Dates for the Region 5 Training Camps for the upcoming summer have been announced.
The Operating Code has been updated and posted online at https://usagym.org/PDFs/Women/Rules/operatingcode.pdf.
The updates include changes submitted and approved through 2014. The updates are highlighted in yellow.
The Xcel iBook has now updated to version 1.300.
All information concerning petitioning to the Regional Meet is found in the rules & policies page 46, 49-59. Below is a link to that section along with the petition form.
These revised Xcel charts for Additional “A” Value Parts are page numbered for the 2nd edition Xcel Code. If you have the 1st edition, you should be able to figure out where to insert this into your book.
Columns for Platinum and Diamond were added and a few Beam Acro elements that are now numbered in the Xcel Code (7.106) have been removed from this chart.
Judges are highly encouraged to use these charts as a reference when judging Bars, Beam or Floor in order to be aware of skills that normally do not have a value but can be used by certain Xcel divisions as “A’s”.
To view the new charts you may use the link below or visit the Region 5 website under the Xcel Program Rules.
