    Team Canada was not 'asked/told' to go Premiere after continually winning. ICU simply made a rule where you could only be in 2 divisions. Since Elite was obviously easier for Canada they wanted to challenge themselves. Also- many level 5 cheerleaders are asked to refrain from doing Team Canada in order to concentrate on USASF Cheer Worlds

    Thank you for claryfing, that was kind of an urban legend right there, i have heard about that too but no one really actually knew
    In my opinion it would not even make sense to make someone go level 6. USA wins Level 6 every year and it's not like they could go anywhere else
    Also just bc you win Level 5 does not mean you make an amazing Lvl 6 Team

    I have not read up on any of this, but if they plan on adding semis for ICU, does this mean competing on the Thursday (Semis) and Friday (finals)? Thats a lot of competing for athletes in ICU and USASF worlds. Potentially competing up to 5 times! holy!

    Man that makes for a loooong weekend. Especially considering teams would fly down early to train. May end up costing athletes even more $$ :(

    Most European teams stay in Florida for 10 days anyway, so I don't think it will change for them. But I'm not sure how long Canadian, Asian and South American teams etc stay? It sucks if it becomes more expensive for them. It will definitely be more expensive for spectators, paying for all those days...
