Please remember all athletes need to be USASF 5 Star Athlete Members prior to competing at a qualifier to be eligible for a Worlds bid and teams must provide a copy of their official USASF roster to the event producer at the event where they are competing to receive their bid to Worlds.
To double check that you are in compliance programs need to log into their USASF Gym profile and view the Event Roster. The athletes on the Worlds teams must have an “X” under the “Five Star” column to be eligible.
Event 4 was my first of many Worlds bid events this season. One positive observation was how much better Level 2 baskets have become. I feel like the used to consistently be low, crooked, and generally a little sloppy, but lately they have been significantly higher, straighter, and just generally better. Great job coaches!
This weekend also reinforced Tiny 1 being my favorite division to watch thanks to the little girl that realized the screen behind them was showing the routine and stopped to watch it instead of performing.
As far as rules stuff goes, Les tweeted what was most prominently on the Core Officials’ minds:
Philly.com published 2 1/2 Minutes of Serious Cheerleading.
“Last year, she was a flier, and I was scared to death,” he said Sunday over a pounding dance track from another squad’s performance elsewhere in the Wildwoods Convention Center. “All I wanted to do was get her down. This year, she’s a base. It’s helping my anxieties.”
Cheer Safe published Cheer Safety Through Coaches’ Eyes.
