    Wasn’t even thinking about them. Yes two teams shared the same division. And being a world’s team they would have competed against each other at large national comps.

    They were in the north suburbs of Houston. Had been competing D2 for the past 2 seasons.

    Pretty sure salem is "Bens gym", and they share kids with kville, i.e kids being on legacy(salem) and say coed elite(kville). And from what I remember, CSP was pretty involved with the charlotte gym as well, but maybe has less to do with it now(?). I for sure remember her being very hands on with lady elite when they moved to charlotte, and also in the beginning with monarchs.

    Cheer Destiny is closing their Lake Bluff Illinois location, but will continue running teams out of their Chicago location.

    They were down to, like, 3 teams last season. A lot of people moved to WE & PA prior to last season since it’s located in between them. The ones that moved to my CP’s gym claimed issues with coaching & management style, but that’s just from their POV and I don’t know anything first hand.

    There's a new gym in Northern California, I found it on Robert Scianna's Instagram page (he's their choreographer). Petaluma area I think, the story is gone so I don't know the name.

    I saw a screenshot of an email they sent out to parents but I can’t find it. IIRC it had something to do with not renewing the franchise agreement/lease or so. They also moved their north Tampa gym more north east to Wesley Chapel (now if only I could get my little cousin that lives 2.4 miles away interested in cheer).

    I am really really out of the cheer loop but there have been numerous Facebook posts of people that are friends of my friends that have said the gym has closed. I do know one of the coaches is now coaching at Top Gun Orlando - and I believe a few of the athletes have gone there also. If I had to guess the reason for the closing is due to low numbers but that is only a guess. My daughter was part of that gym for a few years when they were Cheer Corp- then they became Brandon Orlando. I wish them well in their next endeavor.

    Oh no! That's so sad. Vizion had some of the BEST technique out there I've seen in such a long time.

    Are there many programs in Michigan?

    Yes there are a bunch I’m not sure of the distancing though from their location. I haven’t seen an official announcement from them but there had been rumors and I saw a confirmation from a parent online saying they just didn’t get the numbers at tryouts to keep the doors open. So sad they were my favorite MI program! I used to always be at competitions with them and I loved watching them!
