- Retired From Cheer
Too many divisions. This “everyone gets a trophy” thing and greed really took over the cheer world. Cheer will never be considered as an Olympic sport nor will the non cheer world take it seriously until this stops.
I wouldn't say "everyone gets a trophy" because that's not the case.
I don't think anyone at Worlds got an uncontested win in recent years (every division has a good few teams in it), but at the Summit/Regional Summit (levels 1-5 and J6), there were at least 1-3 divisions with only one team (and thus, Summit winners by default because no other teams against them.) Those are usually the same divisions that rarely have competition at other comps throughout the season. (ex: Open 5, Y5, etc.)
