  10. What is the practice like for Cheer Ltd. Nationals at CANAM? Team CANAM wants all teams to have as much practice as possible.  With that said, there are over 5000 competitors that all want to practice!  Cheer Ltd. has a warm up arena that has scheduled times for practice before you actually compete.  Nobody is allowed into this practice facility (Arena B) other than coaches and participants.  This is a closed area dedicated to practice and "getting it together mentally" before a team competes.  Each team has one floor times in their rotation (all stars - spring floor + tumble strip, cheer - one cheer mat plus tumble strip and dance - one mat and one marked concrete floor surface). On top of your scheduled practice times, there is the ballroom area that is bonus space - it is on a first-come-first-served basis.  We ask that if there are teams waiting, coaches take no more than 10 minutes on the practice floor.  A Cheer Ltd. facilitator will be on hand to make the flow appropriate if neccesary.  Remember, these competitors learn life lessons from their coaches so respectfully take turns! We have also listed our host hotels that offer rental of practice facilities if you want large blocks of time.  You may contact them directly - Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel - (843) 918-5015.
