 Notes From Deb...

Did You Know You Have a Gold Gymnastics Key?

Some of you may not realize it, but Meet Control gives you a Golden Key before each one of our meets that entitles you to a fast track access. That Key is called a Team Roster and it can be downloaded from our website. The information contained on this fast track access was designed to make your life easier, and to give you time, yes time at the meet to do your job rather than be burdened with administrative duties. When you download your roster, you will find a myriad of information. That information has to be correct before any athlete competes in a meet. Rather than wait to be called to the head table to correct a USAG number, a birthday, or (and this one is ultimately important to a parent, especially on the souvenir certificates) correct the spelling of a name, you can do it BEFORE meet day. Now here's the kicker: you can find out what session you are in, your athlete's age group, and even what squad you are in. It's all there-a golden key.

When you download your roster, check it then! Email any changes and corrections immediately. Make enough copies for all coaches attending so they each will have a golden key.

We are trying very hard to make your life easier at meets by providing you with everything you need ahead of time. Please take advantage of the team roster and fast track your team so your meet experience will be about competition, not administrative duties. Use the Golden Key and skip the headache of having your game plan interrupted. See you on the tour! Deb

Yes, its time to make sure you are on our 2012-2013 tour! Please feel free to contact us for more information.
