Make Sure Information is Updated
You should have received a Constant Contact email on October 23rd. If you did then your email address is updated with USA Gymnastics. Email addresses are pulled from National Membership database for National, Regional and State emails. If you have coaches in your gym or other friends who did not get this email then their email may not be updated. To issue you receive most recent information make sure all of your information is updated. Go to usagym.org, sign in, then Member Services, then My Profile and update your information.
While looking at mailing list I noticed that many of you have Expired or Pending by your membership due to expired or unfinished background check. Background checks expire after 2 years on 7/31. Safety is good for 4 years and expires on also 7/31. USA Gymnastics memberships are for 1 year, but Safety and Background checks must be active for USA Gymnastics Membership to be active.
TRLF - Tim Rand Legends Fund
Please consider making a donation to the TRLF. Region 8 has paid for all Level 9 & 10 entry fees to their National Championships for the last several years. Entry fees and Level 10 number increase this year, so we need your help to continue paying National entry fees. Please consider donating a percentage of the profits from your invitational. Have a Cartwheel-A-Thon. Come up with something new, but please help us out!
USA Gymnastics has printed a 3rd Edition of the Xcel Code. The Xcel iCode and JO iCode have also been updated.
Also there were several pages that should have been posted with this summer's Errata that were not included. These have been posted on the USA Gymnastics website. Double check that you have everything! These are the additional pages:
Xcel Code of Points Revised Pages (77/79 & 129/132) (posted 9/17/15)
Xcel Code of Points errata (posted 9/15/15)
Xcel Code of Points Revised Page (posted 9/10/15)
Level 8 Vault Clarification
The motion reads:
Recommendation that for Level 8 Vault only: If the coach spots the gymnast during the post flight, a 1.00 deduction is applied rather than voiding the vault. The current 0.50 deduction for spotting assistance upon the landing is still in effect.
Motion: Larry Goldsmith
Second: Linda Mulvihill
I believe the intent is a 1.0 deduction for spotting the post flight and 0.5 deduction for spotting the landing for a total of 1.5. Hopefully this email will clear up any confusion.
