- Any level/division can be scheduled at anytime throughout the weekend
- Session Summary will be emailed to coaches in December 2019 and published online after coaches verification.
- We will not have any idea what days specific sessions different levels will compete until all registrations are received and verified.
- The earlier we can get final rosters and payments from clubs, means we can start building the meet sessions early!
- Scratch deadline is November 1, 2019. There are NO refunds after the scratch deadline – NO EXCEPTIONS!
- Because we anticipate the meet filling up early, we recommend parents WAIT to make non-refundable travel arrangements until you have received confirmation from your coach to do so.
- Awards ceremony will follow each session. Event medals, All Around medals and Team Awards will be issued.
- Age Divisions are equally distributed among the participants so that MANY medals can be awarded over the week

What to Pack : Phoenix Weather
During the month of January, visitors to the area can expect temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. And while it can often reach 80 degrees this time of year, plan that evening temperatures can also fall as low as 40 degrees in the desert winter.
And while that means most of Arizona will be wearing their Arizona Grand Sweatshirt, many of our cold-climate visitors can be seen walking the resort and hitting the golf course in shorts and t-shirts.
What else is there to do?
Gymnasts, coaches and families staying at the Arizona Grand Resort will have use of the entire property including the Oasis Water Park, award winning golf, recreational activities, resort facilities, hiking, fitness center and more. Shuttle services to Arizona Mills Mall available so guests can also enjoy a visit to the new SeaLife Aquarium, GameWorks, take in a movie at the Harkins IMAX or have a bite to eat at the RainForest Café.
