Can someone explain to me the age differences between international and regular teams? I've read the wording and for some reason I cannot figure out how much older you can be on say an international junior team. Does the birthday deadline just extend from August to December of the same year?
What exactly is "club cheer"?
Like at a college? It's a team that isn't associated with the school's spirit department (doesn't cheer at games or make appearances like the school's team). Usually clubs are formed by students themselves. Think of it like any other school club. My college had a club team for just about every sport (soccer, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, cheer, etc). Some people will try to join/form a club cheer team if they just want to compete and don't necessarily want to cheer at games.
I saw Club listed on a comp schedule this weekend too. I think they were using it instead of the term "rec"
Club could be referring to the Global Club division in Intl, where there is a cheer before the routine portion. New division this year.
The differentiation is usually Rec you cheer for a sport for a full season as well as compete, Club you just compete. It's how they separate at NHSCC for Rec/club. To be rec you have to provide a notarized letter from club president that you cheer for a sport.
So a local YMCA team would be considered a club team?
Random question: I see Majors has juniors this year. If you're on both can you crossover from a J5 to a Senior team at Majors or do you have to pick one? (Ex: if I am on Rays Green and Orange.)
If they don't cheer for a sport and only compete than yes, club.
What you are saying makes sense. Unfortunately the EP's are not all on the same page yet. The comp we are going to this weekend has divisions listed as "performance rec" and "traditional rec" No "club" division is listed at all.
If a World's bid is passed down is the team who receives the bid tied to the roster they had when the event was held (competition in early December for example) or the roster when they receive the bid (late January in this case)?
I know that 5 Worlds athletes can crossover to a Summit team. But is that for each team - so 5 athletes from your Worlds team compete on a level 4 and a different 5 compete on a different level 4? So 10 worlds athletes from one team on two different Summit teams, if that makes sense?
It is 5 per Summit team. So what you mention would be fine.
I would think the roster they competed at the competition who gave them the bid.....
Separate names with a comma.
