Grand March at Nationals

The Grand March at Nationals and Regional All Star competition will be held in the San Jose Convention Center Saturday June 27. This will be the only time that our whole team will be together for an event at Nationals. It’s a fun night and will be a highlight of your trip.

Athletes need to report to Hall 1 promptly at 515 for The Grand March. They need to be dressed in warm up pants, jacket, white socks, sneakers and competition hair. Only athletes participating in the Grand March will receive the Grand March souvenir.

The March will begin at 6 pm, but spectators should get in early to get tickets and seats. Tickets are $6. If you’ve already purchased a ticket for Session 6 that day, you do not need to purchase an additional ticket.

The Regional All-Star competition will take place immediately after the Grand March. Ivanna Antezanna will be representing our region (Region 6) in trampoline.

Detailed Schedule for J.O. National Championships

Congratulations to all Fairland athletes who made it to J.O. National Championships. As all of you know, Nationals will be held in San Jose, California. If you read through this post, you will be able to find a detailed schedule for each athlete. The Number 1 or 2 in each column refers to the number assigned to the equipment, ie. Trampoline #1 or Trampoline #2. At Nationals there will be two sets of Trampolines, two Double-Mini Trampolines, and two Tumbling strips. You need to arrive at the competition arena 30 minutes before your training time and 45 minutes before your flight. If you are in the first flight you need to be there 20 minutes before the session start time. (First flight time is 15 minutes after session start time).

I will be in San Jose starting Tuesday June 23 and will be staying at the Sainte Claire Hotel, 302 South Market Street. When you arrive in San Jose, call me at 301.379.7397 to arrange pick-up of your child’s athlete pass. These are required for access to the competition areas. The athlete pass also allows your child to enter the convention center daily without paying an admission fee.
