 More Added Value for TUTP Members

Here is what we are adding (FOR FREE!!!!!) to the Team USA Training Program starting immediately.

1- "Working out with the Head Coaches." Melvin, Sabrina, and Rafaela are each going to take you behind the scenes and allow you to come and work out with them. Not once. Not just once a week. But THREE times a week. Yep!!! Each one of them is going to be going live each week (which adds up to three times a week for you) and inviting you into their personal workout routine. Here is how it will work. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday they will announce that morning what time they will be going live. If you're available, you can join in with them live. If not, the workout will be in the facebook group for you to follow along with at your convenience. Talk about motivation. Would you like Rafa to kick your but in a stall wall routine? Well that's coming. How about Sabrina walking you through her whole pre-routine conditioning? That's coming too. And of course Melvin will be showing all his ways of staying in tip top shape also. I, for one, seriously can't wait!


2- Coaches Corner- We know you guys need LOTS of support as you prepare your routine. So we are creating the coaches corner in the facebook group. Each week you may submit one "move" or up to 20 seconds of your routine to be judged. Want to know if your jade is 180? Submit it! Want to know if you've got microbends? Submit it! Curious if your transition will count as an acro move? Submit it. This is just as important for pole art as it is for pole sport. Although the grading rubric is different, having clean lines and fully executed moves is just as important in pole art. To submit: just hashtag your post #coachescorner and tag me in it. Every week on Friday I will have one of our judges go through all the posts and comment on them. PLEASE utilize this. This is going to be a game changer for anyone who buys into this practice. I highly suggest you submit one video EVERY week. Don't miss this chance to get more added feedback.

Sign up for your 30 min routine review on zoom.

Everyone in the Team USA Training Program receives one 30 minute private lesson with one of the head coaches or head judges to review their score from Nationals and make a game plan as to what needs to happen to improve for Worlds. You may schedule this anytime you are ready.  We highly suggest you do this ASAP. Once Mindbody is set up, we will have an alternative way to schedule. For now please email the athlete chair and she will help get your meeting set up. 

Get your additional routine scorings

In addition to your 30 minute private lesson to go over your routine, you may submit a video recording of your updated routine 2 times between now and worlds. 
Simply fill out the form through the button here and you will be asked to upload a video of your routine. A judge or head coach will then score your routine and provide written feedback. Please allow 7 days from the time you submit before expecting your feedback.

Also, please send a quick email to [email protected] to let us know you have submitted your video.

Set up your post worlds routine 

After Dec 20, 2021 you may schedule a 30 minute private lesson with one of the head coaches to review your performance at Worlds, your training over the last three months, and to set a plan for the new year. We will set specific goals with plans of action based off of your intentions for the next year.  Please make sure to have a video of your performance at Worlds ready along with your scores (as much as possible).
