NNA News

 

NNA, As we begin the fall swim season, our schedule will once again

change and have some tweaks. First, Idlewild pool will be closing

after practice on Monday September 4th. All the practices that were

held at Idlewild will be moved over to Northwest pool.

Please take a look at the schedules and let me know if you have any

questions.

 

The upcoming NNA events for the fall season will be listed below on

the schedule and underlined. These events will need volunteers from

our team to help run smoothly. We also offer volunteer hours for any

person who helps out at our events. This will be helpful for any

community service that needs to be done or for some families

attending Manogue high.

 

We would like to do a team Halloween party sometime towards the

end of October. If you are interested in hosting, please email me.

 

We have our meet schedule for the fall season posted up on our web

site. It is now finalized. We are still going to try and add the last day

to sign up on our notifications so that people will get signed up on

time. Remember the sooner you sign up, the better. Some meets close

early if they fill up with too many swimmers. This usually happens

when the estimated timeline for the meet surpasses the usual 4-hour

rule for 12 and under swimmers.

 

Please help out the team by becoming an official. We need more to

help out athletes. More on officiating is listed below.

Meet and Events Recap:

 

As always, full results are available on our web sit when they are

available under the News tab.

 

Donner Dip

The Donner Dip went off with great water and great weather. We had

more adults than we anticipated. We might have a Senior Division

next year. Also, since everyone told me how easy the swims were, we

might make them longer next year.

 

Team Party at Wild Island.

What a great event. We had over 130 people from our team attend.

The catered food was great and it looked like everyone had a fun time.

I am pretty sure we are going to make the end of the summer party

and yearly event. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a

success.

 

NNA Novice Meet October 21st in Carson

We are going to try to host a swim meet in Carson for our annual

Halloween Novice meet. We will need some volunteers to help out.

Please email Jorie at nnaswimmeet@gmail.com to help out. Thanks.

 

 

Swimming officials needed

 

Why become a swim official?

 

As a parent of a swimmer, you have the opportunity to get involved with your

children and their sport in a significant way. Northern Nevada Aquatics needs

trained officials to provide fair and equitable competition for all swimmers. Having a

set standard of rules for the strokes and the races creates a controlled environment

for all of our athletes to compete in fairly.

 

What are the different roles for swim officials?

 

Most swim officials begin by becoming certified as Stroke & Turn Judges, ensuring

that our athletes consistently swim according to USA Swimming rules. Swim officials

are also needed to operate the electronic timing equipment and to manage the

administrative aspects (seeding, results, etc.) of the meet. After gaining more

experience, many of these officials advance to become Starters (ensuring that all

swimmers get a fair start) and Referees (in charge of the overall competition).

 

What kind of training is provided?

 

You’ll start by attending an officials clinic, where the rules of swimming and

procedures of officiating are presented and discussed. At your first several meets,

you’ll be “shadowing” experienced officials who will serve as trainers and mentors.

Training materials and additional clinics are readily available.

What are the benefits of being an official?

 

You’ll be close to the action. You’ll learn all the rules of the sport. You’ll be working

with the greatest group of volunteers in all sports. It’s a great way to meet future

Olympians—unless you already have one in your home!
