How many people can actually say that they know the rules for the level in which they compete? Shouldn't we know the rules, at least for the level in which we compete, for our sport?
Well, I judge legalities, so I HOPE i know them for all the levels. If I ever have a question though, Les Stella is always happy to help and to clarify. As a coach...you should all REALLY know your level rules. Safety deductions are usually pretty hefty and can really change the outcome of placements. It isn't like the rules are a big secret and not accessible!
Football players make mistakes as well, even if they do know the rules. Breaking the rules = penalties in football, just like cheerleading. I think the coaches knowing is more important than cheerleaders knowing. Why should a bunch of 10 year olds know the level rules...that is why parents pay good money to have their kids in private gyms. Those coaches, owners and directors should be the ones that pay to gain the proper knowledge. Just sayin though....
Except there is no mini level 5 anymore...it's illegal! HAHAHA...sorry, had to post on that. I get the point though and thank you for understanding what I was trying to get across!! I also don't expect a 16 year old athlete to know the rules. Again, it is NOT THEIR JOB.Furthermore, you really expect a mini level 5 to know the rules?!
