The Times of Israel published Sports Minister Supports Nixing Cheerleading Acts.

RantSports.com published NFL Cheerleading Scam is a Joke; Bengals Cheerleader Latest to Tell All.
The NFL cheerleading scam has now spread to a second AFC North team as former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Alexa Brenneman has come forward, just like a former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader to say that she was taken advantage of while performing as a member of the Ben-Gals. She has made public the rules and regulations for being a Ben-Gal, which are extremely ridiculous and somewhat comical if you’ve never been subject to them.

The deadline for submitting qualifying videos for Junior Dance Worlds is March 1st, just over a week away. For more information visit USASFDance.net.
Congratulations to everyone that survived Cheersport and extra congratulations to everyone that performed and placed well.
Good luck to everyone at COA, JAMZ, and NCA Open Nationals.

“I was supposed to be doing a front flip and instead dove. I was estimated about 15-feet and just dove and hit the top of my head,” recalled Robinson, “It was like pain all over but at the same time tingling and numb all at the same time. It was so weird; it was like an out of body experience.”
