Note about the meet
I’m glad everyone had a fun time at Maryland! It is worth mentioning that this is larger, more structured meet. You are expected to stay with the team throughout warm-up and competition; you need to stay with your rotation and sit/stand with the group if you are not warming up or competing. You cannot fool around on any of the equipment. Represent PCG well.
Also, please stay off the equipment while we are setting up and breaking down. This is a real gym, so they will have a ton of stuff that we don’t have. This does not mean that it is okay to jump on trampolines, swing on ropes, etc. We are there to help out!
See you at practice tomorrow and Wednesday, where we will be doing FULL ROUTINES.
