    Can cheer teams register as International 4 for 1 competition and then change to regular senior 4 the next week at another comp? I thought this was only allowed when International divisions were provisional.
    Tried to look up rules on USASF and can't locate anything.

    Maybe they are changing divisions completely? That is allowed. I would think that as long as you don’t compete at the same competitions as both international and senior 4, it wouldn’t be a problem. But, I’m not an expert on that

    This team shops bids, so they'll change divisions to get an International Bid, then try to get a D1 summit bid and decide which one they want to take :/

    I think the only rule is that once you get/accept a Summit bid in a division, you have to attend Summit in that division.

    You can compete for bids as whatever you want, but once you get the bid, you are bound to that division for Summit.

    Ex: You can bounce back and forth between J3 and IJ3 all you want, but if you get an IJ3 bid, you have to be IJ3 for Summit.

    Other sports would laugh at us for splitting a division of entirely U.S. teams into Junior and “International Junior” and allowing teams to enter whichever one they feel like for whatever random reason they feel like. As if the competition isn’t already thin enough after splitting every division into D1/D2 and Small/Medium/Coed, especially at comps that aren’t that well attended. It used to be that comps would combine divisions to prevent teams from having to go against themselves, but now it’s like the opposite happens and there are always 7283 divisions.

    I could see also moving to IJ if you had an older kid who needed a team. The up to 16 age group for IJ makes it a useful division.

    This....is the most accurate post ever.

    is there any doubt why no one takes us seriously?

    Most of these divisions are so thin you could put one stunt group and a bunch of spectators out there and win.

    At a small 2 day comp here last weekend there were 74 different divisions. 74 "National Champions". Most divisions were between 1-3 teams. It's become a joke.
