    Is he still ineligible? I know he was at UCA and every athlete on Beatles got paid for hitting their routine.

    He’s the 62017 reference line. So he’s supposedly still banned. They can’t keep him from attending as a dad but he’s not supposed to be doing coach or owner things.

    I was recently following a situation in MO in which a dance coach was FIRED due to racism and basically bullying only Black dancer on team.

    Stipulations of her removal stated that she could not coach the dance team or attend dance team events.

    LOOPHOLE: She has been found to be attending events anyway and they can't say anything because she is allowed to (for example) be in the stands at a game. She is technically not coaching. Annoying.

    Maybe this is the same situation (ex: thumbing nose at the rule and saying "but I'm not COACHING SO you can't do anything. I'm allowed to just BE HERE.)

    Why would you even want to show your face at an event after being fired for something like that? She must be a real piece of work.

    Let's be real. Scott appears (APPEARS) to be backstage, coaching and going about his everyday life as the owner of Rockstar. Nothing has changed, and nobody gives a darn. His ties to Varsity mean he will never be held accountable in the way a small gym owner would be.

    Note: I worked for Scott for years at WSF and thought he was nothing but nice. He had great ideas, and knows cheer. This is nothing on him personally, because I have nothing negative to say about him.

    BUT, why have punishment if you aren't going to enforce it? I would rather USASF just say "we don't care" rather than pretend like they do. They want Rockstar money at Varsity events, and that trumps all.

    How does one tell which gym/owner it is associated with a listed offense?

    The lists of sanctions don’t identify the program, or the coach/owner. So I’m also pretty curious. It kind of seems like USASF is relying on the honor system for any sanctions outside of fines. I’m sure they take the fines right away.

    I think you just have to connect the dots between disciplinary reports, behavior, and rumours.

    The fact that it all is not public knowledge is also baffling. If I'm going to join a gym, I want to know if there have been issues with USASF, but god forbid we hold gyms accountable. :confused:

    Exactly.
    In some cases sure. But I’m thinking it is a pretty clear that gyms don’t actually have to be accountable for their violations this way.
