Thank you John, Welcome Kitta

Message from Bobbi Montanari, Regional Chair…

June 30, 2013

On behalf of the Region 5 Administrative Committee and Professional Membership, I would like to thank John Geddert for his amazing job as our Junior Olympic Chair for the past 25 years.  Under John’s leadership, our region has experienced tremendous success and is definitely recognized as being the best in the country.

As we know, John is a very talented and passionate coach.  He is also an incredible administrator as he led the development of training camps, All Star trips, our teams at Nationals, and made our banquet a celebration.  His motivational speeches were very inspirational to all.

John will be greatly missed but always well respected and appreciated.  Thank you John.

Please welcome Kittia Carpenter to the Region 5 Administrative Committee as the new Junior Olympic Chair.  Kittia comes to us with a great deal of experience as a coach, judge, and administrator.  She is very well respected by her peers and known throughout the country for her continual success.

Kittia has already been hard at work organizing training camps and preparing for the All Star Trip.  She has several goals and is excited to continue the success of our region.  Please continue to view the Region 5 website ( for updates as Kittia leads the next direction.

Go Region 5!
