This isn’t about talent. It’s about resources and access to them. And you can be the most talented hockey player, but without access to a rink and coaching and equipment, you aren’t making it to a pro league. Cheer is the same. It is a fact that there is a lack of readily available and financially accessible options in the vast majority of countries outside of Canada and the US. There is a lack of trained coaches because these countries are ‘cheer deserts’ so to speak. We also arent taking about a cost difference of $1500 vs $5000+ at the high school level for travel either.
