CA5? (Well, No, but A5 is Heading to China!)May 14, 2013 -
Rising juniors and seniors currently playing for A5, GA5 or A5 South will have the opportunity to try out for a team that will compete in China this November. Plans are still being formulated, but here's what we know to date:
Date of Trip - November 21 - December 1 (spanning the weekends before and after Thanksgiving so as to minimize school days missed).
Itinerary is still being formulated. The trip will start with sightseeing and competition in Beijing. From there the team will travel by bullet train to Nanjing, Zhejian and Shanghai for training and competition with various National and Club Teams. Return home from Shanghai.
Cost - the budget is not yet finalized, but think in terms of $4 - $5000 all in.
Informational Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at SVC. We will have a better feel for the itinerary, cost, etc., by that time.
Tryouts will be held on Sunday, June 2nd, from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
Practice - though the team may practice as a group on occasion this fall, most of the concentrated/team training for this trip will occur after the High School season is over.
