We are at the time of the year where we need to get the information to determine the number of athletes in North Carolina that will help to create the allotment numbers for the 2017 Region 8 Championship.

All Information Also Posted On The NC Competition Page

For this reason, the general allotment form that you send in will also serve as your clubs state meet entry form.  By sending in the athletes in your club that will be competing at the state championship, we will have the most accurate numbers possible to determine each states allotment numbers as well as numbers to send in to the JOPC.

Step 1 – USAG Meet Reservation System:

  • Go to www.usagym.org and make sure all of information on your athletes in accurate. Check their name, Level (including Division) and birthdate.
  • This information is used to determine your state’s allotment to Regionals and the Region 8 allotment to Nationals.
    • All level 4 – 10 athletes in your club that will be competing at 2017 NC State Championship
    • Directions on how to complete Meet Reservation System on the NC Men’s Website
  • The levels you list your athletes on the USAG Meet Reservation System will be used to determine allotment for BOTH Region 8 Championship as well as JO National Allotment.
  • You may make changes to their level up until January 31st, but on January 31st all levels must be FINAL as this is what they will be competing at State Championship and allotment numbers
  • Also, all coaches who will be attending the meet must be checked on the meet reservation system

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.)
