    I have not read the whole thread, so apologize if this was already discussed. Is there a way to know ahead of time if your CP's team won a Summit bid? Are Coaches notified prior to the TV announcement? We would love to plan a reveal party, but only if they won.

    The only way to know is by watching the feed. Coaches aren't told ahead of time.

    Same, I would love to have a watch party but only if we are getting a bid. Otherwise it may be awkward lol

    I think the whole bid reveal thing is awkward, and I wish they'd go back to the old way.

    Thank you so much!! I'm so excited my daughters team got paid! And that our 3 youth teams all got an AL. I can't believe we took 4/5 bids at this comp. We have another bid comp in two weeks so everyone is hoping for bids and upgrades for the AL! This is such an amazing feeling!

    I'm new here, but I have to say I hate the way the new bids are revealed. I have a daughter on a SS5 team and also a daughter on a Y1. We've been doing All Star Cheer for 6 years and love having that adrenaline and excitement when any win is achieved, 1st place, grand champs, summit bid, etc. Having to wait, potentially not be with your team is really taking that thrill away from the kids excitement on stage and living that moment. Parents too. They are just as excited as the athletes.

    My understanding was this was to alleviate errors, etc. During the reveal, Our gym received a WC bid at the first competition of the season. We competed again a month later, and the same team received a 2nd WC bid at the reveal??? Clearly, this was an error. It took away from the team that was supposed to get it as well as made us all shake our heads and think those in charge of this competition had no idea what they were doing. In addition, we just noticed that 2nd Summit WC bid our team got was ten given to a D2 team that competed??? How is that possible? This was a D1 Summit bid - comp had 3 WC bids for D1 and 1 WC bid for D2.

    In regards to your last point, D2 teams can go to the D1 summit. Just not the other way around.

    Yes, I understand that. We are a D1 gym, our team received a 2nd D1 WC bid in error. That bid was then apparently 'passed down' to a D2 team to attend the D2 Summit. Assuming they can do what they want, but that D1 bid that should have gone to a team that competed D1. There was only 1 D2 WC bid allocated for this comp, but 2 D2 bids were given which means one less deserving team from the D1 division will get a bid.
