    Another question...if the EP split the divisions up (mini 1A, mini 1B, etc.) do they take the winner of each group, or high score from the combined mini 1. What if they weren't the same judging panels?

    Something else I think wasn't thought through. I would assume they're taking the top score but I'll bet those are rarely the same judging panels.

    mannn, sad for my gym. (Carolina Spirit Athletics.) we are not attending this year. Our youth 2 won the online championship last season and the season before (but they were considered small gym that year.)(I wasn't with the gym then.). Now all that talent has gone up to our 2 year underfeated J3 team. wahhhh :confused:

    They should've gone, that J3 was the real deal. They would've won it all. I said that back at the sweetheart classic.

    @alexamarysouza I saw their Carolina Spirit J3 at Battle Under The Big Top and I instantly became a fan! I will love to see them go J4 next season.

    Just great, now how am I going to explain to smaller gyms that when they won All Levels & go around telling everyone they meet that they won WORLDS that if they actually won worlds they'd be eventually flashing a ring on their finger and not a US Finals Jacket.

    Shoot. :confused:

    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 :)

    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 :( 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
