Competition Order

Posted: 02.26.2013

TO: Region 8 Membership
FROM: Deb Kornegay (RACC), Marian Dykes (RTCC) and Brad Harris (RJOCC)

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.

Posted: 02.16.2012

 

REGION 8 USA GYMNASTICS LEVEL 7 & 8 CHAMPIONSHIPS charity is The Pat Summitt Foundation

 
 
Region 8 is proud to announce the selection of The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund, a fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, as the designated charity for the Level 7 & 8 Championships April 20-22, 2012 in Kissimmee, FL at the Heritage Park’s Exhibition Hall. The home base of the Fund—Nashville, Tennessee— is located inside Region 8.
 The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund believes no family should have to hear a diagnosis like Pat’s early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. The Fund will make grants to nonprofits which provide:
·      education and awareness of Alzheimer's, its onset and treatment
·      support services to patients, their families and caregivers
·      research to treat, prevent, cure, and ultimately eradicate this disease
 
Talking with Danielle Donehew, leadership volunteer with The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund, “Pat Summitt is a true champion on and off the basketball court.  As she faces her toughest opponent, we are extremely thankful for the commitment of the USA Gymnastics Region 8 leadership for Joining Pat’s Team.  Please accept our sincere thanks for your efforts in supporting The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund through your Level 7 & 8 Championships.  Thank you for promoting awareness of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease coupled with financial support to invest on the front lines of research, treatment, and caregiving initiatives.  Best wishes for your event! “ 
 
Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible. More information can be found at www.PatSummitt.org
