NTA operates out of multiple practice facilities. NTA is a 501(c)(3) board-directed and parent supported organization committed to:  

  • Developing each athlete’s potential to the fullest by teaching stroke techniques, building endurance and skills for racing, and motivating each athlete to achieve his or her best.
  • Providing athletes an opportunity to engage in a wholesome, lifesaving, lifetime activity.
  • Promoting physical fitness and good patterns of physical development while encouraging proper conditioning and health habits.
