PHASE 3 –BUILDING SKILL EVALUATIONS BY ALL-STAR SKILL LEVEL (JUNE / JULY 2017)

  • Athletes will practice with the team they are placed on starting the week of MAY 29, 2017 – through the end of JUNE 2017

  • Athletes that DO NOT meet the minimum requirements will be moved to a lower level team where he or she can learn those building skills

PHASE 4 – INDIVIDUAL BUILDING SKILL EVALUATIONS BY TEAM (JUNE / JULY 2017)

  • Once athletes have been placed on a team by their BUILDING SKILLS, he or shee will be evaluated vs one another to fill specific team skill spots
  • In the event that there are multiple athletes going for the same position, the most skilled athletes will obtain those skill specific spots… 
    • EXAMPLE – If there are 15 athletes on a team, there will only be 3 flying positions. If there are 6 athletes that consider themselves to be flyers, only 3 of them will get the position…  The other 3 athletes will then need to base or back at that level or be placed on another team
  • If an athlete is beat out of a skill position for a specific level team, POWER will try and find other options to use the athlete’s talents to the best of their ability.
  • In some cases the athletes may be in a transition from one specific skill to another specific skill…  POWER will do its best to help the transition… This may mean being on a second team to allow the athlete to perform the skill specific position they desire –OR- if they family does not wish to DOUBLE TEAM, moving the athlete to a lower level team, where he or she can start to learn new skill specific positions
  • PLEASE NOTE - IF THERE IS A TIE IN SKILLS SETS BETWEEN ATHLETES FOR A SPECIFIC POSITION - THE TIE WILL BE BROKEN BY JUMPS & JUMP TECHNIQUE...MEANING THE ATHLETE WITH BETTER JUMPS WILL GET THE POSITION

PHASE 5 – MENTAL ABILITY (ANY TIME THROUGHOUT THE SEASON)

  • In some cases athletes may possess the TUMBLING & BUIDLING Skills need for a specific level, HOWEVER the athlete may struggle to keep up with choreography, pace of the practices, or skill development.
  • Athletes lacking in Mental Ability will be moved to a lower level team where he or she can excel and gain confidence
