Region 5 Summer Camp Athletes

Please remember when checking for your athletes on the list of participants for camp this past summer that we register based on the level the athlete competed the season prior to the camp.  Your athlete may not be listed on the page with her current level so be sure to check all three levels listed. If you see an omission, please contact Debra Warhol as soon as possible so that you will not experience any difficulties at the Regional Meet.

Thanks and Good Luck at Regionals!
