    The talk is that it's Juba (Marlins coach, went to Nitros, left Nitros), Yuri (Fearless) along with a few other people. Anyone know anything else?

    Maybe someone here knows how this is going to work (us parents can't seem to figure it out and it makes us a little nervous!). Yuri was the owner of Unique Allstars (not Fearless), and he just closed his gym. Juba & Mykel (formerly of Nitros) are opening Crown Athletics in two locations - Waldorf and Elkridge. At the same time, Fearless Allstars posted a press release saying "We would like to take this opportunity to announce that Juba Ra-Akbar and MyKel Jones will be joining our coaching staff and fearless family." How on earth are they going to be at two of their own locations and at Fearless at the same time??

    I'm no expert on the other teams your discussing but I do have an involvement in the current Cali expansion near a current gym. My problem with everyone talking about the shadiness of teams moving into areas of current gyms is that no one knows what is going on at the established gym. Many people are happy to have another gym move into this area. So many problems and craziness going on at one gym so we are very excited that a gym that is obviously run in a different more positive way is now available to our CP. If a gym provides a good program then people wouldn't be lining up to join another program.

    Sorry, that was a mistype. I was thinking Fearless because I knew that for a hot minute Juba was supposed to be going there. I'm just as confused as you. Was very sad to see Unique go because they were a strong program that we got a chance to compete against pretty often.

    It is usually done with a purpose, not just moving in to offer a better business. It's moving in to take over an area. Don't think they are necessarily trying to make a profit from that location but to pull to their multiple locations.

    on Crown Athletics, I heard from a reliable source that they will just be working with fearless. However they are their own separate entities. I can assure you Juba and Mykel are going to do great things with Crown Athletics!

    I saw a Cheer Athletics' tweet that said something about how the coaches have twitter too, a waitlist of replacements, and they're ready to start reviewing the list. Minor drama, of course, but I wouldn't expect any earth-shattering drama from the folks at CA either. I did a mental "WHA----CHHHHH" whip sound in my head when I read that tweet. ;)

    I have heard nothing but good things about Juba and Mykel. I guess the concern is that Juba and Mykel will be spread too thin. The Fearless press release makes it sound like they are working there. I would have to imagine that starting a new gym is extremely time-consuming and it's just hard to consider a new program if the owners won't have their full focus there. And, it's been said before, but the information out there about Fearless is not good (both on Fierceboard and from friends who have been there and left). Just from what has been shown in earlier threads, I really don't want to join a program that is associated with them. This is a tough one...

    I understand your concerns however, you can't believe everything you hear. I can assure that they live and breathe Crown Athletics and that will be their number one priority. In addition to what I stated earlier, Crown Athletics will not be affected by anything going on with Fearless as far as the athletes are concerned. I myself am excited to see great things happen with this program.
