Area 2 Championships - Young Rider Awards

It was so great to see the many Area 2 Young Riders doing so well at the Championships.  There were 52 of you competing, we provided YRAP awards  recognizing the individual performances in the championship divisions.  There were not enough entries to warrant a team competition in the non-championship divisions so individual awards were offered for these riders as well.   I will be mailing the non-Championships ribbons to you soon.  For those who are missing ribbons from Buck's County or Marlborough, the new order of ribbons has arrived so they are being mailed too.

The pictures of championship winners can be found on GRC Photo - please go look on Tuesday http://www.grcphoto.com/grcphto_002.htm and see the great shots!

Below is the long list of all the winners - I am very proud of you all!!

YRAP Fall Activities

I personally took a little time off following the packed July that included our WoW Camp, the USPC Championships, and the NAJYRC.  August was time to reconnect with family and start planning 2014 activities for YRAP.

The fall season is in full swing with at least 2 options every weekend to compete.  YRAP has a number of learning activities planned across the area.  This note contains detalis from our "Behind the Scenes" at 5 Points in NC.  We are gearing up for the two remaining pinacle activities the Area 2 Championship at Morven Park and the Waredaca 3-Day.  I do hope that you will be attending at least one of these activities either as a competitor or volunteer as there is so much you can learn without having to pay $$$ to do so.

Young Rider Programs in Area 2

Most of the information below was presented at the Area 2 Annual Meeting in Leesburg VA in January. The purpose of this document is to help everyone understand the different tracks of activities being offered to young riders and also see the benefit to expand your USEA membership to include the Young Rider program. There are two tracks – NAJYRC and YRAP. These are explained in detail below. The Young Rider (YR) program encompasses both of these tracks and riders are welcome to move between the tracks to take advantage of the activities that meet their individual needs. After reviewing the details below, feel free to contact any of the coordinators if you have any questions.

What is the YR Program?

2013 YRAP mid-year report

YRAP, Young RIder Advancement Program is an educational arm of the Area 2 Young Rider Program we coordinate a number of learning opportunities and team competitions throughout the area.  Our educational activities are focused on Beginner Novice through Training Level riders.  We also support the Preliminary level riders who have aged out, or are not otherwise candidates for the NAJYRC.  Most of our activities are free to members. A big part of the program is connecting riders with each other and ICP instructors.  

New this year is the YRAP Pilot Program, sponsored by Morningside Training Center, which provides focused instruction and a scholarship opportunity for the Waredaca 3-Day that is geared to riders who plan to tryout for a future NAJYRC team.  Please check out the USEA Area 2 Calendar for more details of the specific activities planned each month.  The YRAP activities are color coded and include further details.

We look forward to your participation, feel free to contact Chris Donovan YRAP Coordinator with any questions you may have. 410-409-2255.
