GBC Competition Updates

1) 10+U Category 
This category has been removed from the BC competitive system. For all athletes registered in the L1 categories (TR/DMT/TU), the registration will be reviewed immediately following the registration deadline for the first sanctioned BC Provincial Cup, then split by the median age to a maximum of two age groups. For example:  the girls category may be L1 11+U / L1 12+. Depending on the numbers, the boys may once again compete as one open age group. Once the new split has been established, the athletes will remain in the same groupings for the remained of the season. Reminder that the athletes age is determined as of December 31, 2018.

2) BC Provincial Cup – Registration Fees 
The Technical Committee has approved a small increase in the athlete registration fee for all BC Provincial Cups. The fee will be $90.
This move was taken to assist clubs with the added cost of meeting the new staging requirements for both DMT and TU. Judging panels for these events will now be sittin…

Another new Shasta judge!!

Congratulations to Hannah Brown, who joins Marina Khrisanova as a new Shasta judge this season!
Hannah has qualified as a double-mini judge, and Marina has qualified as a double-mini and trampoline judge.

Happy Halloween!

Reminder  -  no training for Provincial level athletes on Tuesday 31st Oct

Shasta Backpacks

I had a query about getting a Shasta backpack. Unfortunately the team backpack we have is no longer available. Due to our increased costs this season, we took the decision not to get backpacks this year. FYI, we will be getting new backpacks and bodysuits next year. As far as I know at this point, the singlets will be staying the same.

Uniform swap

Tracey will be at VCS from 5pm on Tues 26th and Wed 27th to assist with uniforms.
Sellers: Last chance to drop off any items for sale (labelled with your name)

This week is National Coaches Week

Thanks to all of our amazing Shasta coaches!!!

10+U: BC Technical Committee Decision - 2017/2018

The 10+U (10 yrs and under) category will be removed from the Gymnastics BC trampoline gymnastics competitive program as a competitive category at all Gymnastics BC sanctioned events, and is therefore no longer a part of the Gymnastics BC competitive program.
At BC Provincial Cups, registered competitors in Level 1 (L1) will be split by the median age into a maximum of two age groups.

Thanks to all of you who came out to the meeting. We reached quorum, so the vote passed and we are now in good standing with the BC Societies Act!
No new uniforms this year, but if you need anything, as a new member or because you have changed size, and/or have anything to swap, stay tuned for notice of the time and place of the "uniform swap".

2017/2018 Competitive Season

Shasta starts its 42nd season on Monday September 11th!! We are welcoming 36 returning athletes and 8 new athletes, for a grand total of 22 national and 22 provincial athletes. Our coaches this season are Val, Curt, Lisa, Christie, Tim, Poppy, and Anita. The Board met last week to discuss preparations for the Members meeting on September 16th, as well as arrangements for new uniforms and the uniform swap. We welcomed Darren Milne as our new Treasurer, and reviewed tasks that need to be completed in September, including collection of club fees. 
The GBC technical committee will be meeting on September the 17th, to ratify the 2017/2018 competition schedule, and competition levels. 
We are looking forward to the 2017/2018 competitive season, and hope you are too!
