    This. I think if we’ll see growth in any division, it’ll be in The addition of a few extra NT teams, but really, I think it’s just more teams switching divisions rather than creating new teams. There just aren’t that many open aged athletes out there

    we now open 5 instead of international coed 5............dont know what the heck is really the difference except its scored differently and we are up for more than 1 FP paid I think by declaration, which I hate, anyway.. So why the new division?

    Top 10 will move on to finals at worlds instead of top 3 per country. Under USASF instead of IASF. Large coed has different limits on number of boys. Tumbling is weighted more heavily.

    On the preliminary schedule, the international open teams don’t seem to have a U.S. or Canadian Trials anymore... so I’m guessing everyone competes at semi-finals and top 3 per country advance to finals?

    I liked the idea of the top teams from the U.S. and Canadian trials advancing to semi-finals, because that at least gave teams who placed 4th - 10th a chance to perform twice.

    My understanding is Intl Coed is IASF, their score sheets, percentages and top 3 from each country go to finals. Open 5 is USASF and follows those scoresheets, percentages and top 10 make finals. Basically Senior divisions, but with no age limit of 18 - you can be older than a super senior and still be on the team

    Similar to Int'l Open in terms of division sizes/ages, but under USASF instead of IASF like the international divisions are. The last few posts have broken down the other differences.

    I agree that I don't there there will be many additional teams due to the new divisions, but I have seen a huge shift in gyms fielding a Senior Open team instead of a senior team because of all of the open aged athletes. It seems there are less people coming in to this sport and in many cases, the only way gyms are able to field a Worlds team is to add aged out seniors and move to the Open division.

    Were any bids added internationally? If there aren't more bid opportunities, I doubt the international representation will increase just because they added divisions. Some division shifting will take place, and with less teams per division it will be easier to be a "world champion" but numbers won't be increasing. As @quitthedrama said the sport isn't growing in the United States. We've priced everyone out.

    I’m not sure about the US, but all competitions in Canada were given 1 extra bid specifically for NT teams only. They’re also not eligible for the old ‘regular’ bids, AL or paid. They can only qualify for the NT bids. I do know that Cheer for the Cure in Ont back in Dec handed out 12 bids whereas last year they only had 9, so some competitions up here are getting more bids, and we now have 2 FP bid in Canada. Woo!!

    Yes, the US has those at every comp (or at least just about every comp), too. I believe that bid can also go to a Global team.

    Individual comps decide if they will let global teams compete for regular bids or put them in with NT teams for that one bid. I've seen some comps give paid bids to global teams and others say the global and NT have to compete for the one bid. There is no discernible pattern to it at all lol

    Did they say why not? All the other international divisions are worlds divisions.

    There is no NT 6 this year. Only NT 5 was introduced. NT 6 is on the schedule for next season, though I suppose it’lol be NT 7 as the levels are changing too

    Thankfully I don't think the new divisions are going to extend the weekend TOO much because they're new?


    Ex: Open NT 5 ALL Girl CAN'T have more than like 4-6 teams at this point because I don't know if many fielded them this year. How many are there that we know of? 3? (I know Cheer Sport and CEA have one.)

    Open 5 is probably larger but not massive at this point.
