 Registration for Level 9 Eastern Nationals is changing!
We will be using Meet Maker to register our gymnasts.  The file below is for all coaches who have Level 9 gymnasts qualified to regionals.  These coaches/clubs should set up their club profile on Meet Maker before the Level 9 regional meet.  Once this is done they will only need to check which gymnasts qualifiy to Eastern Nationals and enter a payment code (region specific).  Note : Any gymnast not participating in a training camp will need to reimburse Region 5 before they are given the payment code.
