Virginia Club Swimming to Host ASA U. Nationals at the University of Virginia


Published


Virginia Club Swimming will host the Third Annual ASA University League National Championships in Charlottesville, Virginia on April 14-15, 2007 at the University of Virginia Aquatics and Fitness Center’s state-of-the-art natatorium. ASA U. was founded in response to the elimination of so many collegiate varsity swimming teams across the country. At the 2007 ASA U. Nationals, Colorado Swimming and Diving will defend its National Championship title won at Ohio State University last year. The collegiate club swimming league’s ten returning teams will be joined in April by ASA U.’s new members, including Elon University Swim Club, University of Oregon Swimming Club, and a former varsity team, the University of Vermont’s Men’s Swimming Club. UVM Men’s Swimming was eliminated as a varsity program in 2004. ASA U. is pleased to provide competitive swimming opportunities to former varsity squads and student-built swim clubs in the fight against the unfortunate wave of cuts in varsity swimming programs.

College and university swimming sports clubs are easily formed and open to any registered student (and at some schools, staff, faculty, and alumni).

ASA U. provides a National Championship meet, Regional Championship meets, dual meets, and other opportunities. ASA U. events promote the continuation of a lifetime of competitive swimming for fun, fitness, and health.
