    If anyone has any ideas of a better way to separate it out let me know. I couldn't think of how I wanted to do it lol. I'll probably add the Summit bids at some point, too.

    Curious!

    Where will the Y5 teams have competition this year (even if it is just one other team?) UCA and Summit?

    @littlestALLSTAR @DropAndRun ?

    MD Twisters does not have a youth 5 this year, too many kids aged off last season

    Quite a long way to travel and an expense to compete against no one. Sadly if this trend continues maybe the division will be phased out.

    Such sad small numbers. They are such exciting divisions to watch.

    Wondering if the introduction of Jr 5R has something to do with it?

    Or just the financial burden of so many travel comps in one season for younger kids leads gyms to make the decision to cut it?

    Financially, it is hard to convince families to finance NCA then UCA then turn around and do Summit. One has to go.

    I believe many programs aren't attending due to the crazy changes over the last few years. We just 'retired' but our gym was only taking 5s this year. 4 days long plus another weekend for minis (If remember correctly). That's an insane amount of school/work to miss for most people as well as gyms being closed for that amount of time? At a large gym, you tend to have a lot of siblings involved. That's hard when most go to 'regular' NCA then others go to mini NCA at another time. My guess is numbers will be way lower this year due to those changes.
    ETA- I can't type on my phone.

    Total numbers are right about the same for this year compared to last year. Just different teams than past years I guess.
