I hope you are having a great week. Please read through this email for important information.
Idlewild Closure – June 29 – July 5
I was informed late yesterday that the City of Reno will be closing Idlewild at noon on June 29 and hoping to reopen on July 5. Unfortunately, the pool is having issues with the expansion joint in the middle of the pool. They hope to address this issue during the closure.
The City of Reno will be sending a revised schedule for our practice times during this week. I will let you know any revisions to the schedule as soon as I can.
Reno Aquatic Club swimmers had some outstanding performances at last weekend’s RENO Gamble. The swimmers continue to improve every single meet. We had multiple best times, and the coaching staff was pleased with how the swimmers competed in their races.
The Gamble brought in 450+ athletes. We had several out of town teams from California and Oregon. The meet is always a good showcase of our area to out-of-town swimmers and families.
It was great to see such a large RENO turnout. Thank you for signing up for the meet. Also, once again, a big thanks to our parent volunteers.
Next Local Meets
There are three more local meets this summer. There will be two short-course meets (Tahoe and High Country) and one will be long-course meet (NNA). Let’s have a great showing at the final meets of summer.
For those swimmers qualified and planning on attending JOs, please be aware the entry deadline is this Wednesday at midnight.
Orange/Blue Practice Change for this Wednesday
Due to a scheduling conflict, the Orange and Blue groups practice will be an hour earlier this Wednesday, June 27. Practice will be from 4:00 – 5:00 PM at Idlewild.
