2018 Regionals Updates

April 3rd, 2018

First off the official Championships site is:
http://region1.sundevilgymnastics.com/

Dear Region 1 Participants:

DRIVING DELAYS!

On Saturday and Sunday, in the area of our competition venue, there will also be both a big concert and an “Inflatable Run”. SO..  there will be some road closures and variations in inbound traffic. Attached here is a map showing routes to get to the gymnastics meet.  Please forward this very important info out to all you know are coming so they are aware there will be some traffic delays and detours.  This will be for both Saturday & Sunday.  Be sure to plan to arrive early due to potential traffic delays. 

Essentially you can get to Rawhide from I-10 off Wild Horse Pass Blvd, Pecos or the 347 and follow any of those three RED lines marked for INBOUND traffic.  You will circle around a little but just follow the GYMNASTICS signs.

PARKING costs $5 ONLY IF YOU MENTION the “GYMNASTICS DISCOUNT” when paying.

Normal price is $10 per car.  You will pay for parking  where the star on the map is marked at the intersection of 48th Street & Wild Horse Pass Road and then proceed to park just South and next to the Gymnastics Event Center.  A map will also be posted on the website.

Open Letter…

January 23rd, 2018
To all of our amazing professionals:
This is a letter from Jay Barrows to the coaches of Maryland. He has eloquently stated how I, and most others, feel in this time….
Quote
—–
Our sport is going through a rough time right now.  The actions, or inactions, of a few at the top have given the entire organization a black eye, and in some cases have disgusted us and shaken us to our core. Do not let this discourage you from what you do. There are tens of thousands of professionals in our organization who are good people, and are doing this for the right reasons. We do not coach, or judge, for money or medals. We do it to help kids. We do it for the smile on a child’s face when they get a new trick, whether it is a Level 10 standing up a double back, a Level 4 making a kip, or an XCel making a cartwheel on beam. We do it to make each day that they are with us a better day than if they weren’t. We do it to make them stronger, healthier, and more confident in themselves. We do this to help them become better people. And we do it for our love of the sport. I feel privileged to have gotten to known you all, as fantastic ambassadors for doing our sport the right way, and commend you for your work for the athletes.
~ Jay Barrows
Thank you Jay for the words and Thank you Coaches, Judges, parents and athletes -past and present- for your dedication, love and support of this amazing sport.
