    Losing I do not have a problem with. It is more of the integrity of the sport. It is about teaching these kids to do things the right way and to lead by example.

    You are allowed 3 alternates that DID NOT compete at the competition where you received the bid. So yes, the two athletes you had would be able to compete at worlds if you listed them as your alternates on your paperwork. IF you did not list those two athletes as alternates on your paperwork, they would not be eligible to compete with you. At least that's how it's supposed to work.

    The exception to participants being at the qualifying event is the list of alternates. At bid giving events coaches are supposed to turn in a list of alternates and the kids on the list are eligible to for Worlds even though they did not participate at the qualifier. I assume this was put in place so athletes that are truly part of a team, but were injured and unable to compete at a qualifier, would still have the opportunity to compete with their team at Worlds.

    Is it possible that some people are taking illegal advantage because the rules are too hard to follow (or find for that matter) and they are not doing it on purpose? (And thanks McLovin, like I said, new to Worlds bid, but going for it this year and want to do it by the book).

    Possibly. But that is definitley not what I was referring to.

    The rules are listed clearly on the website and in the bid packet. It is not hard to find. Coaches who are striving for a Worlds bid should do the necessary research to know the rules. I do think it would be wise to have all coaches who are competing for a bid turn in a form signing off on the rules. It could be turned in with the roster and list of alternates.

    Please forgive me if I am dense, but WHERE on the website are the rules for worlds bids and the requirements? If you have never received a bid packet, than you would not have them either. Thank you.

    They are on there, just NOT easy to find. Go to travel, and look at the worlds travel packet, and in there you will find the Worlds rules.

    Not dense at all! :) I don't have my laptop with me to know if it is in another place as well, but I know that I have always looked in the bid packet that is posted online. We compete very early, and it was up in time last year.

    Here's the page with the travel info for Cheer and Dance.

    http://usasf.net/worlds/travel/

    There is a pdf file that you can download so you don't have to keep going back to the page. That's what I do.

    You are right, it is not hard to do and should be done.

    How long are event producer to keep rosters on file? Is there any time frame? I know where I work we must keep all records for 7 years.

    Very good question! I would have thought at least 3-5 years anyway.

    You are assuming that the rosters are being keept on file and are not lost or misplaced. Again is there any length of time that a company must keep a roster on file?

    I owned a company and worked for a company...I saw no hard and fast rules about length of time to keep rosters. Being a pack rat myself, we always kept ours and moved them into a storage place for safe keeping when things got too crowded.
