2 CLUBS CARE CAMPAIGN Take the time to learn about all the valuable resources that are provided with the Clubs Care Campaign. Visit usagym.org/clubscare. Club owners - if you have not downloaded and read the quick reference guide, please do so.

3 CLUBS CARE CAMPAIGN The Clubs Care Campaign is extending, as a member club benefit, a NEW university course, U302 Recognizing and Responding. This course will teach about the various forms of child abuse, indicators of abuse, and about how to effectively report abuse. This course provides State specific information on Reporting Laws.

4 MEMBER CLUB ADVOCACY PROGRAM MCLA is a National Legislative Advocacy Program for Member Clubs that provides basic tools for building awareness with your state legislators on the economic, social and business impact gymnastics provides in each city and state. With the increase of legislation in each of our states, having relationships that allow the gymnastics community to influence the outcome of this legislation is important. The MCLA program assists in facilitating that. Go to the USA Gymnastics Club Services Page for more information.

5 The new Meet Reservation system will provide club administrators a tool to assign coaches and athletes to sanctioned competitions. While this new tool is not developed to accept payments for competition entries, Meet Directors can rest assured that the member are valid and reduces the opportunity of invalid member s participating in sanctioned events.
