Calling All Region 5 Training Camp Judge Volunteers

Now is the time to sign up to volunteer for our Region 5 Training Camps for 2015.

Just go to the Region 5 Training Camp Web Page and go to the Training Camps Judging Volunteer Form at the top of the home page or us this link (Judge Volunteer Form) to complete.

It is important to complete this form for ALL camps by the August 1, 2015 to be assigned in a leadership role. No one will be assigned after this deadline.

Judges can sign up for one to three days. If you can only do one day, Sunday is not recommended as it is only a partial day. On Sunday’s, there are often other activities planned like challenges or demonstrations of accomplished skills which means judges are needed less.

Kudos to an amazing 2015 at so many levels. Congratulations to all the participating coaches, athletes and judges for a job so well done. Your programs should flourish as you follow the success of gymnastics performances all over the country and know that Region 5 is an integral part of the beauty and strength of our sport!!! It’s time to begin thinking about summer training and preparation for the upcoming season!!!!

I would like to introduce myself, Lori Koch, the owner and head coach of Olympia Gymnastics Academy in Shelby Twp. , Michigan. I have accepted the position of Co Camp Administrator for 2015 and will be working side by side with Sandy Sabo of Youngstown, Ohio. Working with the Regional board, this team will organize and staff the numerous training camps held from August to November.

With new eyes and leadership and fresh approach, Region 5 will be looking at:

GOALS

SUGGESTED METHODS TO ACHIEVE FURTHER EXCELLENCE

* Physical Preparation
* Attending MORE than ONE camp and attempting to travel to another state for a training weekend.
* Possibly adding Sports Psychology and Yoga
* Utilizing the Judging Community with Video analysis and more input on site.
* Add coach’s roundtables to the conclusion of camp.

Excellence begins as you enter the gym! Respect will build. Appreciation will be expressed!!
