These are items that will be up for continued discussion at our May JOC meeting. I really appreciate feedback from our regional community so that I can best represent you on these items. There are only 2 questions on the survey, and room for comments for suggestions.

The event draw will be published later this week.  I will also be publishing very important regional and national announcements later in the week.  It is our hope, that by getting this information to you in advance, it will help you prepare your athletes, and we can shorten the coaches’ meetings at regionals.  Stay tuned!!

9 & 10 Regional Rosters

To Level 9 and 10 Clubs:
Attached are Level 9 and 10 Regional Qualifier Rosters with age groups.  This includes the latest petitions.  I have also attached the age group divisions by birthdate that was sent from the national office.  Please verify that all of your athletes are listed, and are in the correct age groups. If you have any changes, please notify Debbie LeMoal (World Class) and Linda Johnson (RJOCC) by Friday midnight.
Debbie LeMoal:
Linda Johnson:
Please remember that any athlete who competes in the wrong age group at regionals is ineligible for qualification to nationals.  We are taking this extra step to avoid this!  And we will need accurate numbers to finalize the regional meet schedule.
We anticipate finalizing and posting the regional meet schedule on Saturday.
Thank you for your help, support and patience!  And props to our clubs for our highest numbers of qualifiers to date!!
