    Maybe the safety judge didn’t see the infraction at the regional level.

    Still coach’s responsibility. Coach’s that don’t know rules are asking for trouble.

    I live in an area where judges routinely don't know the specifics of the rules and will arbitrarily assign deductions throughout the season, sometimes at the end of the season at the final big competition. And it's the same judges at each competition too. We now send in every stunt and keep the "its legal" response on our phones, incase there is ever a discrepancy from competition to competition. It's saved our butts many times with judges who don't know the rules well. Or who are using a rule book from previous years. Or I could go on and on. :p

    That's all we've got . We do have some great judges too, but most are just too new and don't have a lot of experience in all areas of cheer (school, all-star, college). We don't have more people available, so we have to go with who we have
