    That would be very difficult regarding the age range. Most, if not all top level JR teams have kids younger than 12.

    I feel like if they participate it would end up similar to the old juniors at worlds process and they would submit video and hopefully be ranked and the top team selected.

    However if what @canz said is correct and the division is 12-16y that would be a major game changer compared to the US's 14 and under junior age grid.

    Same for CA Jags. They only had one crossover to a Worlds team and she was an alternate.

    Same for Lites. There was one crossover. She crossed up to a worlds team with her main team being lites.

    I didn't think too many of the top J5 teams had many if any crossovers to senior teams. Though crossovers wouldn't really matter for ICU. The age range differences will affect teams though.

    Prodigy Moonlight had zero crossovers to their Worlds team. So the top 3 teams in Large Jr Coed at Summit 2016 had minimal crossovers, so yes, Colonels, Jags and Moonlight would all still have a team.

    The crossover rule isn't a big issue for gyms that have large numbers of level 5 athletes, but for smaller gyms (that are bigger than the 125 d2 cutoff) it will be much harder. If a gym had a total of like 160 athletes and one j5 and one sr5 crossovers undoubtably will happen more than gyms like WE, CA etc.

    It would certainly make it difficult to pick an all star team in its entirety to be your national team, I am now just speculating, but perhaps that is to encourage teams to be comprised of athletes from more than one programme.

    I guess gyms could try to form a team specific to this that also includes some senior worlds team athletes that are within the age range, not necessarily just J5 athletes. Not sure if gyms would do that though.

    The teams in England for ICU are unified and I think practice nce and month so I could see that happening if England decide to send a junior team to ICU

    I just don't see the US sending a junior team, especially not one hand-picked from athletes across the country. Team USA is already very specific about where/how they train and the time involved, and unless they brought a WHOLE allstar team that fit that age group, it just doesn't seem likely.

    Never mind the amount of school they would miss & if they are on a summit or worlds team they would have major issues missing practices so close to those events.

    That was my guess. Either a young JV or Junior High team.

    ICU confirms Level 4 or 5 for Junior Team and allows crossovers. See below for full details.

    We hope all is great with you! As a follow up to the 2017 ICU Junior World Championships discussions and questions previously circulated (re: Level 4.2, Level 3 or Level 4 on the lower division) from the ICU General Assembly (minutes enclosed*), please note that the ICU Technical Committee and Governing Council has agreed to move forward with Advanced / Level 4 for the lower JWC division in 2017.

    The reasons for the decision were as follows:
    -Level 3 presents an odd progression gap between Elite/Level 5 and Level 4 or Level 4.2
    -Level 4.2 is not necessarily needed (limitation on tumbling) because the ICU scoresheet already limits scoring on tumbling, and the “.2” could be confusing to many countries
    -Level 4 was more understandable as a progression between Elite/Level 5 and JWC Advanced/Level 4 (v. Level 4.2)
    (*2017 ICU AGM Minutes http://cheerunion.org.ismmedia.com/…/ICU_2016_General-Assem…)
