We are now accepting bids for the 2014 Region 7 Pre-Season Prep Training Camp scheduled for June 27-29, 2014. This camp is for gymnasts who competed Levels 7-10 in 2014 and intend on competing at Levels 8-10 in 2015. This camp fills each year, and has been very successful with building technique and teaching supplemental training methods to our gymnasts and coaches. Hosting a camp is a great fundraising opportunity for clubs.
Attached is the bidding information and form. The criteria that the RAC will consider when reviewing bids include the size of the facility, equipment (variety, type and amount) and training stations available in the facility, and the organizational experience of the host club. It is essential that the club have 2 floor areas, or the equivalent in alternative training spaces. Clubs submitting bids should include a floor plan of the facility.
Bids should be submitted to Linda Johnson, JOCC, on or before January 15, 2014.
Thank you very much! We are looking forward to another great season in 2014!

On Vault, there will no longer be any deduction in the Bronze Vault 2 (run, handstand flat back on mat stack) for one or both hands being past the line on the mat. There does not have to be a line on the mat.
On Bars, page 4, G, 2, b – there was an incorrect row in that table that has now been deleted. The INCORRECT row was “46 degrees or more from vertical, 0.15-0.20, award VP”. Please cross this off on your old lists.

The 2013 Judges Cup information is available here.
With the launch of the new athlete registration season, the introductory athlete membership was applicable only to those athletes participating in the Xcel Program: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond. However, Women’s Program has decided to also include the Women’s JO Program Levels 1 and 2 into that structure (reminder the new Level 3 was the old Level 4 and remains $49).
Therefore, the Introductory athlete membership which is $15 online, now applies to Xcel Program: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond AND Women’s JO Program Levels 1 and 2. The website and forms have been updated.
As of August 1, all of the old levels will be dropped from the USA Gymnastics computer system and only the new levels will appear, which will make things a little less complicated for our members.
