    Are the invitations solely at the discretion of the Majors? Curious. I'm not too familiar with Fire and Ice but saw they were MAG last year.


    ETA: @mstealtoyou saw they got their bid 1/19 last year, full paid. They apparently didn't make finals because they're not listed in the top ten results for usasf.

    Could it maybe mean only 5 other gyms invited? As in, say Cheetahs are invited, they'd go under the CA banner already established from Panthers, and if say Cali Coed was invited they'd get a new banner for all Cali teams.

    That's a good thought. Pretty sure that's how they listed them last year, one banner per gym.

    They received a full paid bid at Jamfest SuperNationals last season and were also grand champions of the competition, hence their bid to the majors. This was the case with GBE Lime last season as well

    They did. But this year they announced the division as Senior All girl and the teams are not all large senior so I assumed there would only be one all girl division with small, medium and large combined. Guess we will have to see!

    Last year they had senior all girl (combo of large and medium) and small all girl. F5 competed in senior all girl as a medium team. Not saying I know that's the case this year, but it could be.

    I wish they would have the medium coed division. It's so competitive and could be a great addition. So many talented teams to choose from

    Medium All Girl. Full Paid at Jamfest Super Nationals. Last place in Semi's with 224 (highest was F5 283).

    ETA: Just watched a video of them on my On Demand thingy, they had really good skills they just had a really rough performance, Had 1 stunt fall, 1 tumble bust, 1 oob, and a stunt bobble.

    Doesn't the grand champ level 5 from the previous years Supernationals get an automatic invite to the majors? I could be making that up but I swear I kept hearing them say it last year and think it's possible Fire & Ice was that team.

    Just saw CU's tweet about F5 going now...
    What, did they just randomly decide yesterday that they'd go? Weird that the Majors would let them....

    I don't think that's weird at all! F5 has a huge fan base they bring to the table and those people will buy tickets, food and merchandise while waiting to watch F5 perform! That team actually makes a lot of sense!
