The Shasta Mini-Meet is a GBC sanctioned event usually held in early December at Shasta's training facility in Queen's Park. The meet is coordinated by the Board and run by Shasta's National athletes. This is their day to give back to the sport, and help fund raise for the Team.
The Mini-Meet is a fun pre-competitive season "tune-up" for Provincial athletes before the competitive season starts for real in Feb 2018, with the AJM Cup (BC 1st Provincial Cup). It's also a great introduction to the competitive trampoline world for our new club members, where they (and their parents) learn what's involved with the process of competing in front of a judging panel.
Athletes do one compulsory routine on trampoline, and two passes on double-mini. Judges score each routine and pass, and awards are given at the end of the competition. The whole event takes about 4 hrs.
Unfortunately, this year, we are unable to host the Mini-Meet due to lack of a suitable venue :(
Aaron Johnson Memorial Cup (AJM)
The AJM is held on BC Family Day weekend (2018, Feb 10th to 12th) - it is usually the 1st GBC sanctioned Provincial Cup of the T&T competitive season. Due to lack of a suitable venue in New West, it will once again be held at the Cameron Rec Centre in Burnaby. The AJM is very popular, typically drawing over 200 athletes and their families from throughout BC, as well as visiting athletes from other provinces. Our meet has a great track record of being a well run, successful event. This year, we are welcoming a team of athletes from Saskatchewan!
To ensure the continuing success of our meet, we ask all Shasta families to commit to volunteering for shifts on all 3 days of the event. Volunteering shifts are split into categories, led by a Chair (e.g., marshaling; scoring; hospitality; concession; etc). More information and volunteer sign-up will be circulated in the weeks prior to the event.
As well as being an opportunity for athletes to compete at Provincial and National levels, the AJM is Shasta's primary fundraiser. To help raise funds we hold a raffle, and ask each Shasta family to donate one or more prizes. This can be a prize that you purchase yourself, or something that is donated from one (or more) of the local businesses you frequent. We have had some great prizes in the past, including cell phones, electronic games, sports clothing, restaurant vouchers, hockey tickets, etc, etc. All donors get advertising space in our electronic program on all three days of the event.
It's never too early to start collecting raffle prizes!!
