    I have had the privilege of practicing with my team at the CA gym before a competition. They graciously opened their doors for other teams, not from the area, to practice before a major competition. I would hardly call 6 full floors plus room for a tumble track and more a small facility. There were tons of teams that day, all practicing at the same time and there was never a safety concern. Is it possible that the child was unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time?

    If your judging a gym based off what athletes and coaches post on their instagrams that you dont agree with, i think you are going to have a hard time finding a gym that doesnt.

    .....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.
