Hello, Coaches!

I am excited to be your DJ and emcee for the 2018 AYC Regionals competition in New Hampshire!

There are a tremendous number of teams competing on November 17th. In order to streamline the music submission and loading process, here are the guidelines that must be followed:

1.       Music must be submitted via email to

2.       Subject line of email must say "AYC Regionals - "

3.       Submitted music must be an .mp3 file.

a.       (A conversion to .mp3 can be done in iTunes. Highlight the track, then click on File>Convert>Create MP3 Version. The .mp3 version will appear in your iTunes library next to the original. Highlight the .mp3 and then copy it.)

4.       Email must include all identifying information for the team - name, comp category (age), color level, etc. (Bedford Bulldogs, div 12 large red)

5.       Indicate whether your routine starts with cheer or the music track.

6.       Must include contact information (email and phone number) for the coach/asst. coach.

7.       Must be submitted by Tuesday, November 13th to guarantee being loaded in time for the competition.

8.       Coaches must bring backup music on day of competition on an iPhone/iPod or Android.

a.       If backup method is needed – or music is not submitted in time – the team must provide a person to operate the device/play the music track who stays at the DJ table for the entirety of the routine.

9.       I will confirm receipt of music to each organization and let folks know if there are any issues. I likely will start processing the submissions on or around Nov. 8th.

On day of competition, I will not start a track until I get the cue to do so from the coach. This cue should be a raised hand so there is no question that it is the music cue. I will have a line of sight to the coaches’ chairs at each mat, but cannot guarantee I won’t be off to the side or behind you – so hand high in the air, please!

Congratulations on making it to Regionals…I can’t wait to see what you bring!

Warm-up Flow:

Teams need to get to warm ups on their own, they will not be called down or escorted down. Please refer to the map titled “to stretching area” Once downstairs, teams will line up in order of performance and cycle through warm ups. You should be in the warm up area 10 minutes before your warm up time.

These are the warm-up stations:

* waiting to get on stretching mats. This is a great time to get them warmed up by jogging in place

* They will then have 4 minutes on the stretching mats. No jumping, tumbling, stunting, etc.

* Next they will follow the orange arrows on the map to get on the tumble/Jump/stunt mats – less than 1 minute so don’t stop for bathroom breaks.

* Tumble/Jump/Stunt mats – 4 minutes providing you arrive on time. Here you can do what you want

* They will then wait in the tunnel to take the 9 mats, this wait is about 1 minute

* They will then be called to the 9 panels of practice mats for 4 minutes. This is a quiet run through     without music or loud voices. Do not attempt to do a 2nd run through.

*,The last station is 4 minutes on 3 mats to work on what you want.

* The last spot is waiting to perform, approximately 12 minutes of cool down prior to performance. Please keep them together and quiet.  There is very little room for teams in the warm up area. Please review “flow from warm up to performance” map

After your performance is completed, please move your team along so we can stay on schedule
