The 2016 Region 1 Athlete Clinic took place the weekend of October 15-16. Hosted by West Coast Training Center in Livermore, CA, half a dozen clubs attended with a total of near 150 athletes!! Athletes had a chance to work with top level clinicians! Training focused on acrobatic partner skills, tumbling, dance and performance! It was an awesome time of athlete bonding as well with a chance for teammates to spend an entire day together working out in the gym. The clinic also allows an opportunity to meet new friends from other clubs in the Region! We were extremely proud of how everyone did at the clinic and are enjoying the motivation that comes from these group events.
Training and development continues this month with Team ATA! Many of our pairs and trios are starting to master their competition skills and are in the beginning of learning choreography! Pairs and Groups schedule special sessions to learn their competitive routines. It's an exciting time for athletes to put some of that dance training to work as their routine creations come to life.
