2014 Jr Skills Camp format change

Due to a lack of available coaches MSPA is forced to cancel the July long weekend Junior Skills Camp as originally planned. As we were going to limit the camp to 8 participants we will be giving 5 coach jump lift tickets to the first 8 registered juniors which can be used over the course of the jump season.

These tickets are to be used to pay for a qualified coach’s lift ticket for 1 on 1 coaching. It will be up to the participant to arrange jumps with a coach and can be used all in one weekend or over a few weekends.

All those that have registered and do not want to take advantage of this offer will have their registration fee refunded. Please contact Chris at [email protected]  or Barry at [email protected] for further information. (Coaches and participants)

Registrations will be accepted until June 28th or until all available slots are full. Further Paypal registrations have been disabled, please contact Chris at [email protected] to arrange for payment. Remaining slots on a first come first serve basis.
