    Have you always wished there was a time that you could meet and chat with some of Allstar cheer’s industry leaders? What about meet some of the USASF's staff and let them know what you'd like to see for the future? Or maybe you'd like to just meet other parents and share stories? Then this is the event for you!
    Meet the USASF - Parent Action Committee (PAC) at CHEERSPORT, Friday, February 15th from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM at the GWCC to do just that. We have many special guests attending that will be there to listen to input, answer questions, and to generally have a great time. Are you curious about who the special guests will be? Over the next week we will reveal 1 or 2 each day but to start things off….
    We have our very own industry rule guru Les Stella (Vice President of Rules, USASF) there to answer your burning questions regarding all things rules past, present, and future. In addition we have the coach that everyone loves, Happy Hooper (Owner, The ACE Cheer Company, USASF Board Member) to let us all know how he juggles all those locations and athletes all while being a USASF Board Member.
    Refreshments will be served. Please reply if you plan to attend or inbox CharlotteASMom with any questions. Look forward to seeing you there!

    We've already announced Les Stella (Vice President of Rules, USASF) and Happy Hooper (Owner, The ACE Cheer Company, USASF Board Member) will attend and be available to answer your questions.

    Today we'd like to announce Steve Peterson (Vice-President of Event and Corporate Alliances, USASF) will attend! Ever wonder why the USASF makes some of the decisons they do or wonder what their vision is for the future. Then Steve is the one to ask!
    We are also thrilled that Kyle Bright (Head Coach - The Stingray Allstars, Regional Advisory Board, USASF) will join us as well! Now is your time to pick Kyle's brain about the magic potion Rays uses to perfect their jumps. He also loves to talk about the industry and has great ideas about where it should be headed.

    Look for more special guest announcements tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

    Today we'd like to annouce that Orson Sykes (Owner and Director, Twist and Shout) will attend and give us all insight into how he continues as a power house gym all while keeping a conservative environment within the program. Orson can only stay with us for the first hour so make sure you get there early to meet him!

    Also, we are thrilled to have Glenda Broderick (Southeast Regional Director, USASF) attend the "Meet and Greet" as well. Glenda will be able to give us some insight into the workings of the highly competitive Southeast region and how these needs are met by the USASF.

    It's CHEERSPORT week! Time to start packing and getting your schedule ready. Hope you have the "Meet and Greet" sponsored by the USASF - Parent Action Committee (PAC) on your schedule for Friday, February 15, 2013 from 7-8:30 at the GWCC (specific location will be announced in the next 1-2 days).

    We've announced the following special guests that will be there to talk to YOU, the Allstar parents about anything cheer:

    Les Stella (Vice President of Rules, USASF)
    Happy Hooper (Owner, The ACE Cheer Company, USASF Board Member)
    Steve Peterson (Vice-President of Event and Corporate Alliances, USASF)
    Kyle Bright (Head Coach - The Stingray Allstars, Regional Advisory Board, USASF)
    Orson Sykes (Owner and Director, Twist and Shout) - Only From 7-8
    Glenda Broderick (Southeast Regional Director, USASF)

    Today we'd like to announce two Allstar Gym Directors that currently manage the longest running Allstar programs in the industry.

    Anna Love Fodel (Co-Owner, Allstar Director, Greensboro Allstar Cheerleading) will give us the unique perspective on what it takes to run a smaller sized program within a hugely competitive market. As best as we have been able to determine, Greensboro Allstar Cheerleading is THE longest running Allstar program at over 23 years.

    Also joining us, with the distinction of being the Director of the second longest running program is Leigh Barger (Director, Charlotte Allstar Cheerleading). Leigh will be able to give us insight into how the program has been able to adapt within the industry over the past 23 years all while keeping a conservative approach within the gym.

    Hope to see you there!

    Additionally, Irazmi Perez (Member Services Specialist, USASF) will join us and be available to answer questions about the relationships between USASF and their members. Irazmi will be the 6th USASF affiliated guest attending. Please take advantage of this opportunity to speak with your USASF reps personally!

    Last but certainly not least, Sean Timmons (Coach, World Cup) will join us. Sean coaches Electra, Starlites, Cosmic Rays and Odyssey and can give us the inside look into World Cup inner workings.

    Over the last nine years that I've been following Allstar cheerleading, I've seen a lot of comments and posts from parents inquiring about the inner working of the industry.
    What's the purpose of certain rule changes? Are we a sport and do we want to be? Why do certain gyms excel at jumps while others excel at stunts? Does a small gym have the same influence in the industry as a large one? Why or should we be concerned with image? What does the USASF and our gym want from me as a parent? etc. etc. etc.

    There are many people over the years that have pushed for parents to have more of a voice within the Allstar cheer world and to get direct answers to these type questions. Tomorrow is the USASF-PAC's biggest step yet in that direction!

    We have 10 industry leaders (7 of which are USASF affiliated) making themselves available to you the PARENTS for one-on-one conversation. They are prepared for positive suggestions, tough questions, or to just meet a lot of great people! Please take advantage of this amazing opportunity and come join us. Worst case you get a snack and drink on your way to the arenas!! I hope to see you there!

    The "Meet and Greet" will be Friday, February 15, 2013 at the GWCC in Room B217 from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM. This area is called Maple Point at the GWCC and is at the top of the escalators that lead to Arena B5.

    Les Stella (Vice President of Rules, USASF)
    Happy Hooper (Owner, The ACE Cheer Company, USASF Board Member)
    Steve Peterson (Vice-President of Event and Corporate Alliances, USASF)
