Saturday Sprint Series are not part of the Alkek Cup, but are a fun match sprint event. April 2nd is 200m time trials for seeding purposes. Those who don't attend the time trials will get the lowest seeds on race night. No time trials on the three Saturday nights. Just seed the racers and straight to the match sprints.
