2016 Cheerleading Worlds Predictions

It’s just about that time of year again everybody! CHEERLEADING WORLDS! Let’s all do a synchronous hooray…HOORAY! This is the time of the season when people start predicting which teams they think will win cheerleading worlds. Each year for the past 3 years I’ve been saying that I’m going to do an in-depth podcast/YouTube video/blog on who I think will win worlds in each category…naturally that never happens, but this year “is the year.”

On a serious note, the lack of support is always what discourages me from doing such an extensive video, but I’ve decided to do it this year for myself…whoever reads/watches/listens will just be an extra incentive on my side 🙂

I’m still debating on whether I’m doing a YouTube video or a podcast as I go in-depth with my actual predictions. In all honesty, it would take hours and hours of typing for pages and pages of predictions that people don’t want to read. Maybe you guys can help me out with that. Leave your comments below with what you would rather have…a video or a podcast!

Yes, this blog is titled “2016 Cheerleading Worlds Predictions” but this is going to be a preview teaser of who I think will make the top 5-6 placements in the senior divisions only, and once I decide on which platform I want to further elaborate on, my actual predictions will be announced.

My predictions are based on (if it matters) this years performances at NCA Dallas and/or UCA Orlando. I’m going based off the routines that these teams put out, not what placements they received. With the updated scoring that’s going on at worlds ( i.e., bobbles counting as deductions) who KNOWS what will happen with teams who may not have perfected certain skills. Also, teams may have added difficulty to their routines, and I’m not affiliated with any of these gyms, so I wouldn’t know. These predictions are going off my knowledge of cheerleading, the scoring system, and the routines that have already been showcased to the world.

So…here goes nothing. Remember, these are in no particular order (except maybe alphabetical).
