Nevada State Championship Information

The Nevada State Swimming Championships will take place Friday, November 8 through Monday, November 11 in Henderson, NV. We would like to have the biggest group possible attend the meet! The meet does require the swimmers to obtain qualifying standards.  Click here to the time standards. We will have one more opportunity for swimmers to earn State cuts at our King of the Hill Meet in October.

Since the meet is in the Southern Nevada this year, I want to provide information as early as possible so families can plan their travel. The meet sheet is posted on the Boulder City-Henderson Heatwave's (the host team) website. The document says “pending” but I don’t foresee any major changes to the event schedule. If I hear of any big changes, I will communicate that ASAP.  Click here for the pending meet sheet.
Here’s some general information:
- There will be no team travel offered. Families will be responsible for all travel arrangements. I have secured a hotel block if you are interested. More info below.
- The coaches will be submitting the entries for each swimmer. The entry deadline is the end of October. More info to come. 
- Friday afternoon is the distance events (11-12 500 freestyle, 13-up 400 IM and 1650 freestyle). Warm-ups start at 2:30 PM and the meet starts at 3:30 PM.
- On Saturday - Monday, the meet is a prelims and finals meet for 11 and older swimmers. The 10-under swimmers will swim timed finals during the middle of the day.
- Prelims (11 and older) will start at 8:30 AM each day with warm-ups at 7:00 AM.
- 10-under swimmers timed finals will start no sooner than 12:30 PM on each day.
- Finals (11 and older) will start at 5:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday; Monday finals are TBD.
- Last year, we had many families leave early on Monday and scratched out of finals. Please be sure you make necessary travel arrangements, so your swimmer is able to participate in finals on Monday. Looking at Southwest flights, the 9:00 PM flight on Monday, November 11 should be late enough to accommodate your swimmer competing in finals. 
- For 10-under swimmers, if flying back to Reno, the 5:05 PM flight may be cutting it close. I would recommend booking on 6:15 PM just to be safe. 
Hotel Block
I am securing a 20-room hotel block for the Best Western Plus Henderson Hotel (1553 North Boulder Highway). You are more than welcome to stay wherever you’d like, but we stayed here last year and it’s very convenient to the pool and it was a quiet hotel. 
To book a room, call the hotel directly at 702 564-9200 and use the code “Reno Aquatic Club” when booking.
