The 2016 JRAC Championship Meet will be held at the NOVA Aquatic Center on July 28-29. This post will be updated with information about the meet as it becomes available, so check back here often in the upcoming week. Important updates and notices will also be sent out by email.
- The championship roster is here. Congratulations to all who made the team!
On Wednesday (July 27) the championship team will bowl at Sunset Lanes at 1pm. We have reserved 6 lanes but could add more if needed. More details will be posted later!
Note that the entries may be changed due to unexpected withdrawals; we will notify any swimmer whose events are affected.
Below are links to timelines for each day. Timelines are approximately 30 minutes longer than 2015. These are guidelines only. The meet will likely run a little slower, but please allow yourself time to get to NOVA well in advance of your event/s.
Warmup times for Ridgetop are 8am on Thursday (Lane 5) and 7:30am on Friday (Lane 7). Please get your swimmers to the pool early enough so that they can be on the pool deck in their swim suit when warmup starts.
Nutrition and hydration is important! Bring plenty to drink as well as healthy snacks. There will also be food for purchase at NOVA; click here for the menu of choices.
Satellite parking will be available at Striker Field in West Creek, off of Patterson and 288. You can drop their swimmers off at NOVA and then drive out there to be bused in. You will need to enter Striker Field through GATE 4:
- If you are coming in from Patterson Avenue and entering the east entrance (the one closer to Lauderdale Dr), use the first Gate entrance on the left after the lake.
- If you are coming in from I-288 or the west Patterson Ave entrance, use the last Gate entrance on the right, just before the lake.
Social media: you can get updated information about Champs by liking the JRAC in RVA Facebook page or by following the twitter feed. You do need a Facebook account for that page, but the twitter page is public and an account is not necessary. During the meet, results will be posted in the Meet Mobile app, which can be downloaded onto your smartphone.
Don’t forget our celebration dinner after Champs! We will meet at Jason’s Deli at Willow Lawn on Friday at 5:30pm. We will continue the celebration at Ridgetop…which will stay open until 9pm.
