  • Carbo crams are held on the Friday evening before a competition.  They are "drop and ditch" events for parents - social/team bonding times for the girls.  Some host families will also plan a craft for the girls to work on during the carbo cram, but this is not mandatory whatsoever.  
  • Carbo crams are typically held for 1.5 - 2 hours between 6 - 8pm.  They should not go longer than 8pm due to early arrival times at competitions the next morning.
  • Carbo crams can be hosted in your home - you will be responsible for the main entree, and team members will potluck the sides, desserts, and beverages.
  • Carbo crams can also be hosted at restaurants (Panera, Noodles & Co, etc) - you will be responsible for contacting the restaurant to let them know we're coming, but all families will pay for their own meals.
