WHEN: Saturday, November 10th
General Session Warm-ups: 8am, Meet Starts at 9am
(If you are swimming the mile or 400IM- Warm up 6:30, Session Starts 7am.)
The meet is a packed-full of great swims and is over by lunchtime!

If you are not a member of USMS, then you will need to pay a One Time Event Fee of $15 (covers liability insurance).
ALSO- if you are signing up with a One Time Event Fee- you CANNOT swim in relays since you will be considered an “unattached” swimmer.
If you swim with a club and would like your swims to count for records, Top Ten USMS, or swim in relays- please consider registering for USMS.
Mark your calendars!

What a great clinic! Special thanks to Deniz Hekmati for leading us through swimming-specific stretches & strength training exercises!
We learned about static and dynamic stretching, principles of strength training and we even had the opportunity to transition right onto the blocks and work on swimming starts!

Here is some more info on the Las Vegas Meet from the Meet Director:
We are excited to announce that our annual Las Vegas Masters meet is now held at the UNLV Buchanan Natatorium, which recently cut the ribbon as the Jim Reitz Pool!
The “2018 Fabulous Las Vegas Masters SCY Meet at UNLV” will be on Saturday, January 20, 2018 with warmups beginning at 2pm, first event at 3pm. Our Masters meet will follow the UNLV Rebels collegiate swim meet.
Online entry is open now! For those of you who like to be first to sign up (ie Freshley, wink wink), you’ll have to battle it out for 2nd, as a speedy young woman from The Olympic Club already got in first! We look forward to a fun and fast swim meet with all of you from clubs all around the U.S. and Canada. Tell your friends!
The pool is walking distance to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hofbrauhaus, and Hyatt Place, and a VERY short drive from the airport. Make sure to read all our published info regarding the location of the UNLV pool. It doesn’t have a real address, so use the map tips on our online entry info.
