The entry deadline is this Wednesday at midnight! Thank you all for who have registered. Let’s have a great showing at this end of the summer championship meet.
Silver Bear Novice Meet
If your child is new to meets, Silver Bear Swim School is hosting a novice meet this Saturday at Northwest. If you are interested in having your child participate, please RSVP to me by 9 PM tonight. Thank you.
NNA Silver State Championships
25 RENO swimmers participated in the NNA meet last weekend. The coaching staff kept me updated on all of our great swims while I was in California. We had several new State and JO qualifying times. We also had many event winners. Way to go!
As of writing this the meet results have not been posted on the Pacific website, so I haven’t seen a full list of our swims. I will post more highlights next week once I get the chance to review the results.
A big thank you to all of our parents for volunteering as officials and timers at the meet.
