But the goal I am sure would be for these teams that put in all this work time and $$ is Worlds.
I don't know why it's setup this way. My guess is the Worlds Advisory Board that sets the Worlds divisions and makes other changes to Worlds wants time to process the last Worlds before planning changes for the next. Plus the stated Worlds season starts November 1st and I'm sure an announcement would be made before then.
Why? It's never been stated as a Worlds division (and has obviously never been one in the past) so why would it not being one not make sense?
But with teams formed much earlier than that. It does make sense to process each worlds every year before changes are made
**Did someone say MORE puppy dog pictures?**
When teams are formed is outside the USASF's control. Choosing to form a team assuming it will be Worlds eligible before an announcement is made or choosing to wait is a program's decision.
In reality Americans have it better than most. Look at the teams listed here that have bids. I wonder if any of them would prefer to be small but have a bid as AG or large.
not like it matters too much. it's not like it's a brand new division with no other options if it doesn't get approved. If it doesn't, they'll be ioc5 still. obviously not as competitive but at least these teams do have a backup plan!
Agree, with the 2 well known gyms that I know of that have Sm IOC5 teams formed, I don't think they did so to not got to Worlds! My friend would b pretty ticked off if that is the case!
So would international teams who already have bids in the IOC5 division be reclassified to Large IOC5 if the small/large divisions become worlds divisions?
German Teams with Bids
IOAG 5 (not sure about this i think they could also be Small Senior since they are Jrs here): Loony Dolphins
IOAG 5 (same here , they could prob compete Small Coed) : Junior Wildcats
IOC 5: Eintracht Frankfurt
IOAG 5: Cheerforce Hail
IOAG 6: Dolphins Allstars
IOC 6 : FTG Allstars Bullets
I'm not on the WAB, but would guess that will be addressed at the August meeting also. I talked to one person on the committee and asked if they would consider allowing a team that has a bid and met the criteria for small coed at the bid event to have the option of competing in small coed at Worlds. I don't know if any teams exist like this so it may be an irrelevant request.
Ok thanks. I can't think of any like that in the UK off the top of my head, but I also don't think there are restrictions on rosters between receiving the bid and competing at Worlds, due to the fact that it's a different season for us. So I don't know whether a team would just be given the choice. Wait and see I guess! All this is merely curiosity on my part, thanks for your response.
France 2016 bids:
IOC5 Cheer Excess (FFFA - AL)
IO5 Phoenix (SACD - AL)
In the uk we have our seasons set up very different from the US, our nationals is at Easter time so if you win a bid at nationals you save it till the next year. This is why teams are formed so early
We would love to see IOC6 split in small and large. We have a bid for 2016 for IOC6 and we won it in Limited Coed 6 (Small Coed).
Its hard going on the floor with 4 guys and competing against teams with 15 guys.
But we'll see im August where we will compete in next season at worlds
If you're referring to USASF, I'm pretty sure starting this season onwards Small IOC applies to both level 5 & 6.
