*We take all entries and then roughly divide them in half when there are two divisions for an age or level. Next we put any equivalent or tied seeds into the lower division so that the lower division will typically have more jumpers than the higher division of the same age or level bracket. Seeding is based on CAREER PR!

*Clinic on Thursday*

We will run a clinic in groups of 12 (one group on each pit) on Thursday afternoon if interest exists. Please contact Dave or Kevin directly. We will have some of our top vaulters working one on one with the clinic attendees.
