Oro Valley’s Aquatic Center is celebrating big time, not only the completion of Phase 1 of their center, but also the announcement of their hosting the U.S. National Synchronized Swimming Championships, in 2014. Though it is over a year away the announcement came as a big surprise for the new center.
The announcement was made after remarks from Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath, by Vince Trinidad, the Director of Sports Development at MTCVB. The Championship Sites Committee of the U.S. Synchronized Swimming was who recommended the Town of Oro Valley to host. The championships will be a five day event to go from April 8 – 12, 2014.
After the good news, the Oro Valley Mayor and several council members made good on a promise to test out the new pool, and jumped in.
