    Obviously I know that Worlds is level 5 and The Summit is 1-4. Why isn't The Summit shown on ESPN like Worlds? They're both made by Varsity right?

    I have to say, the Worlds coverage on ESPN was not that great!

    Yea the 2013 worlds coverage wasn't the best but I think the summit should be shown on ESPN. That would be alot to cover over in that amount of time.

    Worlds isn't Varsity, but Summit is. They have routines from Summit on Varsity's website.

    Keep in mind as well the Summit was brand new this year and they are still feeling it out. Also not to demean or put down the level 1-4 athletes since they are all incredible athletes in highly competitive divisions but I am guessing it is hard enough to get the L5 teams covered let alone a youth L2 team. The higher the skill the more likely people are to watch.

    Per TEAM? Does that mean that 5 worlds athletes can be on LS4 and 5 additional be on SR5 while 5 more on a SS4? Or, is that only 5 athletes per Worlds team can cross to other teams?

    So conceivably every Worlds athlete could compete at the Summit.

    too many crossovers for Summit. I can see a couple from levels 1-4 but no level 5 Worlds kids allowed.

    Teams can still have as many crossovers level 1 to 4, So no limit of level 4 athletes competing on level 1 to 3 teams.

    Is there any rule on number alternates for The Summit? If a team of 32 gets a bid (paid or at-large) & say only 28 can attend can you replace the other 4??

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly without going to search for the rules, there was no limitation on the number of alternates that could be used. This was a sore point with many because a completely different team could hit the mat at the Summit than the one that received the bid and it would still be perfectly legal.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure there are no limitations on cross-overs or alternates other than I believe there is a limit of 5 World's athletes that can compete on each team (which I could rant about forever)
