this is always drama. but i wanted to say before it even gets started that it is rumored that the cowboys have girls on their A team that is not old enough to be on there. their birthday fell after the deadline. so come competition, holden will bring this up.

Cheerleading is always drama. Is that really going to have a bearing on who wins? Kind of silly, dont you think?

I guess that you have that with every sport. I know we have done them all and there is always someone unhappy or making waves over some little something in everything that you kids do. I do have to say though, my daughter played Logan County All Girls Basketball League last year and we didn't have any of that.

I just thought you would like to know that moving girls up is now allowed. Originally it was said they could not until they realized some leagues could not compete without combining some B girls with A. If anyone has questions, they can ask the guy over the entire league(not Logan but all teams.) I think his name is Bobby Lasarde. Also I think the C-ville High coach is helping and is aware of girls being allowed to move up. So before it gets started, it does not matter if a girl moves up. So to put rumors aside, I think Logan does have one girl who barely missed the deadline. She is approved and I don't think one child will make or break a competition. Eventually these girls all end up together so I wish it would not be so tense. We should all hope Holden and Logan win because they all go to Logan Middle and Logan High. These girls are probably all friends at school and the parents are the ones making a big deal about it. So I hope all teams do well and have a safe and fun competition. Go Holden and Logan!!! We're all in this together.

yeah logan says due to insurance or something. but the one girl your talking about is one of the best tumblers on the cowboys squad, so it might make a difference. just wait and see.

I think you are all mistaken about moving girls up. I dont think you can move a girl up just because you want to. I think the only way a girl can move up to another team is if a squad doesnt have enough girls to compete. I'm not sure but i think this is hove it works.

I was at the meeting, and Bobby Basdrae, said you can move a girl up only if you do not have enough
on your squad to make competion. The minimum is 8 and the max is 13. So if I was you and you
have over 8 girls competing then I would ask Bobby about this. I for one dont have the A-team but I As a coach would wonder Why she would
be the only one moving up. From what I can gather
Logan does not have a B-team they orginally did but it folded or something. Why is she the only one that you guys picked? That is going to be your biggest complaint.

the girl they are talking about has been on the A team from the beginning, even when there was a B team.......and that squad has tons of girls so they didnt need her.

Definitely check this out before i assume. i was at that meeting as well, and i don't recall it being said that a girl can move up just to move up. it was said that the different squads have different insurance which falls by the girls' age. If the girl is 9 when it started, but she was on A team, then she should be moved down to B because of that reason. Check all this out before it's too late. Better to be safe than sorry.

Why was this girl allowed to be on the A team?
We had several girls who wanted to move up and 3 of them only missed the deadline by a few days, one of them only 1. We were told by Bobby Basdrae
(dont know if i spelled his last name correct." "Due to being on different Insurance they CANNOT MOVE UP." Why was this girl from Logan. Because the girls that wanted to move up
would have made my squad a much better squad to
compete with in competition.

So with that said and you know why. Yes
If she cheers in competition I will complain if you have more than 8. Sorry, but that is the rules and EVERYONE should have to play by the same rules no exceptions to no squad. If it was another squad you know you would do the same thing. Is there any other girls on the b-team that wish to be on the A-team? Also, bobby said the c-team could move up because, they are on the same insurance. but "THEY COULD NOT PARTICIPATE IN COMPETITION." Is this not the rule. If I am wrong I would Love to know cause they are a few girls from the other squads I would love to have on my sqaud to help out. LOL

my lil girl wanted to move up to the A-team and was told NO she was not allowed. Now we dont even know about competition. So as a parent on the Logan squad how is this fair to my little girl. This just goes to show u that you only pick the ones you want. This little girl you are referring to is a great athlete. Can tumble like no one else. So yes that is why she is the only one. Correct me if I am wrong. From what I understand you recieve lots of points for tumbling. Also, their is several other parents not happy with this also and would love to move their girls up. They just cant tumble as good. Correct.

i agree mama, it wasnt fair. when the B team folded none of those girls were asked to be on the A team. They just let them all fold. The A team has almost 20 girls. But from day one, that little girl was on the A team for some reason, wonder what that reason was.....lol

Just to let you know the FACTS....This little girl cheered for the A-Team last year; therefore she must cheer on the A-team this year. The midget league states that once a girl moves up she can NOT move down. The midget league is a corporation with a board and these are legal and binding laws of the coroporation. They can not be changed by Logan, C'ville or anyone else. Only the board can makes these changes. Another FACT: she does NOT tumble at all. Bobby has already approved her cheering on the Logan A-Team.

Oh my goodness.

Just look at yourselves.These are children.These are girls that are supposed to be making friends and having fun.The main focus shouldnt be on competition.The main focus should be having fun and cheering at ballgames and just enjoying it. There is so much in life to be serious about.Let them enjoy their youth and dont put this kind of pressure on them.They are going to have enough of that in their life.

Better yet, stop living through your kids.

I would bet anything that your girls just want to have fun and sure winning is nice but at this point in their life it should be fun. I am shocked and amazed by all of this drama over a midget league cheer competition. No I take that back I am astounded and sickened by your behavior.

I know for 100% this girl is not tumbling. I think you have the girls mixed up. The best tumbler is Janie Walsh and she is the correct age. Get your facts straight. The girl they are talking about has a tumbling block and is not in any stunts. 100% FACT! lol
