Age vs. Level – Aren’t They the Same?

Heart of Cheer published Age vs. Level – Aren’t They the Same?, clarifying something many misunderstand.

I find great interest when a parent would rather (and I have seen this happen) have their athlete compete on a Senior Level 1 team than a Junior Level 2 team, thinking for some odd reason this makes their athlete “better”. The confusion is great in this area because people keep equating age bracketing with level of ability.
