    • Backless uniforms( not everyone is boobless)
    • Cheer twitters( I’m sorry but they just cause too much messiness, pettiness, and uncalled for drama...and not to mention they sometimes cyber bully)
    • The chocker style neck lines...I’m sorry but no.
    • The extra big poofy teased hair.
    • The uniforms that have 395939493 things going on and looks like it’s 20 different uniforms in one.
    • Cheerupdates attitude when someone asks a simple question.

    • Agree with everything you said about uniforms. Can we please tone it down? Your uniform does not need multiple cut outs, mesh, a chocker and sparkles everywhere.
    • Long socks. I know its TG's thing now but I just hate the look.
    • Giant hair. Again tone it down a little bit
    • that one plank stunt in lvl 5.
    • Spinning balls of death (probably never going to happen but a girl can dream)
    • "Music" that is just voice over after voice over.

    So much extra has been added to All Star that it feels like skills or skill growth for athletes is disappearing and routines are all about performance art. Feels like a theater or dance direction for the sport.

    Athletes landing tumbling so hunched over, they're millimeters away from breaking their nose on their knees.

    Folks walking on the mat intentionally being extra and doing things they don't organically do just to be "viral" or "cheer famous."

    Yes I know the first few people may have accidentally just become viral because someone noticed them but I see kids intentionally trying to be noticed.

    One of the MS coaches had to recently tell the kids "we walk pretty onto the mat, if you never dabbed or dropped it like it's hot before, we are not starting it now."

    $70 entrance fees. Let's cap it at $50, please, for two days for the bigger events; ie NCA Nationals. It was $35 a day at UCA this year.

    Entrance fee plus parking plus, plus, plus, when we’ve already paid and arm and a leg to get our kid on the mat in the first place. Very seriously, one of the venues we compete at doesn’t charge a parking fee for any other event all year, but let there be a Varsity run cheer competition, and it costs just to get on a 3/4 empty parking lot! Another was STP, and you were already paying for parking as part of the hotel, but to drive your kid up the hill instead of walking or taking an overcrowded bus cost $15 a car.

    Also, it’s 2018. Take credit cards for entrance fees already. When you can take them for the merchandise table, there is no excuse not to take them at the gate except for being ornery. Girl Scout moms now take credit cards for cookie tables, for crying out loud!!

    High entrance fees, or entrance fees for parents at all (Side note the EP for CP's last comp announced next season all 0-10, 65+, and military get in free!)
    Massive hair
    Standing and walking during performances. Sometimes people want to watch other teams not their own.

    Biggest things I want left in this season is the huge pony tails and unnecessary motions in stunts.

    I have always thought that companies need to provide 2 free entrance fees per athlete.

    Because mom/dad are paying $100 just to watch Suzy, like $45 to feed Suzy and themselves, and heaven forbid Suzy want a souvenir item. That is a $200 day.

    $200 is a utility bill, 1/4 of a mortgage, money toward another child's event, half of Suzy's private school payment this month.

    No point. Suzy's gym would have to pay more in comp fees which would be passed onto Suzy's parents' bill. :eek:

    Cheer “proms”, banquets, balls...essentially anything that means kids have to miss an extra day of school and parents need to spend another night on hotels and food. Not to mention the cost of a dress if you can’t find one to borrow.

    Worlds scheduled on a Sunday -Monday instead of Saturday-Sunday right at the start of the exam period for IB classes.

    Think I’m bitter about all the utter disregard for school?
