    Things were definitely crazy up near the gym's area. Even about 10 miles south where I live had some pretty violent winds. The 2nd round of storms a couple hours later surely didn't help things either. Driving past some of the damage this morning looked awful.

    As far as I know, everyone in the CA Family is safe. Brad had some pretty significant damage to his house, but no one was hurt.

    That’s terrible. If he has a gofundme for the damage or anything, I will donate.

    Glad you’re all ok!

    There is a rumor on instagram that two girls on wildcats and a boy on cheetahs were kicked of the team because they cut a 12 years old girl hair without permission.

    There is a bit more to the story that I won't share, but essentially this is true.

    Word of advice to young athletes: "private" social media accounts are not even remotely as private as you think.

    Thanks for addressing this. CAs transparency is admirable. Wondering if this will have any affect on whether CA will place young athletes on traditionally older teams in the future??

    I don't see the ages involved being related to the incident, so I don't think this affects those decisions either way. The athletes making the immature, poor decisions were not the youngest ones.

    I'm so sorry to hear this was true. So sad that the kids made impetuous decisions like this. So sad for the girl who got her hair cut. Consequences are real and hopefully a lesson will be learned that help them grow into responsible adults.

    Sad that a hair rule is in place.....if that’s the case. Should be about talent not looks......

    Not sure what you're trying to say. There were 2 girls who (allegedly) cut another girl's hair without her permission. Those 2 girls were then removed from the team. I applaud CA for handling a case of what appears to have been bullying pretty quickly.

    I am pretty sure you significantly misunderstand the situation. No one has been removed for having a bad haircut. It involves minors, so I do not wish to go into detail, but it is far more serious than that.

    Absolutely. And as @JerseyGirl112 said above, actually addressing it publicly to the extent possible displays an admirable level of transparency and I think sends a powerful message to others. So often this is downplayed, swept under the rug, victims are blamed etc.

    Saw a tweet that an announcement was being made on Saturday but missed the actual announcement. Rumors of Colorado location??

    No announcement yet. Likely in an hour or two.
