    What is with the chanting 1-3-5-7 during routines? It's been a minute since we have done this and I noticed at Encore that instead of hit-hit-hit-pull people were chanting counts. Why?

    It's been a thing for pyramids for a while now, especially CA has been doing it as long as I can remember. Never heard it for other parts of a routine though.

    I heard it on the videos from one of the Canadian comps that was in the area recently. All is fine - until they're on the wrong count :p

    Reminds me of when my daughter was on minis and we all counted because they actually didn't know the counts or the routine very well...

    Question, Can a d2 team compete d1 if they choose (i think so?) And if so, does that change if one team in the program has a d2 bid? thanks

    A D2 gym can choose to be D1 (for a season), but a D1 cannot choose to be D2. I don't believe a team can simply choose to compete "up" at a single event.

    Thank you, that is what I was wondering. Was looking at a few competition schedules and noticed one gym competing at both events is listed as D1 for one and D2 for the other. Probably a mistake in the schedule or typo, but will know for sure when the event happens.

    Some comps will bump you to D1 (not separate) if there is not any competition or not enough competition (according to their specific competition guidelines) to compete against in your d2 category. Last year d2 small senior r5 teams had to compete as d1 at NCA.

    I know Here we have a team that already has their paid bid In d2 so have chosen to compete d1 as there is more competition in their division.

    Before this year we were under 125 members but have always competed D1, except for one comp.

    Interesting. I thought that once you declare D1 or D1, you have to remain that designation for the entire season.

    The event in question where they are "out of division" is huge, for sure enough competition to remain D2.
    I am confused too.

    What is interesting is in the example you mention they already have a paid to d2, would they (could they) accept another? I really didn't think you could compete at D1 and D2 Summit?
    Of course not :)
