If an athlete from our bid winning team can’t make it to The Quest, are we allowed to replace them with another athlete?
You may not compete with more than the number of athletes that you qualify with. You can compete with less as long as it keeps you in the same division. You will only be able to replace 25% of your roster from the time you received your bid until you compete at The Quest. Example: A team of 22 competes and receives a bid, they can only replace 7 athletes (6.25 is 25% and we always round up) at the time of The Quest competition.

Are Crossovers allowed at The Quest?
Athletes will not be allowed to compete on more than 2 cheer teams at The Quest Recreational Championship. Athletes competing at The Quest are not eligible to compete at The Summit Championships.

Participants may only represent one organization. Participants must pay an additional registration fee for each additional team performance. However, if there is an athlete that is on a Paid bid team and crossing over to another Paid Bid team there will be no crossover fee applied.
