Examples for Bronze Floor: Fulfills SR #1 & #2 – 1st example, change “flic-flac” to “rebound, backward roll”. 1st Pass – Round-off, rebound, backward roll

Original example does not fulfill SR #2 because the round-off is the third flight element resulting in 0.50 unallowable element deduction + NO VP + NO SR.

 

   
   
   
   
 

2013-2014 Member Updates

 

Membership and Educational Renewal Reminder:

Professional and Instructor membership expiration dates now align with the athletic competitive season.   Therefore, most professional memberships expired on 7.31.13. Any new or renewing safety and background check certification will have the 7.31 expiration date.

U100/Instructor Certification does not expire nor need be renewed.

Members can renew safety certification 1 year prior to expiration date

Members can renew background check certification 6 months prior to expiration date. 

 

Posting Schedule:

As a reference, below is the schedule to which online payments and certifications will appear on an individuals membership record.

Background Check Certifications

Online Level Changes

Club administrators now have the ability to update levels online via their athlete roster without contacting Member Services.  In addition, Women, Men and T&T  has had some slight changes to their level structures.

  • Women's: Xcel divisions-Bronze, Sliver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond
  • Men's: Now include levels 1-3,
  • T&T: Due to the complexity of the T&T levels, you will notice that we no longer indicate an actual trampoline level. Therefore, when T&T level will only be listed as T&T discipline

Member Club

USA Gymnastics will no longer be offering the Registered Business membership. Moving forward we will only be offering the Member Club membership. In addition, we are aligning all Member Club expiration dates with the 7.31 model. 

 

Membership Verification Function

USA Gymnastics has a new tool that will assist both meet directors and club administrators in the process of meet registration. The new membership verification functionality will provide club administrators a  tool to assign coaches and athletes to sanctioned competitions. While, providing meet directors  a sense of ease that those assigned to their meets have had their memberships verified through USA Gymnastics.

USA Gymnastics has created the Clubs Care Campaign The Clubs Care Campaign was created to help individuals be more aware of the issue of child sexual abuse, and then suggest ways one can turn that awareness into action.  Just recently, USA Gymnastics did a mailing to the clubs providing them with materials to assist in awareness of the societal issue.  Awareness+Action=Prevention

The Clubs Care Campaign can help clubs:

  • Develop or revise policies
  • Establish standards of behavior for your staff and volunteers
  • Examine your hiring and training practices
  • Encourage parental monitoring
  • Set up procedures for reporting and handling misconduct complaints

We encourage you to post the campaign logo and link on your website and encourage clubs to increase the safety of all children. The Parent Oriented site is found at USAGymClub.com

 

If any clubs would like to host or promote a live course for 2013 please sign up with USA Gymnastics with what dates and locations are best for you. Recommended May-October.

 The live courses we are looking at adding to the  2013  schedule include:

R102 Preschool Fundamentals: Hands on Training (4 hour live course/ Member Club pricing available)

this is an important message from Tom for anyone running meets this season.

To all meet directors and gyms sending meet entries.  Please be sure to update to Proscore 4.021.  Please check that all short names are exactly as they appear on the attached list.  Those of you who have entered coaches names, please check that those names are still valid and spelled correctly as they appear on our CT website - and gyms double check that the website is up to date as well.  All of the incorrect coaches names have added 5 minutes to every download.  Please let me know about any errors or omissions .  Make sure all meet names start with the date as this is how they are categorized in the system.  Do not capitalize gymnasts names when entering or they will appear as different gymnasts when checking qualification. Happy meet season  Tom     Proscore instructions for CT meets for Tom at New Era

Periodically USA Gymnastics releases broadcast e-mails to the Membership. Some members are not receiving these communications.  If you did not receive the recent e-mail ,with J.O. Clarifications,  - please contact Mike Bowman at mbowman@usa-gymnastics.org .

   

 

   
   
  USA Gymnastics has created a specific ruling about what information can be listed about any child in online postings. Only the athlete's name and club may be shown. These are normally posted on Regional/State or Club websites. Parents are to be made aware that postings as noted above will be allowed and they must notify the meet director via their club coach, if they do not wish to allow their child's name listed at all.  The web pages made by our ProScore program conform to this requirement so it is nothing new to be concerned about.
