Declarations, upgrades, music, etc. email

Good Morning fellow club directors.
I wanted to remind you that Feb 28 is the final day to submit declarations for your teams.
They are to be sent to Stormi, our Group rep at:   grouprep@obta.ca
I also just wanted to remind you that Feb 28 is also the working deadline to submit membership status changes to Lisa Ross, our Membership Chair.
Many of us are unsure in September as to where our athletes are going to land, eg..sometimes we think a kid might be precompetitive, but we wind up having them do a solo.   Or a retired coach winds up being that last member of your team…all kinds of reasons.
I urge you to carefully examine your membership lists as sent to you recently, and make sure that every member is registered correctly in regard to what they are going to be doing this year.
These changes are done on a Data Change Form 102…if you need one, email Lisa atmembershipchair@obta.ca
Next:  how’s that music coming?!    Remember that like last year, all competition music – all groups, freestyles, pairs, etc, are to be submitted by email to me by March 13th.   Music must be emailed, correctly labelled in ONLY MP3 or MP4 format.   I can accept it on a usb stick, but I can not accept a CD (old technology, new computers don’t even have cd drives)  I realize that emailing music can be a job, but I think we would agree it more than makes up for it by the convenience of never having to worry about bringing music to a competition.
Coaches in practice gyms:   a reminder that in order for a coach to be in the practice gym at competitions they must be both certified and REGISTERED L1.  Coaching badges will be distributed at or prior to our first competition.   This would also be a good time to remind everyone that the practice gym policy is that only “still to compete” athletes and L 1 or higher coaches are allowed in the practice gym….no adults without coaching badges, no babies or children.  This is not just some silly rule, it is a risk management issue and is the protocol established by CBTF and we will be following it.  Just because so far a baby or small child has never been clocked on the head by a baton is no reason to think it can’t/won’t happen…imagine how we would all feel?
In closing, hope by now you are all on the facebook club directors page, and for some of you the coaches and judges facebook pages.   These are not the go-to source for official info, but they are certainly a great place for discussion, asking questions, and quick reminders that will be appreciated by you.   Also goes without saying that the CBTF.ca website is a must for info, as is the OBTA.ca site.
Hope all is going well with your clubs as you gear up for the competition season.  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me, or your specific rep:  Kyla for coaches, Amy for judges, Stormi for Groups
