Description

 

Hello DART Families,

 

We are excited to offer the December Arizona trials and finals travel meet on December 2-5 in Tempe, Arizona. Swimmers with qualifying times in AG 1, AG 2, AG 3, SR Speed, National Development, and National are eligible to attend this meet.

 

Due to Covid affecting travel meets, we are not able to offer this as a team travel meet. Swimmers travel with their families and/or other families.  Swimmers and families need to secure their own transportation, hotel, and meals. See more info on this below.

 

 

ARIZONA INFORMATION (DEC 2 – 5):

  1. Entry - We need to get an idea of how many swimmers are interested in attending this meet. To indicate interest, sign up HERE by Oct 1st. Swimmers will be billed a non-refundable $100 for coaches travel to hold a spot. 
  2. Late Entries – Swimmers can add after Oct 1st.
    1. Swimmers that qualify after Oct 1st (must have less than two cuts), will only be charged the $100 coaches travel fee.  Swimmers must achieve standards by Nov 8th
    2. Swimmers that commit after (that already have cuts) will be billed $150 for coach travel.
  3. Swim Meet Info:
    1. The meet is at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona on 12/2-5.  Swimmers must have a minimum of two qualifying times to attend.  Swimmers with a minimum of 2 qualifying times will also be able to enter 2 bonus swims for each qualifying time, thus assuring them a minimum of 6 swims.
    2. The 2019 meet sheet with the qualifying times is on the Dart Website at this link.   The 2021 meet sheet is not yet available; we have been told by the meet director that the times should be the same as in 2019.  We will update when we receive the official meet sheet.
