Regional Championship Updates

LEVEL 7 AND 8 REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

  1. The location has changed to:
    Indiana Convention Center - Hall D
    100 S. Capitol Ave.
    Indianapolis, IN 46225
  2. State Team members for each Age Group will be kept with their clubs this year.  This will reduce the number of coaches out on the competition floor.

XCEL SILVER AND LEVEL 6 REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

  1. State Team Members and All-Stars will be placed in the same sessions by age groups.  Overall State Team will be announced after completing each division and/or level.  State Team Members and All-Stars will compete for Event and All-Around.

XCEL GOLD, PLATINUM, AND DIAMOND REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

  1. Athletes between the ages of 13 - 18 will need to be Covid-19 tested within 7 days of the event.  Proof of negative test will be required before entering the venue—additional information from Cindy Scharns, meet director, below.

LEVEL 6-7-8-XCEL STATE TEAM FORMAT CHANGE FOR 2021 REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

The administrative committee discussed the state team's format for Levels 6, 7, 8, and all Xcel Divisions. Due to the protocols for Covid-19, the committee voted to keep clubs intact for all levels and divisions. What this means is for Levels 6, 7, and 8 there will not be separate squads for state teams. Clubs having state team members and all-stars in the same age group session will stay together. The Xcel State Team members, for this year only, will be placed in their appropriate age group session. The state team results will be announced at the end of each division's last session.
