It is hard to believe July is half over! Please read through this email for important Reno Aquatic Club information…
No Practice this Friday and Saturday
Due to the NNA meet, we will not have practice for any groups—including the Summer Program—on Friday and Saturday this week.
NNA Silver State Championships – July 20 – 22
Thank you for those who registered for the NNA meet. We will have 25 RENO swimmers attending. This is a good amount considering we had 25 last weekend at Tahoe. Later this week, I will send an email with more information to the families attending the meet.
High Country Championships at Minden – August 3 – 5
This meet is our end of the season championship meet! We would love to see a great RENO turnout. This is a short course meet and it will be an excellent opportunity for swimmers to pick-up Nevada State qualifying times before we go on our team break.
With school starting in early August it can be tough to be at a swim meet the weekend before class starts. With that being said, we would like to see swimmers attend a minimum of two days of this meet. Ideally, swimmers attend all three days, but we understand if this does not happen.
Tahoe Meet Recap
RENO swimmers had fun and swam several best times last weekend at the Swimming at Altitude Meet in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Great job to all the swimmers! Congratulations to the following swimmers:
- Aidan Pflieger – Boys 14 High Point
- Addison Crain – Girls 13 High Point Runner-Up
- Oliver Raker – Boys 8 High Point Runner-Up
Sectionals this Weekend

- Alexia Taylor-Arredondo
- Claire Trevithick
- David McLean
- Emma Karam
- Julie Abrigonde

RENO Team Break
Our annual summer break will be from August 6 - August 19. There will be no practice for any groups during this time.
Team Photo and Annual Meeting
RENO’s annual meeting and team photos and brunch will take place the morning of Saturday, August 25. More information to come.
Fall Practice Schedule
The fall practice schedule is to be determined. I have submitted our lane requests to the City of Reno, but they have not provided lane allocations yet. As soon as I get this information, the coaching staff and I will create the best possible practice schedule for all groups.
Here are the next meets RENO will be attending:
- Sectionals – July 19 - 22 (qualified athletes)
- NNA Trials and Finals Meet – July 20 – 22
- Far Westerns – July 26 – 29 (qualified athletes)
- Western Zones Senior Championship – July 31 – August 4 (qualified athletes)
- Futures Championships -- August 2 - 5 (qualified athletes)
- High Country Championships in Minden – August 3 – 5 (all athletes not attending Western Zones or Futures)
Thank you and have a great week!
