I hope everyone had a wonderful morning and is enjoying the warm weather!
It is an exciting week for our high school swimmers. The Northern Nevada Regional Championships kicks off Friday in Carson City. Please continue to read through this email for information on Regionals and other important RENO news.
High School Regionals
Several of RENO’s Senior and Pre-Senior swimmers will be competing for their respective high schools at the Regional Championships on Friday and Saturday in Carson City. The top-3 in each individual event and relays will qualify for the State Championships next Saturday in Las Vegas.
All the individual events will be contested as prelims on Friday. The top-16 times will advance to Saturday’s championship session with the top-8 swimming for a chance to go to State.
If you don’t have a high school swimmer and are free on Saturday, I highly recommend you attend the meet. It is very exciting and there will be some fast swimming!
Friday: warm-ups at 1:00 PM; meet begins at 2:00 PM
Saturday: warm-ups at 9:00 AM; meet begins at 10:00 AM
Cost of admission: Adults - $10; Students - $5; Senior Citizens (62 and older) - $3; Child (8-under) – free
The psych sheet for the weekend has not been released, but I will post it on the RENO website when it is available.
Are you interested in becoming a swim official for USA Swimming? If so, there will be a clinic on Tuesday, May 22 at 5:30 PM in south Reno.
As a member of USA Swimming, we are required to provide officials for swim meets. Many of our current officials have a child/children on the team who will be graduating in the next few years. It is very important we have the next generation of officials stepping in. You do NOT have to have prior swimming experience. In fact, many USA Swimming officials had no history in swimming before they started officiating.
Thank you to all of our current officials. We greatly appreciate your work!

The RENO apparel store is now open for business! You can order RENO shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and more. Orders will be shipped directly to you. The team will receive a portion of each sale. Please note: the average turnaround, with standard shipping, is roughly two weeks.
