Great progress was made this week at the USA Games Youth Summit as students learned, got creative, collaborated, and set goals! The week culminated with the students reflecting on their past successes and making a plan for the future. Each state made a poster to share at the Youth Expo this morning with CEOs, other states, and special guests. We liked the saying we heard from Oscar H. earlier in the week, "Sacrifice for Success," and plan to keep that in mind this coming year
My Experience Coaching Flag Football at the 2014 USA Games by Athlete-Coach John Stemper
2014-06-23 09:14:55 - By: Christina Harris
The flag football games were great! We ended up winning the National Championship in Division 2. It was amazing to be here coaching and the athletes were great. I am so glad to have been here as a coach and to be a part of the thrill of everything. I love to play, but just to come out here and be a part of the team was amazing. I am most proud of how all of our athletes were communicating together during the games and afterwards, too. We have all made friends that will last a lifetime.

WOW!!! This has been fantastic. We're cheering for Angela Arsiniega. She is a gymnast for Team Wisconsin. This is our first time at nationals. The Send Off and Opening Ceremony were very moving. Seeing Angela walk into that area with all the athletes was a once in a lifetime moment. We watched gymnastics over the past three days. They were all great. Watching our Angela has moved us beyond words. Like seeing her excitement and the huge smile when she finished an event.
