What about those that want to submit routines from this season for scoring purposes?
My team already has choreo done this season and we are just marking stunt sections so that division is perfect for us.

If you don’t like just don’t enter it. Simple.

@post2 if they don’t enter then they can’t win it can they.
They still have to pay to enter.
Also it’s impossible to get above 80 at BCA events.

As a parent I would be pretty cheesed off paying £15 just to get a score sheet for scoring purposes when you already know who's going to win. It's a no brainer for a team like Shadow to enter knowing that they are going to walk away with the money. They could even afford to give each athlete their money back and still make a profit. No point at all, sorry. Anyone entering using this format is just a sucker.

@post4, as an athlete I'd also be cheesed off about spending the money like this. I don't think I'd get anything out of a competition in this format.

It’s an optional competition to try and keep everyone’s spirits up. If your not happy then you don’t need to enter it. Don’t know why everyone’s hating on a comp that’s purely put on to give teams something to hope towards.

Also everyone commenting that shadow will win, you don’t even know if they have entered lmao.
Also, by these comments @post4 then I guess you also don’t actually let your child enter any events that zodiac would enter because there’s no way you could possibly hope to win grand champs over them??? It’s just the same.

If anything I see this comp being more solo/duos entries than anything.

Well done BCA for trying to keep the competition spirit alive. It’s more than any other EP has done.

For the sceptics out there, just keep doing exercise classes and taking parents money for half the training and I hope you can enter a comp in 2020 that’s not a virtual event, cos it’s not looking very likely is it now??

I think the idea of virtual is good but don’t believe videos from last season should be allowed.

That season is over now and everyone should at least be attempting to move forward.

The playing field would be much more level if the expectation was that everyone filmed at training sessions from this season. Seriously what athlete/parent is going to pay £15 to submit a video from last season to a comp! 😂😂😂

I think it should be judged on routines up to now minus stunts. It should be a new recording not one from a comp.

I think there will be quite a few teams using last seasons routines this season. Some only managed to attend 1 or 2 comps so makes sense.

It’s all well and good saying film from a training session but not everyone trains in a full sized facility with a full floor. So why shouldn’t those teams whose only video is from an event back in December/January get to enter?
People really need to get off their high horse and just let those who want to enter, enter!

Also pretty sure the info says that all videos must be from the 2019-2020 season. So any UK events that took place between September 2019-July2020... not sure about you all but that wasn’t that many and as lockdown was in March then most of the early events would be vids of very raw/unpolished routines. Most likely first time out for a lot of them for that season.
No Nationals happened for any EP. Only about a dozen regionals.

I think I saw that they are allowing videos on any size floor. So teams without a full size gym can still enter.

At least they are trying to do something, Its a bit of fun and the chance for kids to work towards something because I think we all know we arnt competing this year. What does it matter where they have been filmed, many teams are using the same routines anyway and keeping the same teams as much as possible. I agree the price is outrageous for what it is, £5 per athlete per routine would be something I would be happy to pay for this. It's a step in the direction of how comps will be this year.

@post11 do you really believe that £5 per athlete is going to cover judges wages or staff salaries?? Also there’s a cash prize of £1000.
That money doesn’t come from thin air so personally I think the £15 entry is actually justified.
Other than actually getting a full spring floor to compete on the basic logistics are still the same..
top quality judges, results announced, banners for all placings. Medals available.
Even £20 with a medal is still a lot less than we pay to actually enter a physical competition.
Especially bloody legacy and jamfest that can be around £45-50 entry fee...

A £40 entry fee that covers the building, all the staff (virtual comps wont need many plus no traveling for them) the lighting, the equipment, moving it and setting up/pulling down. Plus everything else I cant think off is justified at these comps. You can really see where they spend the extra few £s per kid at legacy for example.
For £5 you will get a lot more entries for a start and if you add up the kids and the routines they do in a programme it would soon mount up, your not having to employ the vast majority of staff that's needed at the events. No one has to travel, no setting up or pulling down. Running a virtual comp would be pretty cheap I would think and as much as I'm all for it, I think it's very expensive for what it is.

@post13 I agree! Some comps are only slightly more expensive to actually attend. I love the idea and fair play to BCA for trying but I do think it’s overpriced especially in the current climate with people being cautious with money. Hope it works really well for them and they prove everyone wrong

Even in the current climate BCA going above and beyond to give us hope.
£1000 cash prize is awesome considering they haven’t had any income for months.
I’m submitting teams from last season that could compete and videos of full outs from those that didn’t (we split teams for events). Plus extra solo/duos and possibly a non building from this season if we get finished in time.

Would love for in person events to go ahead but it’s prob looking very unlikely so virtual events will be way forward for many by looks of it.. it’s our #newnormal

It’s been postponed to end of January to allow for the anew lockdown. Really good choice tbh

Over 18s are allowed to train individually or part of them same household so would be allowed to tumble and get new skills.
Check out Sport Cheer England's post.

No one is supposed to have over 18s in gyms unless they are coaches so it shouldn't even matter if they have athletes over 18 training they arnt sticking to the rules
