Reminder....for the "present Level 8, 9, or 10 gymnast who competed at the same level the previous year and competed in the previous year's Regional Championship (and achieved a score equal to or greater than the current year's respective State Meet qualifying score) may directly enter the current year's State meet at her respective level." For these gymnasts, to aid in our verification process, please email the names and levels of these gymnasts with "directly qualified to states" in the subject of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Please let your parents know that final competition schedules for all State meets will be made available as soon as they are ready. Please educate them about the entry deadline being very close to states to allow the greatest number of opportunities to qualify. Our families are getting used to the entry deadlines of invitaionals which also allows for WAY earlier knowledge of competition schedules. I will be sure to make sure that the coaches have the final schedule at least 24 hours before releasing to the website / fb for parents.
