by Alyssa Jacobs, USA Artistic Swimming
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 2021 USA Artistic Swimming Convention will return to an in-person format this year in Reno, Nevada at the Atlantis Resort. From October 7-10th, USAAS coaches, athletes and judges will gather to discuss all things artistic swimming. This year’s convention will look much different than previous years with the goal of bringing in educational speakers and facilitating meaningful conversations to improve our sport. Topics will range from flexibility training with Anna Voloshyna to town hall-style discussions about the Athlete Bill of Rights and basics of club marketing. Professionals from outside of our sport will also be brought in to educate convention attendees about a range of topics including how to forge positive athlete-coach relationships and other important topics. The convention will culminate with the USA Artistic Swimming Awards Ceremony. The USA Artistic Swimming Foundation will also host a reception during the weekend.
Atlantis Resort and Casino in Reno offers amenities that will be sure to keep attendees entertained outside of convention programming. The property boasts an indoor and outdoor pool and whirlpool, an esports lounge, spa and full casino. The property also boasts several dining options and is located just 22 miles from Lake Tahoe.

“With the virtual convention experience in 2020, we were able to take care of governance-related business and we are excited to take the opportunity this year to provide more educational and purposeful experiences for our convention attendees. We look forward to hosting sessions geared toward development and education for our members. The Atlantis Resort and Casino is prepared to provide us an exceptional experience in Reno,” Baylee Robinson, USA Artistic Swimming Events Director, said.
