Do they also pay competition fess if they never compete?
So is it true then that all 18 and younger divisions are going to full top? I did notice your new SR team tops were full topsIn theory, Plano teams are named after actual cats (Tigers, Panthers, Jags, Cheetahs, ..). However, we ran out of "good" cat names a long time ago and started using anything "cat" related-ish. "Thundercats" is a better team name that "domestic short haired cat" or "margays".
The theme concept wasn't originally really a thing beyond just a general "cat" Around 6 years ago when we opened an expansion gym, we decided that the new locations would start having a more specific theme for their cat names and try to use that in the branding.
Side note: I used to be fairly hard-core about the rules for names, where each one had to be spelled certain way ("cats" vs "katz", etc.), but as we grew to have 100+ teams, I grew to care less as long as the kids liked it.
RE: uniforms - Different gyms/age groups/teams are on different uniform schedules. We typically use a uniform 3-4 years before coming up with a new design. To be honest, I don't remember which years many of the uniforms were initially released, but I think the newer ones are going towards the new rule and some of the older ones are still half tops.
Can't answer the first part, but I know that Plano non-worlds senior teams have had full tops for a good amount of time now, at least back to around 2013/2014 or so at the latest.So is it true then that all 18 and younger divisions are going to full top?

Bluecat...do you have any thoughts on covid-19 and any potential effect on remainder of season?
My husband company and his clients (both very large corporations) are ordering company wide shutdowns. Employees are going to be working from home. Then you hear about the cancellation of music festivals etc. Then I also hear that there’s nothing to worry about, just need to wash hands a lot.
I honestly wonder if it’s smart to send my kid to practice, much less go to another comp. I can’t figure out if some are dramatically overreacting or if we are under reacting.
Bluecat....hypothetical situation under normal conditions for tryouts, if a CA athlete (who has been on several CA teams) was injured during eval period how would that be handled?
For example, if someone had a broken ankle and could not tumble but several coaches were familiar with their skill set would you go ahead and place them on a team contingent on them getting skills back or would you have them wait until they could complete the evaluation?
I don't know the answer. I don't think USASF really has a choice but to try to salvage Worlds. As the shutdown continues further, I don't see how Worlds is realistic for us, however. It is too soon to write the possibility off completely, but we are getting close to that point.Whats your opinions on the possibilities of worlds being pushed back? Ive heard rumors that they might now try and hold it late this year.
Realistic? Pointless? Or do you think there is a better way to save the season. Or to just move on.
