For those teams using Team Unify please note that since the merger with Sports Engine a login email change on your site will change the login email for any team that you might belong to on TeamUnify, GoMotion, or SportsEngine. The suggestion from Sports Engine is for Oregon Swimming teams to create a new account within our system using an email address that can be passed along as your registrar changes. ie [email protected]. This is not necessary if it is not causing a problem for your team but it may make it easier moving forward. Also note, OSI no longer has access as an account admin to update the user contact information for accounts within our system. If a personal email address was used to set up the team within our system and that person is no longer handling registrations for your team then a new account must be created. We will be scheduling 2 informational zoom meetings for 2022 club registrars. Details to follow soon!

 


Las Vegas Open Water Champions Cup

The LV OW Champions Cup will serve as the selection meet for the 2021-22 USA Swimming Open Water National Team. It is also open to international athletes and clubs.

All information is available on the Event Landing Page on the Sandpiper Team Website. That page will be used to upload the most up to date information.

  • Entry information
  • Entries will only be accepted via OME
  • In order to have the proper event eligibility, we created separate OME pages for each race/division. Double check that you are entering the intended race when completing the OME.
  • The entry deadline is Wednesday, September 29 at 11:59pm PST
  • Payments can be made through OME or a check may be mailed to the address listed in the Race Information
  • If you have issues with OME, contact Macie McNichols ([email protected])
  • International athletes should contact Bryce Elser ([email protected]) to enter the event
  • Sandy Drake ([email protected]) will be our Meet Ref. Please contact her with any questions about officiating or the race itself.
  • The Elite 10K race will serve as the selection race for the 2021-22 US Open Water National Team. Contact Bryce Elser with National Team questions
  • At this time, we are not limited in the number of athletes we can have in each race. If the decision is made that we need to limit numbers, we will attempt to split races into heats accordingly. If we are forced to have hard maximum entry numbers, priority will go in order of date/time entries are received. Declined entries will receive a full refund.
  • Once entries are finalized, we will publish official race day schedules with check-in times & procedures, meetings, race start times, etc.
  • The race course will be open Thursday, October 7 for practice time. Specific times will be announced the week of the race. You can plan for a 2-3 hour window in the late afternoon/early evening.
  • A list of local pools for lap swim will also be provided
  • All coaches and athletes must have a COVID Waiver on file to be turned in at check-in. You may also send them digitally ahead of time to the race director, Michael Kinross
  • If an individual has previously competed in a Sandpiper hosted event since September 2020, they do not need to turn in a waiver.

Finally, if you have not already booked your hotels, we strongly recommend taking advantage of the hotel blocks we set up for our visitors. There are only two hotels on property at Lake Las Vegas and we have great rates at both of those hotels with NO RESORT FEE. The hotel information is available on the Event Landing Page.

MAAPP SAFE SPORT

Updated Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) Requirements

USA Swimming’s top priority continues to be creating healthy and positive environments free from abuse for all its members. As part of its commitment to safeguard athletes, USA Swimming has released an updated Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy (MAAPP) applicable to all USA Swimming Adult Participants, Zones, Local Swimming Committees (LSCs) and member clubs. These required updates come from the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the “Center”). USA Swimming’s updated MAAPP document has been approved by the Center and is required to be fully implemented by USA Swimming, its Zones, LSCs and member clubs. USA Swimming has set a deadline for those organizations to implement the policy in full no later than September 1, 2021; all organizations are encouraged to implement the MAAPP prior to the September 1 deadline.

To help prepare USA Swimming members, there are new resources available:

  · Four informative, hour-long webinars, with varying dates and times, to maximize membership participation.

  · An editable MAAPP 2.0 document for organizations to download and customize.

  · Educational documents to help guide and assist all USA Swimming member clubs.

For more information about MAAPP 2.0, please visit usaswimming.org/MAAPP.
