im on a small coed team and we have been competing against large coed all year and still won, so exacuting, and hitting a high scoring routine is the same regardless if your small or large right? I mean wouldnt maxing out across the score sheet still be the same criteria? ( maybe Im wrong) but we never had a loss against a large, I didnt that the numbers made the difference. I could be wrong, but I am excited to see how we do in the Virtual Championship. Our gym has alot competing on it You must be a registered user to view images.

As I understand it, it's a ratio based scoresheet...like cheersport...so in theory yes. I think where you get into issues is in that bottom 10% of the scoresheet where you get overall effect and choreography which is totally subjective. If you with your small team absolutely kill your routine and only have 20 and go up against a team of 32 that absolutely kills their routine, large teams with more stunt groups that fill the floor better and can put up more "wow factor" pyros just because they have more people might pull ahead in that 10% which may be the same 10% that makes the difference. My daughters team crushed every large team they saw this year too, but the large teams had deduction issues that we didn't. I think the issue is when both teams kill it large ones have the advantage in stage presence. That's just my thought. If it were completely fair regardless of team members they wouldn't have split divisions to begin with.
I guess I see what your saying but jr coed 4 has competed all season against large teams stacked with 36 and we are small and they never split this division You must be a registered user to view images. but we have gone up against some pretty flawless level 4 coed teams and won, there have been days when our small team out scored sr 4's and level 5's ( for example look at Canam) I think we had one of the top scores for the comp, against all levels including level 5s. what would readlly make this online championship hard to win is if all level 4's competed against eachother all level 3's regardless of small gym, big gym, small or large division .. then the best of the best would really shine , would be really hard to win but the winners would have MEGA braggin rights
We're pretty much talking about the same division. My daughter was small j4. That team will be large coed next year even though it doesn't exist anymore, but i think what you're sAying is part of the reason that they got rid of the coed distinction, I don't think I saw that division split anywhere other than cheersport and a lot of times we'd have a coed collapse with large and small all girl jr4 just because there were not enough to split the multiple divisions.
They may be doing it the way you're talking about. There was a lot of inconsistency between large small coed and non etc through the 8 sights so you might just be right and they might be putting them all together period, which would be interesting. Good luck to you, our J4 did not win the all levels we attended so best of luck in that division. It's a good one!
Thank you, its very exciting , I love watching all the teams. I think at one time anyone who placed 1-3rd at all levels competed online, did that change? I wish Varsity would post videos now
Yes, this year they are only including the first place teams. And, it appears the videos won't be posted online in advance as they've done in previous years. I suppose we'll have to wait till May 4th and then they'll show the videos as part of the actual "virtual championship".
My daughter attended All Levels in Anaheim which is a two day event. They performed on both days. This was our third time attending this event and this year was very unlike prior years and people were confused. There was (and is) some confusion due to the lack of consistency across the events at the eight All Levels venues. And, a lot of confusion due to changes made from previous years. We also had a lot of confusion when it came to awards because of how they were split. As an example, Level 2 Small awards were seperate from Level 2 Large etc. so Grand Champs and All Levels winners couldn't be announced until after Level 2 Large awards had been given. Because this was unclear many members of the team had left by the time they made the announcement of the winners of All Levels (we had to wait a couple of hours). Everyone involved seemed confused but I think it was just growing pains and will hopefully be worked out for next year.
Oh that kind of stinks!! Sometimes someone who places in 3rd by like .10 and scored by different judges online can come take the grand win! I liked watching the extra teams too. Oh well guess I have to wait until next weekend.. to bad ill be in us finals
So does anyone know which teams made it as All-levels finalists?
Dazzle was ON all season, no doubt! They are such a strong team. I think all of CSAs teams are really good but I am probably a little biased since my daughter cheers there hahaha....and yeah very sad about missing out on those rings lol. Maybe next year!
is there a way to predict who is going to win this
Commme on lets get excited! I know cheer is all about level 5 but I cant wait for this! US Finals and this all in one weekend!
So excited for tomorrow night!
