The Weekend Roundoff

October 28-29, 2023

It All Starts Now

It’s Friday. If you’re anything like us, you’re thrilled that the new season is here. Twitter (uh, X?) is filled with the sweet shrill of sound effects and the sparkle of a Swarovski Crystal. Music releases, uniform reveals, routine sneak peeks, and now competitions are here – even if it’s WAY early. Tiptoe into the season with us.

In this weekend’s roundoff:

  • The first two Summit/D2/Youth/Regional Summit bid competitions of the season
  • Catch one live-streamed competition on a device near you
  • Four showcases we have our eyes on
  • Two college recruiting clinics

Let’s go. ⬇️ 

The First Summit Bid Competitions of the Season

There are 290 Summit bid events this season, and the race begins this weekend. There are two competitions this weekend, one in Indiana and the other in Texas. They will award 3 Wild Card bids to the Summit, D2 Summit, and Youth Summit, plus 6 Partial-Paid bids to The Regional Summit.

The Summit bid declaration changed a bit this year – the most significant change being an increase in Wild Card bids.
