Welcome to Mission Viejo!  

 
 

We appreciate you traveling as the Mission Viejo Nadadores host the 2021 Jessie Rees Memorial Turkey Classic Meet. Please look at the following: negu.org/jessie/ to learn about our Jessie, a Nadador through and through who battled courageously with a brain tumor for a little less than a year. At the end of this welcome letter, please take a look at our flyer and join MVN in helping her Foundation, by donating toys throughout the meet for those that are still battling. 

We understand this last year has been rough and MVN’s hope is that we can provide you with an experience that’s as close to pre-pandemic conditions as possible. With that said, please be conscious of the fact we're still within the pandemic and to practice social distancing and mask wearing when possible.  

Please pick up your areas after the completion of each session. MVN needs your cooperation and collaboration in this matter. 

We wish all the athletes the best of luck and we hope you enjoy our beautiful aquatics center and our City!
