USA Jump Rope Members,
Due to the cancelation of our Regional Tournaments to stay in accordance with the government mandates of school and gym closures, we understand that the majority of our teams will not host a Sanctioned Speed and Power tournament to qualify their athletes for Nationals in speed and power events. In an effort to take some stress away from our athletes and coaches during these unprecedented circumstances, we are now allowing all speed and power events to wildcard through to Nationals, along with all freestyle events. Our National Championships have NOT been canceled and we know if we are able to proceed, all of you will be excited to see and compete with your fellow athletes and friends from around the USA.
This means your Regional fee will still have to be paid under the wildcard status, but athletes will now automatically qualify in all events for the National Championship. We have extended the Regional fee deadline to May 1st. Once we have the final confirmation that our National Championship is moving forward as planned, we will get with the membership on the new due date for Nationals registration.
If your athletes do not plan on attending Nationals and were only attending Regionals, we will give a refund of regional fees. You will need to contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We require the request in writing.
This is still a very fluid situation and we ask for everyone's patience during this time. We will continue to update the membership as more information becomes available with revised due dates for the National Championship and upcoming challenges for our membership.
Keeping with our new slogan: Jump Rope: Can't Stop, Won't Stop!
