    What division did you compete in ? I'm really sorry you won't have next year to compete at NCA for a title. The whole industry suffers at the hands of coaches behaving in this manner. There is not much worse in cheer than a coach that flirts with the rule book. Obviously they make a better cheater than a teacher.

    To be honest everyone loses when this occurs, including the coach. Even the 'winning' team's athletes lose by being cheated out of an opportunity to score a valid win. And then look at what the coach is teaching them by his/her example. Not to mention the coach is as much as telling them they aren't good enough to win on their own merit.

    You guys totally did the right thing by staying classy. It may not seem like it now, but you walked away with something far more valuable than any title, your integrity. The sandbagging coach could learn from you guys.

    You are justified to feel it was unfair, it was. But, unless you can do something to rectify the situation the best thing you can do is to move on. Life is too short to waste time on fools and you have a life to look forward to. Obviously you are a very mature individual and have a wonderful future ahead of you.

    In time you will find that life is always willing to throw you curves. Your success in life will be determined by your resilience and the manner in which you handle those curves.

    I'd rather not say the division because I don't want to offend anyone if there's people from those teams on the boards (although I doubt there are because they were smallish gyms). But yes I agree :)

    I only asked about your division because I recalled you mentioning you're on a Level 3 team (I think so anyway, didn't you ?) and my daughter is on a Level 3 team as well. So, I watched the Level 3 performances at NCA this past weekend. Being familiar with the teams in the divisions I could surmise the team that is the object of our discussion. But, I'm not interested in bashing anybody or calling them out. You're doing the correct thing however in order to prevent potential controversy or conflict. That wasn't your last comp of the season was it ? I certainly hope that you'll be able to end your final season on a positive note.

    Again, I'd rather not say. And no, we still have one more competition that is also a bid opportunity. I also get to be back on my other team, s4. I couldn't cross levels in Dallas so I had to remain only in my l3 team, but now I'm back. But hoping for the best

    Theapia is the classiest coach I have ever met. She does what's best for the teams and her kids. Good luck to everyone competing!

    Good luck. I hope you receive the bid you desire and that the remainder of your season proves to be all you hope it to be.
