GRPA ANNOUNCES DATE FOR THE 2017 WEBINARS & PHYSICAL MEETINGS-
The Georgia Recreation and Park Association member agencies are required to attend mandatory Swimming and Track Meetings for the current year which their teams plan to compete in District and State. All participating agencies are required to attend one of the three statewide meetings to cover the rules and regulations for the state swimming or track meet. Agencies that do not attend must pay a fine of $200 to the GRPA office. In an effort to assist Agencies that continue to compete from one year to the next, the SAC host Sites and the GRPA Professional Development Committee are launching several online webinars to assist members in meeting this requirement. The first of these meetings has been scheduled. If the participant/s log out early they will not receive credit for attending.
As GRPA advertises the online webinars, they will be targeting Agencies in GRPA who continually participate in Swimming or Track. Webinars will include SEPARATE SESSIONS for both Track and Swimming. Those agencies that register for the GRPA SAC Webinars to meet the mandatory meeting compliance in regards to Track and Swimming for GRPA will be sent the presentations once we have received the GoToMeeting Report and determined who actively participated. IN ORDER TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR BOTH TRACK & SWIMMING MEETING ATTENDANCE, BOTH WEBINARS AND/OR PHYSICAL MEETINGS FOR EACH SPORT WILL NEED TO BE ATTENDED. It is highly recommended you have your team’s coach(es) attend as well.
The webinars are scheduled to last approximately 1 ½ hours with an additional 30 minutes for questions and answers (Overall time roughly 2 hrs. with Questions). State Host and GRPA SAC staff will be available to answer questions.
