The NOVA Aquatics of Virginia facility at Regency is part of the ongoing adaptive reuse of the former mall and vacant department stores. Formerly a Macy’s department store, the natatorium features an eight lane 50-meter competition pool and two three-lane 25-yard warm water pools. These pools support all of NOVA’s current swim programming, including their competition team and swim opportunities for HCPS students. Additional facilities include team rooms, showering and changing areas, and ample deck space for swim meets and spectator seating. NOVA at Regency also provides additional office space for the team’s coaching and administration staff, and offers an on-site swim shop.
