Fox News is reporting the Arizona State University cheerleading program has been ended due to some racy pictures showing up on the internet.
More rumors are floating around about the All Level International Championship, formerly known as the International All Level Championship. We’re hearing it will be held next Easter (2 weeks before Worlds, but the same weekend as NCA College) in 2 locations simultaneously, Atlanta and Los Angeles. The winners are supposed to be judged via internet by a panel of judges in order to declare the champion.
In short, the goal of this event is to be the Worlds for non-Worlds divisions. Varsity Brands, CheerSport, and many other appear to be involved, with the notable exception being the JAM Brands. There won’t be paid bids, but qualifiers are charged different rates depending on their success at qualifying events.
More rumors and/or details will be posted as they come in.
