    Same. Any type of glitter (makeup, spray etc) is banned here because apparently it's dangerous

    There are a few teams that hold onto the "cheer" tradition...
    "Stingray All Stars...one of a kind...national champions...one more time...go Rays!"
    "Spirit of Texas come on come let's go...national champions...we don't think we know...Go Spirit!"
    "Cheer Athletics...blue black and white...the best of the best...all right!"

    I know they pretty much drop them from their Worlds teams but cp had a cheer on both Bobcats and her time at SOT.
    Front spots are out but "stunt screamers" are in. I do not miss glitter makeup, not only was it a mess but a pain the arse to get off. I agree that single passes are dying in favor of synchro passes. I like both but nothing beats a really good last pass.

    I miss the creativity. I know some teams still show some creativity in their routines, but for the most part, everyone seems to be doing the same things. Whenever I watch main stunt sequences now, I see some sort of full up, a couple tick tocks, and a double down, and it all looks very similar. I remember when everything was very creative because doing things like tick tocks and full ups were practically unheard of and doing a straight up heel stretch was still something to cheer about. I like looking back at videos from 2009 or before because those routines were all entertaining since they were all different from one another.

    I miss all the creativity routines used to have back before 2011...everyone can count on what skills are going to be done to meet the score sheets.

    Cheers in routines....I miss that way too much! Even when you're out of breath but you still find the air needed to yell the cheer in the routine...it just amped up the adrenaline!

    The amount of janky motions I see, even on Worlds teams, is awful. :banghead: :cow:

    Have you ever got glitter in your eye? It hurts so bad...I see how it's dangerous, especially if it falls in while your stunting!

    My CP6 was on a half year team last season, and the coaches decided to let the girls wear glitter if they wanted. CP6 was crying about having something in her eyes, and CP10 said "Oh, that's just a glitter ball. You'll get used to it" :confused:

    Jump sequences. They are still there of course, but go look at some early-mid 2000's routines. Jump sequences were multiple 8 counts long and involved choreography, level and formation changes and ripples. Now most teams do the basic 3 or 4 jumps to tumbling to max out and move on in an attempt to fit the most in the 2:30.

    Music.

    Every team's "music" just sounds like a giant voice over, nowadays.

    I completely agree. My team I cross competed for two years ago did 11 jumps in our jump section, and every team thought it was crazy... It's called jump "section" for a reason...
