Region 5 hosted its first Hi-Tech Coaches Seminar at Branch Gymnastics in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This event drew Level 8-10 coaches from throughout Region 5 to learn from some of the top coaches in the country. All clinicians, who are USA Gymnastics National Staff, have coached Elite Level Athletes. The clinicians brought some great education, drills and skill work to us here in Region 5. Hopefully, next year more coaches will be able to attend this educational opportunity.
