Event 4 was my first of many Worlds bid events this season. One positive observation was how much better Level 2 baskets have become. I feel like the used to consistently be low, crooked, and generally a little sloppy, but lately they have been significantly higher, straighter, and just generally better. Great job coaches!
This weekend also reinforced Tiny 1 being my favorite division to watch thanks to the little girl that realized the screen behind them was showing the routine and stopped to watch it instead of performing.
As far as rules stuff goes, Les tweeted what was most prominently on the Core Officials’ minds:
Big Bid weekend coming up. To all teams, don't forget the early release rule this year. Don't lose a bid for something so simple to fix.
