RTCC Note re 9/10 Regional Petitions

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.

Level 8 Regional Meet Updates

Region 7

Level 8 Regional Meet updates:

1.  Due to unexpected volume, the host hotels are booking fast.  Families may need to reach out to other venues in the Pittsburgh/Beaver/Airport/Cranberry area.

2.  Some states are not hosting the L8 State meet until the weekend of 3/17.  For this reason, schedules will be delayed.  We hope to post immediately following all L8 State meets on 3/20/17.  (Parents/Athletes need to contact your club or coach for meet information.)

3.  Attached please find a form for Shout Out Banners.  In an effort to be green, this is being done IN PLACE OF the traditional programs.  Scoring sheets will still be offered.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
