THERE ARE STILL SPACES TO JOIN US - REGISTER NOW!
Due to construction at the Holiday Inn, we will not have classes Sept 21-28. The project is slated to take 10-14 days, so an exact date of reopening will be posted ASAP! Registration is still continuing and is open. Current swimmers will be given an extended fall session past the original Dec 6th end date, with exact details to be announced as soon as the construction is completed.
NJAC is excited to announce that we will be opening our Morristown Fall session on October 5th. This program is on Sunday mornings and will be 9 weeks long. Classes will be October 5-December 7th from 9-11am at The College of Saint Elizabeth. To register and for more details, visit the registration link above!
Our fall registration is live and is now interactive, showing you our available class spaces in real time. There are only 6 spaces available in each time slot, so register early to get your top choice! Please note that we build all of our classes personally to make sure that your child is in the most appropriate spot. Your registration acts as a class request, and we will contact you if we feel another class is a better group for you. At NJAC, we realize that convenience is of utmost importance to our parents, so we will work to get siblings in the same or back to back classes and to customize your experience with us. We are open to suggestions and requests!
We have a NEW private lesson system, where you can register for privates during many more time slots! Coach Derek will be teaching a lot of our private lessons this fall, and his schedule is already live. More instructors will be added soon! There is only one opening in each time slot, but you can book a group of 1, 2, or 3 swimmers with a private instructor during all of those slots.
We look forward to having you with us!
NJAC Swimmer Regan Kology places 1st in USA Swimming's Open Water Nationals to be crowned 18-UNDER NATIONAL CHAMPION
Last week at Castaic Lake in California, Regan Kology had the pinnacle weekend of her life, swimming the 10K and 5K at Open Water Nationals. In the 10k, Regan placed 10th overall in the United States and 3rd for 18-unders. She then swam the 5K two days later, placing 7th overall and 1st for 18-unders to take home the gold medal. This is the fastest open water meet held in the United States this year, and it is used as a qualifying meet for all of the World Championships in 2014.
As a result of her placements, Regan qualified for two world teams! First, her 5K win qualified her to travel with the United States Junior Pan Pacific Team who will be competing in Hawaii on August 31! Regan also qualified to travel to Israel with the US Junior World Team, but since she cannot compete in both meets, she has chosen to represent the US in Hawaii this summer.
Regan Kology is no newcomer to NJAC. In fact, she and her mom were one of a small group that helped start a tiny little swim business called Marcelliano Swim School almost 10 years ago. Today, that school has grown to be North Jersey Aquatics, and Regan will be graduating as the swimmer having been in our programs since day 1 so many years ago. Leighann and Regan have been working together since Regan's first day of competitive swimming at age 8!
A senior at Chatham High School, Regan will be attending Harvard in the fall and swimming for their Division I program. She will continue to compete and train for open water swimming in the US. Her highest goal would be to qualify for the Olympic Team in open water at the next summer Olympics!
