The JOPC met in Indianapolis September 9 and 10.  Based on decisions and clarifications made at this meeting, the Men’s Rules & Policies have been updated on our website.  Please review this as we head into the competitive season, especially as it pertains to the new age groups and post-high school athlete participation.


We have a new website dedicated to the Men’s Collegiate Championships and the schools that participate.  The website is:  The portal to this page can be found at the bottom of the Men’s Program website.

Although the Collegiate Championships is a dormant event, the intent on creating it was to:

  1. Highlight the colleges and clubs that participate
  2. Provide news as it becomes available
  3. Provide photos of the Championship event
  4. Announce the upcoming date and location of the event
  5. Provide additional information to parents who are researching collegiate possibilities for their son.  Please ask your coaches to share this with their athletes and parents.



The online process for the Academic All-American Recognition Award application submission was a great success last year.  This will continue for the 2016-17 season.  The online submission will be available beginning in December and the new due date is February 15. 


The online process for submitting the electronic version of the NCAA form was also a success last year.  This will continue for the 2016-17 season.  The online submission will be available beginning in January. 

Best regards,

2016 Future Stars

August 10th, 2016 by olssonf No comments »

All Coaches,

 Please “Save the Dates” for the Regional Future Stars Evaluation, Camp, and National Championships.  Please also be aware that the age determination date for Future Stars will be the same as the rest of the USAG Men’s Program.  That means it is a looking forward to how old they will be on May 31.  More details about the schedule and how to register will be available in the next couple of weeks.


The region has decided to no longer offer the modified 8 and 9 year old routines.  With the update of the National Future Stars Program we feel as though the 8 and 9 year old routines are now more appropriate. You will find the updated regional routines and the regional grid attached.
