News and Announcements

Here are our preliminary practice times for this summer. The key word here is… preliminary. As with everything, these could change tonight or tomorrow, or May 31, or any time between now and then. But this is what we’re hoping for right now.

Again, our motive for pre-end-of-school practices is have them shorter but smaller. The preliminary times for after-school-ends practices are identical to the practice times we used during Phase III last year. In each case, there is space between practices to implement best practices as they will stand on June 1.

June 1- June 18

  • K-2 from 4:30-5:00
  • Grades 3-5 from 5:05-5:35
  • Middle school 5:40-6:15
  • High school 6:20-7:00

June 21-July 13 (or until the final dual meet is finished)

  • 8:00-8:50 (13 and over)
  • 8:55-9:45 (Family and 9-12 year olds)
  • 9:50-10:40 (Family and 9-12 year olds)
  • 10:45-11:30 (8 and under only)

July 14 (or after the final dual meet) – July 23

*Some combination of times for Champs qualifiers that will likely run from 9:00-11:30.

We have also posted our meet schedule on the MEET INFORMATION link. We have yet to determine the date of the first two meets as they will occur prior to the end of the school year.

A Letter from the Hess Family

Posted by Ashland Barracudas at Jul 6, 2020 4:03PM PDT

We received this from the Hess family.  Give it a good read to see how the Hess family and Connor’s Heroes- with a small assist from our team- have made a permanent impact on RVA kids who need bone marrow transplants.  Feel free to pass it along to any of your pledgers or donors.  This is why we do what we do.

Best news of the summer.
