High Performance Camp Information

We are busy finalizing plans for our 10th Annual High Performance Camp, Sept. 19-21 at Woodward. In this email you will find some important reminders regarding the camp.  Attached you will find a reminder list, liability waivers, and fundraiser information. All attendees—athletes, coaches and judges—must submit a liability waiver.   Any attendees of minor age must have this signed by a parent/legal guardian.  You do not need to complete the page on Medical History–There are a large number of registered coaches and athletes with expired pro or athlete memberships.  This is a sanctioned event, and these must be up to date in order to attend–no exceptions!  Chris Erickson has emailed all clubs that have a coach or athlete who has not renewed.  MANY OF THE COACHES ON THIS LIST DO NOT HAVE CURRENT BACKGROUND CHECKS.  If this is the case, it is possible that the background check will not be cleared before the camp.  If your coach cannot attend, and you will be replacing the coach, please make sure you notify me by Wednesday September 17th with the coach’s name and USAG number so that I can verify.  Athlete renewals are easier–you just have to pay their dues!  Again, if the name (athlete or coach) is not cleared before the camp, the coach and/or athlete may not attend the camp.  All athletes must be accompanied by a coach! I have also attached information about our team building Fundraiser “Region 7 Strong” to continue raising money for the American Cancer Society.  I hope you will consider betting on one of our athlete teams.  Winning bets will be awarded a coupon for free registration to 2015 Regional Congress!  You can bid on a team during registration or up until 8:30am on Saturday (end of warm-up). Lastly, and a huge favor to me, if you have any questions about the camp, please have a coach or judge (or club employee) contact me. Please do not have family members emailing or calling me.  I REALLY appreciate that!! See you all next week!

Save the Date!

Save the Date! November 1-2, 2014

The Virginia National Association of Women’s Gymnastics Judges would like you to SAVE THE DATE for the VIRGINIA GYMNASTICS JUDGING CRITIQUE CLINIC scheduled for November 1st & 2nd, 2014.

The Judging Clinic Committee Members would like FEEDBACK regarding YOUR SPECIFIC INTEREST in participating in this clinic offered by the Virginia Judges held prior to the 2014-2015 competition season.

It is important to relay that there will NO LONGER be a Judges Cup held in VA. In place of Judge’s Cup, we wanted to provide an opportunity for coaches and athletes to work in small groups with judges. It is our hope that you come away from this clinic with a greater understanding of how to better the routines presented in competition and see improved scores for the upcoming season.

We want to place the clinic in an area closest to those who want to attend. Please take the time to fill out this quick survey by clicking on the google doc link below and please be sure to answer every question so that we can best meet your needs.
