    .....and then she said, they're being held hostage, silenced, demeaned, injured and forced to pay at CA while barely wearing clothes.

    Oh sis...
    First of all, CA is not the only game in town and they know that. You could throw a rock in Plano/DFW and hit at least 10 cheer gyms. Just in that area I can name 3 and that's not even counting some of the smaller ones that have just opened.
    Second, you do realize that the gym isn't just that one room up front that used to be the dance studio? There a is giant gym with 6 full floors? I challenge you to name one gym larger than CA in DFW or even Texas.
    What your coming across as is a bitter mom whose child got slighted in some way so now you are on a personal rampage to bad mouth the gym. I suggest you take a step back because while it seems the cheer industry is large, it is really small. You have yet to actually substantiate any of your claims. While it's completely possible kids can collide (especially in open gym environments) I highly doubt the coaching staff is ignoring it. If there is one gym that focuses on "perfection before progression" (almost to an insane level), it's CA.
    Or you are an athlete that is really salty you lost to a CA team.

    I KNOW! I haven't been around at all because when your kid drives you get really disconnected from the season. Then we went to our 1st comp and I was like "dang I've been a bad cheer mom..." so here I am and I was gifted with a holiday troll!

    When your tryout packet says high school graduates pay a lower rate, is that only for aged out graduates or super seniors as well?

    The rate is for anyone who starts the season as a graduate of HS, which would include super seniors in most cases.

    Did Cheetahs retroactively decline their paid bid from WSF? Saw that WCSS was awarded the declined bid and cheetahs no longer listed. Just roster changes?

    Someone posted on twitter that it was due to roster changes.

    Too many roster changes. I really wish the number of allowed roster changes scaled with the size of the team. 3 is probably more than enough for a team of 14-15, but not nearly enough for a team of 38.

    I believe that team was entered multiple times into the database and I didn't have a way to delete it, so I tried to rename the extras something to discourage those from being used. (I couldn't delete any because I am not an admin there.). I guess someone "used" the "do not use" team.

    How come Wildcats are not competing in the international division this year?

    Multiple reasons, but one of the main ones is that we are more philosophically aligned with the USASF scoring system that doesn't devalue tumbling and is most similar to what those athletes have competed for the majority of their careers. We also like the finalists being based on score/merit alone and not geography. (I believe ICU should continue to be the country vs country competition, and IASF/USASF should be solely gym/club based.)

    We still have several international teams, and will compete under those rules and scoring system when required. Every team/location will do what best fits their team or situation.
