    In the interest of being factual, that decision was made with the the support of the KHSAA Board of Control and voted on on TUESDAY, not Monday. The official announcement was released either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday. It doesn't change the verbiage used.

    I just can't justify going through the process of fundraising, and paying, for something that is only going to happen if someone changes their mind and allows it to.

    As long as our tyrannical dictator governor is in office, I doubt the KHSAA commissioner will change his mind. I've never seen such an overblown reaction to something in my whole medical career.

    Here in CA... we are literally taking everything one day at a time. We are fundraising as planned, rolling with the punches and if it doesn’t happen then it doesn’t happen and if it does, great.
    CA is starting to overall drop in cases (thank goodness) but now other states are starting to significantly rise.
    Ill point back to a post from when we were discussing The CA no Sunday rule and I had stated the value of nationals would diminish if some states lost their representation at the event.
    There were responses to the tune of “no Sunday” would never happen in a state like KY and regardless of whatever happened in that state ,KY would find a way to go...but nobody bet on a World wide pandemic stopping them, did they? And if not KY... who will be spiking in a few weeks from now, or in a month?
    To put it simply- no nationals would NOT be the same without KY. It wouldn’t be the same without TN or CO... whoever...if they have been a state that has had consistent and at least some mildly successful representation at NHSCC, some value is lost.
    I had already told my kids to expect attendance to likely be a little lower this year and to be prepared for anything- the biggest thing they were bummed about was that they might not get to compete against and see as many awesome teams. (Not even the possibility that THEY, themselves could possibly not go)
    They love competing UCA because there’s so many fantastic teams and part of the fun is just being among great cheerleading...I noticed their value of the event was placed MORE heavily on the quality of their competitors. One girl even said “less competition means a better chance at winning” and the whole team responded with - it doesn’t mean as much if we don’t go against “such and such school”.., because they’re so goood every year. And “so what.. we want to know how we REALLY measure up, not how we are compared to who just happened to be able to go”..,,
    With that being said-
    I think There should be a strong consideration of pushing Nationals to April/May, if they can.... because you have the majority of teams who had very late tryouts or who will have a very late start to stunting.
    With a possible vaccine coming in the fall- your chances of some normalcy and getting higher attendance will just be better by then. If they don’t - it is what it is.
    USA Dance Nationals just pushed back their date to April so you never know.
    If not, it’s my hopes that this awful virus is gone quickly for everyone and we can carry on with some normalcy and we see everyone represented as much as possible in FL in Feb.
