State Meet Competition Info

Friday- Team Competition (Bradley Team Competing-1st time ever!)
2:15- Coaches Meeting
3:00 Parade of Competitors/March In
3:10-1st group Warm up Begins
3:30-Competition begins for 1st group
**From what I can tell so far- it looks as if Bradley will be in the 2nd group. So- if this is the case- they would be warming up at 3:30 and then competing between 3:50-4:00. 
Saturday- Individual Competition (Davidson- Nikia (Bars), Darby- Chloe (Floor), Bradley-Greta (Bars, Beam, Floor, AA – which means she will compete on all 4 Events to get All-Around Score)
10:00- Registration
11:00- Coaches Meeting
11:30- Parade of Competitors/March In
11:40- First group Warms Up
12:00- 1st Group begins Competition

**From what I can tell- Looks like we will be in the 2nd Group- starting on Balance Beam.
This would mean that Greta would be the first to start competing and that would be around 12:20.
Nikia– if this rotation is correct- Bars would our LAST event- Which would be sometime after 2:15 I would guess.
Chloe– She would probably be competing on Floor around 1:00 or so.
These are probably the best estimates that I will be able to give- hope this is helpful!

State Meet Worker Info

We will have a more complete role in the management of the State Meet this week.  This increased role will also allow us to raise more money for our Teams!



  • Set up for State Meet on Thursday 3/1- 7:30-10:00ish
    • This involves unloading the equipment truck (equipment is rented) and set up of the equipment
    • All Gymnasts will assist with this
    • We welcome any Parent helpers for Set Up
    • We will be specifically looking for some dads, brothers, friends, etc to help get the equipment out of the truck for the gymnasts to set up
  • Workers during the Meet On Friday & Saturday- 
    • Selling Programs (1-2 gymnasts will be able to do this each day)
    • Manning the Media Table in Fieldhouse (Media people will pick up their credentials from this table- and you will also make sure people are not coming/going in the fieldhouse besides competitors and coaches)
      • This can be more than ones person, and can be divided into shifts if needed.  This will start around the time of March in each day.
    • Extra People to Set Bars/move mats as needed
      • This will be done by the Gymnasts
  • Tear Down of the Equipment on Saturday 3/3
    • This will involve breaking down the equipment and loading it back on the truck.
      • The Back gym will be able to be torn down while the end of the meet is happening.
      • Competition is usually done by about 3:30 or so- so tear down of main gym would begin after competition and awards were done.

        • We welcome any Parent helpers for Tear Down
        • We will be specifically looking for some dads, brothers, friends, etc to help get the equipment back on the truck once the gymnasts take it back there.

OCC Championships- Hospitality Room

As we are hosting the OCC Championship meet next Saturday- we are responsible for providing the other coaches and judges with a hospitality room/area. 
Please see the link below for the sign up.  
 If anyone wants to call around or knows a connection- in the past we have been able to get some businesses to donate something like a tray of half sandwiches or wraps.  If we do get that, we could substitute something like that for either the shredded chicken or meatballs.  
Thank you!
