    So this is my newbie post. I don't know if introductions are appropriate here but I am a mom of a newbie Competitive cheer athlete. We are in the last month of her first season and she is on a level 1 Prep team and we are hoping to make level 2 All Star team next year.........or whatever team will fit her best (those are my words not hers she wants level 2 lol) She started late as she is 11 years old now I guess that is my fault I should have gotten her involved earlier so she could be further on by now but I am very proud of all the progress she has made this year. She is even Athlete of the month at her gym this month :). I have not really done online open discussion boards like this with cheer in the past (I used to do competitive cheer when I was younger and even did stunt coaching before I got old :) ) So please excuse me in advance if I make a mistake on here. I am not even sure our gym even knows such a think as this board exists!!!! Well anyway that is us in a nutshell, I hope to learn more about how the "parent's seat" works in this sport!

    Thank you so here is a question...........what are all the "indicators" by some of the avatars? like yours says " Moderator" "Braket Winner" and " Video Curator" Also there seems to be some sort of status under the names like there is a lot of "I'm new. don't Hurt Me" which I imagine it probably says under mine? and like there are several that say "Slow your roll, Sparkle" and other things..........does it go by how much you post? or how long you have been a member?

    But thank you everyone for the warm welcome :).

    It is mostly based on number of posts/shimmies (likes). The banners that are also under the name are more for staff member titles or used as "prizes" for contests we have on here. There's been a few years where we've had a sort of superlative voting, so you may see some of those winners have their's under their name as well.

    The first rule of Fierce Board is don’t talk about Fierce Board. Lol. Just kidding, kind of.

    You’d be amazed at how many people know of the boards but don’t talk about it. Chances are there are others from your gym lurking around someplace so be careful of anything you say about your program. Sadly we do have the occasional tattle tale.

    Thanks for the warning. I should be good though I really do not have much to say bad about our program. I think it is well run for a small gym. I was thinking of suggesting the program director of the cheer part of our gym take a look at it.
