I’m sorry but it has to be said

Why are RSD posting saying they would be 7th in the world had they not got deducted ? That’s like Finland saying they are second in the world cause that’s what they got day 1? When Infact they finished in 5th?

They don’t know what would have happened Day 2?

They should know better than anyone they placed 9th one day at USASF and finished 11th. ??

It’s really quite embarrassing

I think it's regarding icu! As if you don't have enough athletes they give you a deduction so before the deduction that's what they would have placed !

They can’t claim to be 7th In the world when they didn’t compete day 2 to actually know where they would have placed ? Anything can happen on day 2 and the entrie division flipped order so how can they claim to be 7th when they were not a part of it to know

It’s silly because they know they get a deduction every single year, so I don’t know why they act like it’s a shock with “unfortunately”. It’s not unfortunate, they know they aren’t following a very specific and easy to understand rule.

They should just celebrate that in silence if they, in their own minds, know they’d have scored above a certain team. It’s not something to celebrate when you get an infraction for your country year-on-year. And as for “being a small country and not having enough dancers”, I’m sure they’d have juniors to use for a true “Team Wales Senior Pom” if they didn’t use the Leading Ladies routine and girls. It’s a conscious choice to not put any effort to being “team wales” so it is annoying to see them trying to act like they deserved better.

Agree with everything said above however should it not be sportcheer Wales now stepping in and putting a stop to the constant rule breaking ? It looks really bad on their country that they cannot follow one simple rule and have now continuously broken it? There lots of country’s I’m sure that struggle to make the number requirements and more than likely have to put less experienced dancers on the floor but if that’s what is required then you do it? They are literally giving the rule book the finger up !

I also think it is poor, saying 'we like a little warm up at ICU before dance worlds', it makes it seem like ICU is not important and I find it quite insulting, a lot of people would welcome the opportunity, in the few years I have been going to worlds it has been the same with RSD at ICU - stick to the rules, and I also agree,someone should be stepping in and questions this as it is constant and blatant and as the above post said - it is like giving a finger to the rule book and also every other country who go - give it to someone else who will value it for what it is and stick to the rules!

so you’re all talking bad about them but yet you still went on facebook, read all their posts and then came on here where you know it’s anonymous so you can say whatever and no one will find out who you are. if you have an issue with how they handled the situation then message them instead of talking about them on an anonymous website

Do you have to pay to enter ICU? If so how much? Because I feel like if icu is expensive then it’s just a huge amount of money to waste if you’re going to be disqualified/place last in anyway? I understand wanting to get rid of nerves but it seems an unnecessary waste of money if so

the thing is, everyone is literally quoting their facebook posts then coming on here to bitch about them, if you don’t like the way they do things then don’t go looking for their pages. facebook message them if you have an issue because you clearly know their names

you obviously are not aware of the procedures put in place so that Team Wales can be represented in as many divisions as possible at the ICU Worlds. If you were to do some actual research, you would find that last year SportCheer Wales implemented a new development plan for there to be Welsh representation at the ICU Worlds with best interest in mind. The plan states that "the representatives for team Wales dance categories will be a team that has received a USASF worlds bid." therefore RSD are eligible, as per SportCheer Wales plan, to be Team Wales Freestyle Pom and Freestyle Jazz because they had obtained a USASF worlds bid in both of those divisions. In addition to this it also states that " In cases where this could be more than one team, a decision will be made by impartial external judges to choose between teams that have expressed interest." however there has only ever been one welsh team in each as there is only one welsh pom and one welsh jazz team that attends the USASF worlds - which automatically puts rsd up for selection to represent team wales in those divisions.
Therefore regardless of whether it is a "warm up for dance worlds" or not, they are still the only Welsh pom team to attend with a USASF bid, so they are still able to dance at the ICU Worlds if they please. Following this point, the plan also states that if the team is not big enough, then ICU allows them to still compete but with a 35 point deduction, therefore they will be aware of the deduction prior to deciding whether or not to compete. Because there is no unified team wales freestyle pom team and no other welsh pom team, rsd are the automatic choice for the team wales pom team, should they choose to take it. As it states, the team needs to have a USASF bid, so by competing they are actually warming up for Dance Worlds as that is what they came to compete in, and ICU Worlds was an add on because of their eligibility in line with SportCheer Wales development plan.
So, there is option for other teams to represent if there comes a time when there is one, as another welsh team did in 2016 when RSD did not attend. It is also not breaking the rules, as ICU still allows them to compete. Finally, they do not get disqualified for competing, they just incur a large deduction to majorly reduce the likelihood of them qualifying for day 2, so they just don't qualify - and sometimes don't even place last! Yes they were not part of day 2 at ICU worlds because they were aware they had obtained such a large infraction, so they were justifying why they had not qualified and how they would have done if they had not qualified - just like when your favourite homegrown team says they "placed nth - but 1.5 points behind first!"
