Nov 7-8 UConn Fall Mini-Camp and Tournament
This year's UConn Fall Mini-Camp and Husky Cup Competition will be held on Nov 7-8 at UConn. As in past years, this will be a great learning experience for students to be introduced to competition in a less formal and intimidating envirnoment. The competition will also give budding (and experienced) judges the opportunity to practice and get feedback. Note that the Saturday morning practice will include a judging seminar.
There will be junior events and if there's enough interest, separate categories for older (9-13 yrs) and younger (5-8 yrs) children.
Details are attached and posted on our web page:
Hope to see you there!
