Please read through this email for important Reno Aquatic Club news.
King of the Hill
The next meet on our schedule is the King of the Hill meet, October 19 – 21 in Carson City. We would like to see 100% participation from RENO swimmers. This will be a great opportunity for our new swimmers to compete in their first swim meet. Please talk with your child’s coach to see what events he/she should do.
You can register two ways: online through SwimConnection or by mail.
Registering online allows for immediate confirmation that your entries have been accepted, but there is a service fee charge by SwimConnection. If you haven’t used SwimConnection before, click here for a tutorial.
If you’d prefer to mail your registration, click here for the meet sheet.
If you have any questions on the registration process, please let me know. Online entries close Wednesday, October 10. Mailed entries must have a postmark no later than Monday, October 8.
Volunteers Needed for Meet
Reno Aquatic Club hosts King of the Hill and it is a big fundraiser for our team. There will be several opportunities for you to volunteer and earn service hours. This meet would not be possible without the full support of our parents. Thank you in advance.
There will be a slight change in the dryland training schedule this week. The National group will have normal dryland this week. The Senior, Pre-Senior, and Orange will NOT have dryland Monday – Friday this week. Senior and Orange will have dryland on Saturday. Thank you for your understanding.
We Need More Officials
There is a severe shortage of officials for our local meets. Many of RENO’s current officials have swimmers who are older and will be retiring from officiating in the next year or so. It will be important for the next generation to fill the void.
If you have an interest in becoming more involved with your child’s swimming, I strongly encourage you to become an official. You do not have to have any swim experience. We are lucky to have a great training situation in Northern Nevada, and they will teach you everything you need to know.
Being an official helps you satisfy RENO’s volunteer requirements plus you get a front-row seat and free food at swim meets!
There will be a clinic for new/interested officials in Reno on Saturday, October 27 from 9 AM – 12 PM. Please click here for more information.
