Attached is the schedule for Level 9/10 Regionals, Level 9 and 10 Regional Announcements, JO Qualifiers Meeting Brochure, Publicity Release Form (Level 10), Athlete Bio Form (Eastern and JO National Qualifiers), All Star Qualification (Level 10). (also posted on the Region 7 and Sportsplex websites)Roster: An updated roster of Level 9 and 10 regional qualifiers will be posted Tuesday evening. Please email any changes, scratches or omissions to Patti Delaney, copy Jen Bortz and Linda Johnson. The sooner we get these, the better! Remember, if your athlete competes in the wrong age division, she is not eligible for Easterns or JO Nationals.We will post a club draw later in the week. We will NOT be posting an athlete draw. Too many changes…Announcements: In an effort to shorten the coaches’ meetings at regionals, please read through the attached announcements before you come to regionals. This has very important information that will help prepare you for both regionals and nationals.GK Sizing: We will be sizing AA places 1-10 after awards for each session. We realize that 10th place is not an alternate, however we need to be prepared in the event of scratches.JO Qualifier Meeting: Scheduled for all Level 10’s who qualify for JO Nationals, alternates, and coaches. Scheduled for Friday April 7 (PG Complex Field House) 5:30-7:30pm. Yes, later than last year, but no worries—you don’t want to be on the Capital Beltway or I-95 before 7:30pm on a Friday!!!! We will pay for entry fees to JO Nationals for all athletes who attend. If you do not attend, please be prepared to give Jen Bortz a check for $150. payable to “Region 7” after your competition session. Additional info attached.
Publicity Release Form: JO Nationals will be streamed, therefore releases must be collected. Please have these signed by the parent/legal guardian and bring them to regionals. We will collect these at regional registration for ALL regional competitors. This way we are prepared in the event of scratches to nationals.
Thanks and good luck to everyone at regionals!! GO REGION 7!!!

All Star Qualification Procedure
The 2017 Region 7 PSP Camp will be held on July 14-16, 2017 at World Class Gymnastics in Newport News, VA.
Gymnasts who competed optionals in 2017 and who will qualify to a minimum of Level 8 in 2017-18 are eligible.
Athletes will be grouped first by level then club.
100 gymnasts will be accepted per level on a first come, first serve basis.
As a reminder to everyone, all petitions due to injury need to be into me by this Friday, March 17th. The ONLY exceptions to this are the gymnasts who are injured during the state meet. (Completed paperwook including the doctor’s note can be in by midnight Wednesday, March 22nd) Make sure you enter the petitioned gymnast into the Meetmaker program which will be up this Friday.
Due to the lateness of the New Jersey State meet, I am also requesting completed petitions be sent to me by this Friday. The only other petitioned gymnasts from New Jersey will be those gymnasts injured during their state meet.
So far I have no received any injury petitions from New Jersey.
Many thanks in helping to expedite this process.
Region 7 RTCC
Parents and gymnasts are reminded to check with your coach or club to get the latest meet information.
