The RENO Aquatic Club is a non-profit organization founded in 1973 by Lash Turville. Since then, the team has been successful in varying levels of competition ranging from local to international swim meets. The team is based in Reno NV, serving the Reno-Tahoe area, and is the largest team in the region.
Our goal is to offer every member teaching and training that gives the athlete maximum long-term benefits in and out of the pool. The center of our coaching philosophy is to develop “life skills” like leadership, accountability and goal setting through fun structured practices with a focus on building a foundation of strong technique.
For close to 40 years we have consistently produced national caliber swimmers. Included among these elite athletes are National Champions and American Record Holders. Most significantly, our team places more graduating seniors onto collegiate swimming programs than any other in the Truckee Meadows.
As swimmers progress through the program they are given more responsibility for their performances. With this responsibility comes encouragement to participate in competitions regularly. Depending on the level and ability we offer the opportunity to race in swim meets around the Lake Tahoe area and across the nation. However, it’s important to understand that the majority of the team competes locally at a novice to intermediate level.
