    Oof. They have that many teams left? That's such a shame. GA has really fallen, and they had some of the BEST dances out there.

    They never were a super big gym. I believe in 2010, the last time they won worlds, they only had 4 or 5 teams.

    IIRC, they also closed and then reopened with only senior 3, 4, and 5. Idk how long they kept that model but yeah, that'll kill a gym.

    They have a mini & youth prep team I think and 1 Jr and 2 Sr full year teams that do really well in D2.

    I loved Midwest’s Wicked Claws. I’m a huge huge Wicked fan, so I adored it.

    They never really were a big gym as far as number of teams/athletes. Usually only a few older/higher level teams, even back in the day. But I think once JP (the original owner) left a few years ago, things have dropped off even more.

    I don't really know, it's only our 3rd year here. I didn't even know at first they had had successful worlds teams, I was like what really?!

    We looked into them for CP but she doesn't wanna be D2 so it was a no.

    The owner sold it and that’s when stingray had purple their first large coed team. He reopened GA after a year then left again.

    i would love to see a throwback theme in terms of maybe 80's or 90's music.
    although with the music rules i dont even think that could be done, unless they could find a bunch of 80's/90's cover songs

    or i would love to see more teams do throwback themes of their own teams greatest music or dances, etc. I think shooting stars did it one year?...

    They got 3rd. I loved that routine so much. Thank goodness they came back from that NCA performance.

    Generally not a fan. BUT I really did like f5 baseball last year. There are few routines I don't get tired of (including my own children's routines but then at least I have some adrenaline because I want them to do well). The baseball routine I likes because each time I was looking at it and seeing different aspect of the themes.

    I felt they received higher (style) points for the new uniform than the overall routine actually deserved, especially at the start of the season. If I had been an F5 parent and had to buy that themed uniform for one season I would not have been happy.
