Competitive Swim Team
800 swimmers are on the competitive team. NOVA offers thirteen separate and progressive training groups, with swimmers who are compatible in ability, commitment level, and goals. Coaches work with athletes to set realistic development plans. Long-term goals are emphasized versus short-term results. The objective is long-term excellence at every level. Swimmers compete in both the short course and long course seasons and swim at championship meets regionally and nationally. NOVA hosts ten home swim meets per year. $30,000 in financial aid scholarships was awarded in the past year.
NOVA offers lessons to children starting at the age of three. The program is based on a proprietary and progressive learn-to-swim curriculum, conducted by trained instructors. The lessons program has five levels and focuses on core body movements, adding skills overtime. 5,100 lessons were administered in the last year. $5,000 was used to fund free lessons for underserved children in our community.
30 summer league teams and 425 youth participated in NOVA’s annual spring clinic sessions. The goal is to improve conditioning and technique prior to the start of the summer swim season.
NOVA provides daily training and coaching for the competitive adult swim team. Our nationally recognized Masters coach leads the program.
