Our All Star team has traditionally been provided with an international experience which usually takes the form of a Good Will Ambassadorship, where our coaches and athletes assist developing nations with their gymnastics. The details for this year’s experience are still in the works and should be released shortly (the new J.O. chair is responsible for this project and working word to arrange a phenomenal experience).

Congratulations to our athletes, clubs, coaches and parents for this prestigious achievement. I know I speak for the entire RAC (Regional Administrative Committee) when I say how very proud we are of all of you.
