    What do you think will be some of the trends to look out for in 2013? One that I can think of is squads performing a cheer at the beginning of the routine at the UCA College Nationals rather than in the middle of the routine. Any others that you can think of?

    The shift from 2 main stunts/sequences (IME/Elite) and a cheer stunt to the now popular 3 stunts/sequences (IME, Elite, Elite/IME) and a cheer stunt is one huge change across the board this year

    This isn't a change this year but I noticed over the past say 3-5 years cross tumbling has really been deemphisized. Did they change how points are awarded?
