    Basically the summit bid declaration sums it up... the EPs get to do what they want. ;)


    The Summit
    Highest scoring teams across each eligible level will be considered for paid and at large bids.
    An effort will be made to distribute bids to deserving teams across multiple levels and age groups.
    Dance Summit
    National Champions and 2nd place teams in qualifying Summit divisions are eligible for paid and at-large bids.
    D2 Summit
    Highest scoring teams across each eligible level will be considered for paid and at large bids.
    General (applies to all bid types)
    Bids will be awarded at the discretion of the tournament director taking into account the following criteria: Score, Sportsmanship, Level Distribution
    (cheer) and Division Distribution (dance).
    In an effort to most fairly award bids, the following metrics will also be taken into consideration:
    Percentage of Perfection within the levels
    Placement within the divisions
    Depth of divisions
    Depth of teams within levels
    Final distribution of bids across levels is dependent upon actual registrations and will be determined at the event.
    *This bid distribution procedure is subject to change at the discretion of the tournament director.

    I'm pretty upset about the errors that have been made as well. Varsity had my gym down as not accepting bids, even though I saw the bid sheet and we said we would accept any bid, so my j1 didn't get the bid. Two weeks later, we get contacted saying there was a mistake, and now we have a wildcard bid.

    The exact same thing happened last year, but we found out at the competition and it was for an at large bid.

    Bottom line, judges can do whatever they want and give to whoever they want. Now that it's done on Monday they don't have to listen to angry coaches either.

    We haven't had any issues with bids thus far.
    However especially this year we know getting the highest score doesn't mean anything. There is generally a difference across judging panels, some score harder so their highest scores are lower and other panels score higher so they have to review who would really earn it if they were judged by the same panel.

    I knew with the last bid announcement that though my daughters team was the highest score it didn't necessarily make them the best team. We were on the edge of our seats waiting and I was sad we weren't going to find out at the comp.
    But our gym said they will continue to throw summit watch parties on mondays.
    It was so amazing having so many of our teams there and celebrating with 3 other of our teams at the watch party that got AL or PD bids. It actually wasnt bad and an amazing experience. I kind of think I preferred it over being at the comp with her team. It was much better shared with everyone at the same time so it turned into a positive.

    Our gym did send out correspondence before hand to hopefully clear up any confusion about who may receive bids.

    That was sent out on Monday as a reminder ^^^

    And this was the Saturday night before^

    I truly love our owners and I think they are a huge reason we are so successful.
    Obviously I'm biased

    All the Vipers I've ever encountered were nothing but classy. The "Viper way" is working.

    So 4 of our teams got a summit bid 2 weeks ago.

    Small Junior 4- Paid
    Small youth 1- AL
    Small youth 2- AL
    Small youth 3- AL

    The remaining teams at our gym all got a summit bid tonight
    Large Junior 2- AL
    Large Junior 3- AL
    Large Senior 3- AL
    Small Senior 4- AL
    Small senior restricted 5- AL

    For the 3rd year in a row we are taking all eligible teams to the summit on an AL or Paid bid! We now have a few more comps to clean up on Paids and it's only December

    Fury Athletics from Pleasant Valley, Missouri has two bids this season!

    Our small junior 1 (the team I coach) got a D1 wildcard bid at our first competition in late November, and our large junior 2 got a D2 at large bid at America's Best Nationals this past weekend. We are so excited and so proud! 2/4 teams bid eligible have bids this season, and last year we had 2/7 bid eligible teams got bids, so we feel really great about where we are at even though our athlete numbers are lower than last year.

    I haven't paid attention to it before but does it seem like more people are accepting wild card bids? I feel like I'm the past many people would only accept at-larges or paid, but I am seeing more and more gyms accepting wild cards that I wouldn't expect.
