2014 Region 8 Congress
Another Letter about All Star Trip
We wanted to let you know what a fabulous time Meredith had on the All-Star trip to Puerto Rico. She hasn't stop telling us about all the great times. We were so happy that Meredith got to travel with and meet other gymnasts from Region 8. She has spoken so highly of all the girls and of how nice everyone was. The girls took lots of photos of all the fun! This is a trip she will always remember. Thank you so much for taking her.

Athletes needed for Research Project
My name is Amanda Ramon, and I am a senior Exercise Science major with a minor in Child Growth and Development at The Florida State University. Before coming to Florida State University, I was a competitive gymnast for eleven years at the Gymnastics Academy of Atlanta in Kennesaw, Georgia. As part of my undergraduate degree at FSU, I have decided to take my experiences from gymnastics and turn them into an Honors in the Major research thesis.
Letter about Region 8 All Star Trip
I just wanted to thank you so much for always organizing such a fun and rewarding trip for the girls. We are very thankful that Sydney has been able to be a part of them. She had a wonderful time getting to know the other girls and experiencing life in Puerto Rico. This trip has become such a huge incentive for all of the Region 8 girls! I know they all want to win at Nationals but going on this trip is a goal I think they each share.
We really appreciate you taking the time to always organize these trips. I know that is not an easy task. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and look forward to seeing you at some meets next year. Region 8 Rocks!!!!

It has been brought to our attention that there are coaches in our Region that are misconstruing a rule. When you are at a competition where a rotation sheet has been provided you are to follow that rotation sheet IN ORDER. Coaches are not permitted to intentionally change that order.
The rule that states that there is no deduction for competing out of order, is there to protect the athlete in the case of an innocent mistake by their coach, NOT a license to place kids in the order of your choosing.
