    I'm not comparing our situation to others, but those (and other) decisions are incredibly tough given what we don't know. Nearly every decision you make these days is also far more complicated than people make it out to be.

    If I could post a pic, I’d post the one from The Office where Pam, Dwight and Michael are all in a standoff and label them SE, Orange, WCSS.

    This may be a grim request, but is there anybody who can make a sort of Wiki page, but it's just 'gyms that have ended their seasons early due to COVID-19'. Sounds terrible asking but I would like to know who is in vs. who is out at this point and sort of have a tracker to see what's going on

    You could start a thread for it.

    Not sure if this link will work, but this Twitter seems to have a good list going.

    From my friend at Prodigy they have not officially pulled out of Worlds and Summit yet, but she would not be surprised if it is coming soon.

    I heard SOT but didn’t see anything official. Dallas county stay at home order was extended until May 20. I don’t see how they could continue.

    I don’t know about anyone else... but I know for us- it was extremely important that we gave kids the opportunity to get their feelings out... that we had a dialogue with them and made them feel like They above all else were first-
    I can’t say enough how heart breaking it is to see a senior cry or a kid who has worked hard to finally meet their goal/goals to only have the carpet ripped out from under them by something that’s completely out of their control - however this is SO much bigger than cheerleading. Really hoping and praying for victory over this awful virus.

    Correction on ICE Barrington:

    I re-read the announcement and it appears that they are out of Summit but NOT Worlds.

    The announcement mentioned them being out of Global Championships. I thought that meant Worlds but refers to a completely different event I've never heard of.

    With the season they had, I didn't think they would. They are going to keep holding out.

    If Worlds is rescheduled, even if it's like October and they are Last Big Gym Standing, it would not surprise me if they still competed.

    If Tarrant County doesn’t follow suit they could theoretically move all practices to their Arlington gym.
