All of this information is coming straight from the gym owners and coaches to help our industry leaders to make this great industry better. Please take this information to heart because this will effect everyone in the Allstar Cheerleading industry.

It is clear that a small percentage of gym owners an coaches agree with the changes made with USASF rule changes...what was the purpose of the release of this information. If it was to test the waters I hope they got thier answer loud and clear. I would love to see a similar survery the many athletes and thier families who spend thier time money and efforts in this sport. I am sure you will find a resounding no to the rules and more importantly the proccess that brought these rules to light.

Slide 10: CONFIDENCE IN THE USASF’S ABILITY TO LEAD THE GROWTH OF ALL-STAR CHEERLEADING IS NOTABLY LOW Confidence level mean ratings, based on a 1-10 scale 10.0 Gym Owners are calling for a separation of Board Members affiliated with Varsity Brands to allow for more representation among IEPs, large and small Gym Owners, and other entities within the industry. There is a severe lack of trust with the current group, and a large percentage indicate that the most recent episode does nothing but reduce their diminishing confidence. A perceived lack of trust from USASF in the all-star community leads respondents to believe that USASF is ‘extremely out-oftouch’ with gym owners and that most recently the lack of democracy in rules changes has greatly limited trust and confidence. Most state that the Gym Owners’ best interests are not at stake. 8.0 6.0 4.0 2.0 3.5 3.1 0.0 Confidence in USASF (n=209) Copyright© Cheer Industry Insights 2012 Confidence in Current Board of Directors (n=196)
Slide 11: WHAT WOULD CONSTITUTE A SATISFACTORY RESOLUTION? • Gym Owners clearly want the ability to have input and a voice into the changes that have been imposed, particularly with the new tumbling rules • A voting process that gives owners and coaches significant input into the proposed changes will be necessary • Several are demanding that the rules changes be immediately revoked Copyright© Cheer Industry Insights 2012
Slide 12: IMPACT ON 2012-13 COMPETITION SCHEDULES IF NO SATISFACTORY RESOLUTION • • • • Changes to future competitions are a very likely possibility IEPs will certainly be given more consideration than ever before Several note that they will avoid Varsity competitions when possible A small minority indicate that there will be no change to their scheduling, due to the high standards demanded by their customer base Copyright© Cheer Industry Insights 2012
Slide 13: REPORTED INJURIES DUE TO ELITE-LEVEL TUMBLING Percentage of Reported Injuries by Body Part 4% 100% 10% 11% Head or neck Shoulders, back, or torso Upper extremities (arms, wrists, hands) Lower extremities (legs, ankles, feet/toes) 80% 60% 36% 40% 20% 39% Knees 0% Copyright© Cheer Industry Insights 2012
