    Pretty much. This is just difficulty though, it won't do too much damage if you're using front spots to keep a good technique score. But basically not using front spots, and doing two man stunts when allotted are essential to upping your difficulty score.

    I agree 1000%. My cp has been cheering for the better part of 12 years now. I am a single parent with a single parent income with 3 kids. Had I known how expensive cheer was going to get, I probably would have never continued. However, she loves the sport so I do what I can to pay for it (booster club, fundraising, second job, selling myself (jk), etc.) But I feel like she is holding herself back because she knows I couldn't afford to pay for her to be on a higher level (i.e. world's) team. She had the skills at one point, albeit not consistent, but held back. She always said she didn't want to be on a worlds team, but I could tell by the way she watched those teams, she did. She said she's retiring after this season and I support her 100% either way. I just can't help but think, that the only reason she is retiring, is because of the money. It saddens me that we are so financially limited. So your assessment makes complete sense.

    @cfwp.cheerleader We definitely are not in the top income bracket, far from it. I am a single Mom of 3, no child support, and on a teacher's salary. Many challenges , with ups & downs. CP was removed from one World's team because of my financial struggles. With that said CP just turned 14 and attended Worlds last season/made finals. Is on another World's team this season. It's possible, but definitely not easy.

    That's amazing to hear. I should edit my post to state to a 'higher income bracket' instead of 'top income bracket', but I have made the distinction to say it is very difficult/ near impossible without financial backing. Of course there are always exceptions to every rule - and it appears your daughter is one of them. Kudos to you and your daughter. :kiss:

    I'm sorry to hear that @FamUsM0m - I agree it is incredibly tough - I hope your daughter finds passion in something after cheer.

    Oh I'm sure she will :). She's very talented and smart. She still loves cheer. Regardless, she's a happy kid :)
