We have now opened up the webpage for ADVANCED ordering of apparel for the Region 1 Championships.  This is the best way to guarantee you get the design you want in the size you want.  We cannot guarantee quantities onsite especially the last couple of days.  Note: Sunday competitors; we highly recommend you pre-order apparel!  All online (advanced) ordering is by credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or Paypal only.

We are again offering another design from the “Hidden Gymnast” line from Melany Klempnauer!  This year it is an Eagle (see below).  Can you count how many hidden gymnasts there are? 

The DEADLINE for Advanced Apparel Ordering is March 21st.  After this date there will only be onsite purchases.

2017 Nor-Cal State Qualifying Scores

January 20th, 2017 by olssonf No comments »
Hello Coaches!
As season is moving along at full steam here is a list of reminders so we can all be prepared for our Championship meets.
1) Finalized Qualifying scores for State Championships:
      Level 5 Division 1 = 51.00
      Level 5 Division 2 = 40.00
      Level 6 Division 1 = 50.00
      Level 6 Division 2 = 40.00
(All Level 4, 7, 8, 9, 10 and JD athletes automatically qualify to States)
2) PLEASE be sure to update your athletes levels (and DIVISIONS) in the USA Gymnastics database.  These numbers are what our Regional and National allotment will be based on.
3) Club and Athlete membership payments are now past due.  Please refer to the current by-laws to understand the benefits of membership.
4) All clubs will need to register for States, Regionals and Nationals using the USA Gymnastics Reservation System.  I will not have more details on how this is going to be implemented until next week.
5) This is an election year for all NCBGA positions.  If you are interested or might be interested in any position please contact Tony Zueli ASAP to get on the ballot or ask questions about the requirements. Elections will take place at the General Membership Meeting scheduled to take place immediately following the Level 5 State Competition at Head Over Heels.
I wish everyone the best of luck and much success this season! As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
Much Aloha!

Michelle Huffman, NCBGA Chairman/Ohana Gymnastics
