The Ben Hair Memorial Swim and Dive Meet is held annually for area high schools at the University of Virginia Aquatic and Fitness Center. It is considered the premier high school swim and dive meet in Central Virginia. Additionally, the meet is VSI sanctioned by USA Swimming.

In 2011, the meet was officially changed from the City-County Meet, which only included high school teams from the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, to the Ben Hair Memorial Swim and Dive Meet. The meet now additionally includes teams from surrounding counties in Central Virginia.

The event is named to honor the memory of Ben Hair, a 2006 honors graduate and outstanding swimmer at Albemarle High School.

In 2011, Gordon Hair, Ben’s father, was recognized as a Distinguished Dozen by the Charlottesville Daily Progress for his volunteer service to the Central Virginia Community.
