Observations After Event 19 of 2013-14

Event 19 took me to Florida for the 1st of 4 consecutive weekends for what was technically 2 events. The first part was one of my favorite events of each season because I love the styles of college routines and all-or-nothing finals, which I’ll only get to enjoy a couple times this season. The second part was a beach front 1-day All*Star championship, which seems like a great way to end the regular season for a team. Regarding the performances, there isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said. The college performances seemed better overall than they have in previous years. Although many teams had a deduction for something, I feel like the overall amount of mistakes was down. Hopefully this is due to coaches focusing on execution a little more than what’s been done in the past.

On the rules side of things, if you have any skills that you want reviewed for end of the season events, I strongly suggest you send them in today or tomorrow. The group that can reply on behalf of the USASF starts getting to Orlando on Tuesday and some of us don’t leave until Monday, May 5th. I’m not expecting many replies to be sent during this time due to us having other responsibilities.

As a reminder, a new and streamlined Athlete Membership program begins with the 2014-15 season. Membership provides athletes with the opportunity to participate in a safer sport and allows the USASF to administer full support for athletes through current and ongoing programs. As you plan tryout information, remember that an annual Athlete Membership fee of $30 for all athletes begins August 1.

World 2015

In order to maintain the balance of Paid and At-Large bids awarded for Cheer Worlds, the Sanctioning Committee has adjusted the number of At-Large Bids to be awarded per Paid Bid for the 2014-15 season from three (3) to two (2). The number of available At-Large bids naturally fluctuates each year based on the number of Tier 1 and Tier 2 event producer members, the mix of teams at their bid giving events and the number of Paid bids awarded. This adjustment allows for a more even distribution of bids to The Cheerleading Worlds.
