Training Camp Expectations
Training will begin first thing in the morning on September 23rd. All Athlete/Coaches should plan to travel to Phoenix on the 22nd (arriving prior to 9:00pm) to ensure that they are ready to train on the morning of the 23rd. We will have 3 full days of camp September 23, 24, 25. September 26th there will be opening training from 7-9am & 10am-12pm. These sessions will have limited space available so please send Kyla Knights (kknights@usagym.org) your request via email to ensure your group(s) has space in those sessions. During the open training session, it is the athletes' personal coaches who will be responsible for structuring and supervising their own athletes' workout, but clinicians may be available for feedback.

All athletes and personal coaches will attend a mandatory welcome meeting on Thursday September 22nd at 9:00 PM at the host hotel. All camp participants will have two training sessions each day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and one training session each on Monday. Camp will serve as a training and preparation opportunity for the 2022-2023 competition season, with focus on preparation for PAGU and upcoming spring assignments.

Pair groups will be divided into training groups by age group and discipline. Training groups will rotate through the clinicians based on the assigned schedule. Training time will focus on skill/technique work and artistry.

Personal Coaches are expected to attend and actively participate in every session with their athletes as well as additional sessions designated for coaches and coaches meetings. Personal coaches and/or chaperones are responsible for their athletes outside of training times as well.
