    Yes to all of this. A college that competes at uca isnt going to take a strong tumbler but weak stunter, imo.
    I feel like this is the biggest difference between the two, you could probably be on a team and not contribute as much to stunting if you have strong tumble skills or vise versa if on an nca team. But i cant see the likes of Bama, ucf, kentucky taking a guy who cant one man with extreme confidence.

    That might be true for the small handful of NCA teams who focus more on one weekend a year than actual game days (not meant to be a criticism), but for the most part, coaches expect guys to hold up girls at games for a heck of a lot longer than 4 counts. Most of the guys who have been at the NCA school my kids are at have zero experience and are former athletes in other sports. Their strength and value to the program is based around stunting and crowd leading and most will probably never tumble in the 4 years they are part of the college spirit program.

    Jerry is a stunter not a tumbler and very valued on both his NCA College team and all star team. I had to throw that in there. LOL

    I think what the poster meant and it’s been brought up before. EX: Almost any person from Kentucky blue squad could try out and probably make any NCA squad, Louisville was the example at the time but not every kid from Louisville can make Kentucky.


    Reason being is that Kentucky requires their cheerleaders to actually tumble and stunt, why most NCA school will take a kid who can stunt really well but with not tumbling skills and vice verse.


    ETA: My post isn’t a knock on any NCA squad.

    Yeah, I was just sharing one example of how important stunting can be. And Love Jerry!

    Who was the team that had the kid with all the bounce backs?

    Also, can we make it to 1000 posts?

    Also, singing the lyrics during your performance: yes or no?

    I was told — by some judges, not a coach — to stop doing it by my early teens because I was getting too old for it. So that’s just something that always stuck with me.

    But I also understand the almost compulsive, reflexive need to sing your lyrics during a performance.

    I’m curious if anyone else notices/cares about this.

    I tend to forget just how many Worlds divisions there are. I just saw a tweet with all of the Open/International NCA champions and my head hurt just going down the list. Ridiculous how many there are. That said - congrats to all the champions!

    Took a look at open large coed scores and Cali Coed had a raw score of 99.5 and Wildcats with a 99.3. Worlds will be VERY interesting!

    I normally don't pay much attention to the dance in most routines but Cali Coed's is the best I have seen in years.

    Beatles had a fall day 1 as well. Those scoresheets are insanely close to identical. That will be quite a show down at worlds.

    Finally got all the results/scores into the spreadsheet. Took longer than expected. I plan on adding more details to the Worlds divisions like deductions and such.
