Club Allotment Form for Region 8 Championship

Once again it is that time of year that we need to get your gyms number of athletes at each level. This information will be used to determine the number of athletes your respective state has at the 2014 Region 8 Championship. Your respective state allotment numbers are determined prior to state championships based on the numbers from the sheets returned to the state chairman NOT the number of athletes at state championship. In addition, the number of Level 8 – 10 athletes will help to determine Region 8 allotment for the 2014 JO National Championship. The form must be emailed back to your respective state chairman no later than January 24.

A state allotted number of athletes is based on the total number of athletes turned in on these forms NOT the number of athletes registered for state championship.  A gym that does not turn in this form to their state chairman by the required date, will void their athletes opportunity to attend the 2013 Region 8 Championship.  Entry into state championship does not automatically guarantee them a spot within the state allotted number.  All Level 5 – 10 athletes must be listed on the form.  If an athlete is not on the form, then they are not eligible to attend 2014 Region 8 Championship. Again, if your club does not return the form or does not fill it out accurately, it will cost your athletes their spot at the 2014 Region 8 Championship.

Return the following form to your respective state chairman no later than Friday, January 24
