I have heard great things about the upcoming competition in terms of production value, awards, etc.  It is a bit small this year, but that will mean both teams should be focused on winning their Level.  The upside is that the competition will not take long and even better the location has been changed to Greensboro!
This email is based off of the preliminary schedule, I will update you if things change.
General Information

The competition will take place Satuday, April 14th at the Corbett Sports Center (on the NC A&T Campus) located at 1601 E Market St, Greensboro, NC 27411.  Spectator Fees are $16 ages 13 to 64, children 6 to 12 and Senior 65 and up is $10, Children 5 and under are free.  There is no mention of a parking fee.  Video and photography is usually allowed.  Comments have been made in the past that crowd participation has been included in judge's critiques.  So we will be asking that the parents make sure they are down front together (when VIP sections are available), cheering, and LOUD!  Feel free to wear Carolina Elite colors!

Uniform, Hair, and Makeup

The girls have been told at practice how their hair should be worn.  If you need someone to do your hair please arrive in plenty of time to have them do it.  Don't wait til the last minute and be respectful when asking others to help.  As is usually the case we have selected a hairstyle that is clean and elegant!  The parents will appreciate it when they aren't taking hours to do the hair...and the kids will appreciate it years later when they look back and don't see a "bump".

As always DO NOT FORGET UNIFORM, SHOES, AND BLOOMERS.  Check and double check before leaving.  Then check again.  We expect no more make up than you would normally wear to school, including no glitter.  Clear lip gloss is perfect.  Also remove any finger nail polish and trim nails.  Long nails can be considered a safety hazard.  No jewelry is allowed.  Please arrive in uniform ready to perform (that means not in pajamas and boots, that's even listed in the USASF image guidelines).

Medical Form

Medical forms have already handled.


It's a short day so eat a good meal before arrival and you should be fine.

Last but not least

Please allow at LEAST an additional 30 minutes to whatever your GPS says it will take to arrive. You never know when you may have a flat tire, a broken axel, pulled for speeding, hit traffic, get lost...the list goes on!

With only two our teams competing be sure to support each other, we'll need everyone to be extra loud!
