    Het everyone, my university team is headed to SC to compete at Canam Nationals.. they have been in the past and said it was good. But my years and years of cheer want more information than that!
    Who go’s? (CEA or other)
    How is the venue?
    Athlete gifts?
    Well run?
    Run on time?
    And any other information you can give me.. it’ll be my first time competing in the US with university rather then AllStar so I’m sure it’ll be a whole other experience...

    Ive gone once as a collegiate athlete (when I was an allstar we did BATB, not canam), and this wil be my second as a coach, and from what I’ve been able to tell it’s a good comp.
    CEA and Rockstar are the two gyms with well-known worlds teams that will be in attendance.
    The year I competed with my university (I try to forget about that tragic day lol), we received a key chain, and my kiddos got pop sockets last year as athlete gifts. If you win in a collegiate division I believe you get backpacks- jackets go to two day divisions.
    Competition is ran fairly well! They don’t check bags or stop you from bringing in food so pack snacks. Expect parking to be crazy as this weekend is almost ALWAYS the same weekend as a bike rally on the same road as the convention center, so prepare and extra hour or two before your meet time just in case.
    Hope this helps a little! I’m assuming you’re with UoG- I love watching you guys. Good luck!

    We have attended a couple of times, but are not going this season :( the most important thing is if you are driving to the venue on comp days and the car show is happening, give yourself a lot of extra time to get there. The venue is extremely hot. Warn your spectators :) there is a Starbucks in the attached hotel. They also sell sangria and BBQ sandwiches there. It is a nice respite from inside the venue. Comp runs fairly in time and is easy to get around. It can get congested in the hallways, so I usually walked outside and went in the other doors. Very easy venue.

    Myrtle Beach is one of my favorite places for comps. Lots of restaurants and activities to do. Definitely a compaction!! Have fun

    Thanks, yes! I’m with UOG co-Ed! Us and our all girl team are the only Canadian teams down this year as far as I know, glad to hear about the snacks! Definitely wish we were two-day for all the travel to get here

    Just got out of the coaches meeting and was in a conversation with your coaches- super bubbly and funny. Hate to hear about the sickness that hit your team!! Good luck! We will be watching!

    Do you happen to know who the live shot photographers were? I’d love to see if I can find some action shots.. didn’t get a chance to go to the booth because I got a concussion
