Message from USAG NJ SACC

Dear NJ Professional Members,  
The incredible work you have done over the years should not be shadowed by the torment of one person.  Starting today we have to stand strong and believe in each other and help to make our organization stronger. At this time, I am beginning a series of emails to you with information that was shared with us.  I believe in you and the work you have done with our athletes.  Help me in showing that New Jersey is strong and united.  Over 30 years ago gymnastics directed me into a lifestyle and a career of helping, working with and guiding children.  I know how much I care for all of our athletes and you do as well.  Lets stand tall and preach empowerment of our athletes and the work that we have all done to better the lives of children.  I know with your support, we can come back as a stronger organization. I have also included in this email, the statement that all states are standing behind.

These words were written by the state and regional chairs of the womens’ program.
USA Gymnastics holds the highest standard of care for athletes and members.We have the desire to rebuild and to move forward. We have the opportunity right now, in the history of USA Gymnastics, in our sport, and in our country, to lead, saying, we are going to get it right.  By doing that, we will honor our athletes who have been impacted and we will honor all USA Gymnastics members and participants, including, but not limited to, athletes, coaches, parents, judges, and volunteers. We will not be the organization that shuts the doors, changes the name, and puts a new face on the same institution. At the end of the day, we have an opportunity to improve USA Gymnastics.  We have an obligation to meet the challenge that has been set before us and to become a better organization.  It is about sharing positive gymnastics stories and getting it right.
We will get it right.
Eighty-Eight Women’s Program USA Gymnastics National, Regional, and State leaders stood today to wholeheartedly support USA Gymnastics.

Mr. Brant Lutska
New Jersey State Administrative Committee Chairman

3/4 States Parking jNotice

Note from Precision Gym – 3/4 States Meet Host:

I have just been informed that Sportika has booked multiple events this weekend, 17/18 February 2018.  This was not the case when the venue was contracted.
We are expecting to meet the parking capacity of 450 cars. There will be a complimentary bus shuttle to Sportika from a school on Woodward Rd. and parking personnel will direct cars to the over-flow lot.
There is a drop off area in front of the Sportika building if passengers would like to be dropped off while the driver goes to the over-flow lot.
Please pass along this information so that your coaches and parents will expect possible parking delays.
Please accept my apologies in advance for any inconvenience. We are diligently planning to make this a great meet experience.

Good luck to all!
