2012 AllStar Team Update

2012 AllStar Team Update

The Region 5 Allstar Team Information has been slightly updated.  The changes affect the Alterntes list.  We have also added a clearer explanation of who the official Allstar Team is and who is eligible to travel on the International Trip as a guest of Region 5.

***************************************************

2012 REGION 5 ALL STAR TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT

The 2012 Region 5 All Star Team are the following PLUS our Elite National Team Members that are ineligible to travel due to USA National Team constraints and assumed obligations.

These athletes will be honored at our Region 5 congress in September. The top 8 Junior Olympic athletes are ranked along with the top 2 Junior and top 2 senior elite athletes (provided they have met all the criterion established by the region)

If elite spots are not filled we use the rank order from the J.O. list to fill the spots. The alternate list will be used to fill in vacated spots OR as an invitation list should we decide to offer additional travel positions (at their own cost) for the proposed international experience (Panama).

These coaches and athletes are to be commended for their long standing contributions to our sport and their accomplishments in the competitive arena this past season. Congratulations
