Email Blast # 1 10.1.22

Hi everyone,

We are now taking initial club reservations for the 2022 TYR Las Vegas Super Finals Invite! I apologize for taking this long to get this information out to you, but I appreciate your patience.

We will once again be hosting this meet at Utah Tech's beautiful facility in St. George, Utah. The meet will run Thursday December 8 through Sunday December 11. Please refer to the attached preliminary meet form for more information. I've also provided travel information later in this email.

Thank you to Olympus Aquatics for co-hosting the event with us. Paul Szuszkiewicz will be our Meet Ref and Alina de Armas our Admin Official. Both are cc'd on this email.

Meet Concept

The main concept behind this meet is to create a competitive Team atmosphere and competition. We want teams to be able to travel with all of their training groups and make it an all around fun competition. Therefore, if a team is able to bring more than 25 athletes, there will NOT be time standards on the events for those teams. If a team is coming with less than 25 athletes, those swimmers will be subject to the National 'A' time standard in their age group.

In addition, we are capping teams at 50 athletes to help keep the team race competitive. If this rule will be an issue for your club, email me and we can discuss potential solutions. Again, this meet is all about TEAM.

See the attached tentative meet form for all of the details.

SUPER Final Format

In prelims, all age groups will be raced together (in 10 lanes). We will then offer a heat in finals for the top 8 11-12s, 13-14 [or 11-14 depending on the event] A & B Final, 15-Over A & B Final, and a SUPER FINAL. The Super Final is the fastest 8 qualifiers, regardless of age. If you have an up-and-coming thirteen-year-old, they will get the chance to race in finals against the bigger, older athletes. It’s a super fun format that works really well.

The attached meet form provides all of the nuances of the finals system. We will have a final sanction approval soon.

How to Reserve Your Club's Spot
We will be taking visiting club reservations in two "Waves". Each wave has an online form that will provide us with some basic estimates on numbers and allow you to put down a down payment that will go towards your team's entry fees. The Waves are broken down as follows:

· Wave 1 priority: Clubs that attended in 2021. Clubs in Wave 1 will have from now until October 16 at 11:59pm PST to reserve their spot.

Wave 1 club's will fill out this form

· Wave 2 priority: Anyone else who is interested in attending Super Finals or Wave 1 clubs who are tardy to the previous deadline. The Wave 2 Form will not be active until Monday, October 17 at 12:00am PST. The Wave 2 form will be turned off at the entry deadline or when the meet is full, whichever comes first.

o   Wave 2 club's will fill out this form

At this time, we don't have a maximum number of athletes we will permit. We will see what our entry numbers look like and work with the facility to decide if/when we need to cap the meet. Either way, I wouldn't drag your feet with your commitments.

Event File

As soon as we have an Event File, I will email it out and upload it to our website. You should still be able to run eligibility reports using USA Swimming 'A' times as the standard.

Travel and Further Information
We have set up a Meet Landing Page on the Sandpiper's Website: https://www.teamunify.com/team/scsccsnv/page/system/res/180371. This page will be continuously updated with files and information. I urge you to check it out for travel recommendations. If you are planning to fly, the Las Vegas airport is an easy 2-hour drive to St. George. There is also an airport in St. George (SGU). Both airports have rental car companies attached, so you can rent cars on site.

We have 2 hotel blocks in place that will fill quickly! If you get shut out, let me know and I will try to get more rooms added to the block. That information is available on the Event Landing Page.

We are thrilled to host you all! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
