Smile and keep going.
For high school, don't touch it. Don't throw it or move it. Allstar, you can either throw it off or put it back on (only of you have nothing to do like running tumbling before or after a pass). I always tie my shoelaces SUPER tight because this has happened to me and I had to fly on my sock!
No you need to move it for high school, because if it's stepped/stunted/tumbled over, it's a deduction.
Shoes- Throw it. Off the stage.
Bow- Put it in your top and keep going.
Tie your shoe/ ponytail tighter? that might be beneficial . . .
Oh! Ha I thought you got one of someone touched it! Gotcha!
DO NOT try to throw a bow off stage. It will fly two feet and still be in the way. Also, do not put the ponytail holder on your wrist, then it's jewelery and you may get a deduction. As previously stated, stuff it down your top and keep going
Also dont take the other show off, its a deduction if you take it off.
I'm sure we all learned that at Worlds this year!
everybody's pretty much said everything, but with the bow, my old coaches always told us that if there's one fallen out and you're hidden enough to pick it up, or can smoothly do it without making it obvious, then pick it up and stuff it in your skirt.
I cannot tell you the countless numbers of pictures we would find at competitions where there were professional photographers of me with a bow sticking out of my skirt because some girl did a janky job of tying her bow in. like, tie it through your hair bands if you don't think it'll stay. I mean come on.
I still dont understand the logic of taking the other shoe off...
its always the cheerleader wearing socks that arent white that loses their shoes
Feeling uneven in your tumbling?
i have lucky socks taht I have to compete in, one is bright blue and the other is hot pink. I stuff them down in my shoes so you can't see, but thats something that would happen to me.
Also, semi related. At Jamz nationals this year, I tried to compete in little no show socks (NOT my lucky socks, and we dropped a stunt that day) and they were too slippery so I took them off in the warm up room and just threw them away...
I would sit down and pout. Then flag down your coach and tell her to stop the music so you can get yourself together.
I would talk with your coach to see what he/she wants you to do in that situation. It is also probably a good idea for him/her to have this discussion with the entire team just to make sure that everyone knows what to do. You never know when things like this are going to happen, and it never hurts to be prepared. You must be a registered user to view images.

If you're one of my athletes, run. Because I am going to flip out when I find you. j/k...well, sort of. You must be a registered user to view images.
I believe you do but if you move it, thats one deduction, whereas a shoe in the middle of the floor would probably get stepped over many times, so 1 deduction is better than like 10
For rec, at least, if you step on something (like a shoe, bow, sign, pom) Its like a 5 point deduction. We just kick it out of the way, but make it look like nothing. Don't make it too obvious.
Just tie your laces EXTRA TIGHT. Triple knot your bows. My coach in like 2008 told us to get black zip-ties if you're really concerned about it, and tip zie your hair tie to your bow's hair tie. I've never tried it, since i've never had problems with it falling out, because we hair spray our hair and bow, so it can't move.
