2016 Region VIII Championship

The 2015 Region VIII Championship will take place April 8-10, 2016 in Jekyll Island, GA. Once again it is that time of year that we need to get your gyms number of athletes at each level.  The 2016 NC State Championship Entry Form will serve as BOTH YOUR GYM ALLOTMENT INFORMATION AS WELL AS YOUR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP ENTRY FORM.  All level 4 – 10 athletes in your club that will be competing at the state championship need to be listed on this form. This information will be used to determine the number of athletes your respective state has at the 2016 Region 8 Championship.  The 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 2016 JO National Championship as per the JOPC mandate.

A gym that does not turn in this form to their state chairman by Monday, February 1, will void their athletes opportunity to attend the 2016 Region 8 Championship not their athletes opportunity to attend State Championship.   (Late entries will void an athletes opportunity to attend the 2016 Region 8 Championship.)
