Dear International Cup Athletes and Coaches!

Congratulations! We have just taken a short breath following the World Championships and plans for your 2019 participation in the International Cup and Grand Prix competitions are under way! YOU have qualified to be a member of the 2019 US Team for one or both of these events.

Further details have come out after the WBTF meetings in Kissimmee, to help with your planning:
Competition location: Limoges, France
August 5th-9th International Cup
August 9th Majorettes (Majorette rules will not be available until Sept. 1, at which time the USTA will let membership know how this affects any of our membership participation)
August 10th-11th Grand Prix Events (formerly known and selected as IC Elite events in solo, 2 baton, Duet and team)

The tour package will be planned to include practice days prior to the start of the competitions. Tour information is forthcoming.

Important notes: Download and read the following documents which have printed deadlines and information pertinent to your participation on the team and on the tour.
- US Team Member Manual
- US Tour Manual
- US Team Member Contract
- Code of Conduct (to be revised)
- TODAY the Intent to Compete forms have gone live. What does this mean for you? It means you head to the website:  You have until Sept. 1, 2018 to complete this form for the events you are eligible in. After that date, the next qualifying athlete will receive their invitation to become a member of the team in that event.

If you have any questions, please direct them to me, as your Team Coordinator and Technical Member. We are so excited to have this team of athletes begin the journey to another adventure in International twirling!!

Go USA!!! Recapturing the Gold in every way!!
