Scoring!

Hi everyone,

Here is how scoring is going to work for the FCTC races:

 

- Different point values are signed to athletes based on finishing place in their division (collegiate male/collegiate female) with the fastest athletes receiving the most points. Points vary based on the number of participants (so there is no set value for say, 5th place).
-  Only the top five male and top five female from each team can score (so if UM brings 20 guys, only a quarter can earn points for UM though the other 15 can be “place holders” putting other teams’ athletes lower in the mens classification).
- The teams are then ranked by total individual points (the total of all men and women).
- These rankings are then used to assign “team points” where the school with the most individual points gets the most team points (last season with 10 teams, the equation worked out that the first team received 100, 2nd got 90 points, and so on).
- Teams are ranked by the best 4 races (including the conference championship in the spring) of the seven total. The total team points of their best 4 of 7 is what decides the conference title.
Thanks to Brian Van Cleave of UMiami for summing it up in English =)

Xterra Wetsuits!

Hi guys!

The ERAU Triathlon Club and XTERRA WETSUITS have teamed up for 2012!  XTERRA WETSUITS has some great high quality products that are backed with a great return policy and warranty.  Take advantage of their 30-day return policy by taking your suit for a test swim, and if the suit doesn’t provide you with a perfect fit, you can return or exchange your suit.

 

Our club code is CC-EMBRY , be sure to enter this at checkout to receive some very very discounted prices.  Click here for current pricing information. Using the code also racks the team up rewards points that we will put towards a club wetsuit or something.

 

A quality entry level triathlon wetsuit will run you $400-$600. These are just $160. Seriously a good deal. Be sure to order the full long sleeve suit – the sleeveless ones are still alot of hassle but dont give you as much warmth/speed. I would also reccommend ordering two (2) suits of different sizes to make sure you get a good fit, then send one back. You should choose the wetsuit that is the smallest you can get into with slight difficulty – if you slide right in its too big.
