Forward Progress Camp Update

Wow ! Region 5 IS simply the Best!

We have had overwhelming response to Regional Camps this year.  All 3 sites, MI, IN, and IL are already full and we are still nearly 3 weeks from the deadline to enter (Oct 3, 2014).  Therefore, we are accepting an offer from Aspire Gymnastics located in West Chicago to host a 4th site.  Registration is now open for this site.  This will be your last opportunity to participate in a Regional Camp for 2014.  Space in this site will be limited and time is running out so go to the training camps web site (http://trainingcamps.region5.com) now to do your online registration.

If you plan to coach at camp, your coach volunteer form can be done at the same time.  If you would like to coach a camp but are not entering athletes there is a coach volunteer form on the web site you can use just for this.

Benefits for the Coach…..

Remember that as a coach to be eligible for National apparel, when you work all 3 days at a Regional Camp you get free National apparel should your club qualify anyone to level 9 or 10 Nationals….AND coaches of national qualifiers that coach additional camps (full 3 days) will be entered in a drawing for an iPad for each additional camp worked!!

Benefits for the Athlete…..
When your club has athletes participate in a camp this qualifies the national qualifiers to get their apparel for free.  If your club does not participate it will cost your club $300.00 for 1 qualifier and $600.00 for 2 or more qualifiers.  Also if you have a Level 10 that may qualify to All Star Team she “must” participate in a camp to eligible.
Besides, you don’t want to be left out on all the fun you and your athletes will have learning and sharing ideas at a Regional Camp.

TeamWork makes the DreamWork!!  Go Region 5 !
