimmer.   Jessie Rees was an age group swimmer with the Nadadores, until she started having headaches and blurred vision at the age of 11. She was diagnosed with DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor on March 3, 2011 and succumbed to the disease on January 5, 2012. 
With the little amount of time she had left, Jessie never dwelt on herself, but wanted to make the kids that had to do their cancer treatments in the hospital feel more comfortable and started a Foundation that has lived on and has changed kids fighting cancer across the world.  
 
We are  asking NOVA families to bring small toy items that fit into her JoyJars, so we may donate to her foundation and help those kids that still need a little Joy in this world. You may give your small toy donation to any NOVA coach.
 
 
You can also set your Amazon Smiles donations to the Jessie Rees Foundation.

NOVA Team Uniform

Much like any professional sports team would take the field wearing their team uniform, the Novaquatics expects each of its athletes to be outfitted in its team outfit.

This includes, but is not limited to, SPEEDO brand team sweats, SPEEDO branded team competition suits, t-shirts, and NOVA caps.

 

Training Equipment

Training equipment is also very important to the training and development of our athletes. Non-ownership of the equipment designated by your coach offers a sever detriment to the training experience.  Please confer with your coach for the necessary equipment needed for your training group.

All swimming training supplies and apparel (except for parkas) can be purchased from our team supplier, Competitive Aquatic Supply.
