After listening to a lot of the new music that has been released, which there is a lot of good and creative music out there. The DJ’s and Mixers out did them selves this year. But I have also noticed that there are several mixes that are over the 2’ 30” that are set forth in the rules. From the USASF Web Site under General Safety Rules and Routine Requirements http://usasfrules.com/general-safety/ Rule N Clearly States “Competition routines shall not exceed 2 minutes and 30 seconds.” Why would a DJ deliver a mix that is over the time limit to a team? Why would a Coach use any music that is over the limitl? What is the penalty for going over that time limit? Has there been any thought to a timing beep at the start of the routine to signal the start of the routine like they do in Gymnastics and Dance to the time keeper? Seems like there is a lot to loose and nothing to gain by pushing the length of time of a routine. I know that some coaches will come in just under that mark.
