2013 Training Camps Update

Message from Sandy Sabo, 2013-14 Region 5 Training Camps Director…

The host sites and information for Region 5 Camps are posted on the Region 5 web site. Please read carefully for there are several changes to the camp criteria. These changes were proposed and passed by the Region 5 Committee back in July of 2012 for implementing in the 2013 camp season to better specify the criteria for entering a camp and to increase the level and quality of our Region 5 Camps.

Now is the time to choose and plan your camps. Registration, Camp Coach Volunteer, and Judge Volunteer forms will be posted soon. Please check the Region 5 web site often for updates.

You will notice some very exciting changes also. We will be offering a TOPs group at Hot Shot Camp which will provide training for National TOPs Qualifiers as well as information for those who are interested in starting a TOPs program. This will be a great opportunity for any coaches wanting to learn more about the TOPs Program and methods of training it.

The other most exciting thing is the addition of an NCAA Showcase in conjunction with HI Tech Camp. After HI Tech Camp is full, there is now an opportunity to enter your athlete in the Showcase so that she may be seen by the college coaches that attend HI Tech. You can read more details about this on the Region 5 web site.

If you have any questions, there is a way to ask me or Kittia Carpenter questions from the Region 5 web site.
