In just 2 weeks time, Master Devita will be hosting the first tournament of the year. His tournament, held in Greenwich, CT, is great for getting new competitors acclimated to the tournament atmosphere and at the same time, helps our veteran competitors get back in the swing of things.
So far our team is looking strong for the first tournament. Our tentative list of Team Seven Star competitors for the opening competition looks like this:
Charles McManus - 3rd Dan, Team Coach
Bianca Abad - 3rd Gup, Team Captain
Sean Cronin - 6th Gup
Aaron Wang - 6th Gup*
Jayme Tuttle - 7th Gup*
Jaden Smith - 8th Gup
Kenneth Dong - 10th Gup*
Kevin Dong - 10th Gup*
* Rookie Team Seven Star Members
New for this year, the highest ranking team member attending the event (besides Mr. McManus) will be designated the 'Team Captain'. The Team Captain will be chosen about 1 month from the tournament date. It will be this persons job to help motivate the team during training in the weeks leading up to the event.
Through this blog, we will update you on the status of the team and the progress of our training as we countdown to Nationals for 2014!!
