The Regions are all over the map(ha ha). Region 1 age groups range in size from 14 to 31.

Hmmm, I might be mistaken, but when I look at level 10, I don’t see any group under 10 girls and most are closer to 15. Where are you getting an average of 9 girls from?

That helps explain why Region 1 Jr A has 31. Ironically Jr A is the biggest(31) and Jr B is the smallest(14). So some other Region must have a bursting Jr B group.

Region 4 has 155 level 10's registered, so that would be an average of 12(almost 13) and change per age group.

You are talking Region 4, level 10? My list shows 10 girls in that level, and yes that is the smallest of all of the sections.
I have a friend with a daughter in that group and she told me there were 8 in her group..

Here some more numbers of size ranges of age groups I found in case you are interested. I like numbers.
R8 - 15 to 35*
R7 - 15 to 32
R6 - 9 to 23
R5 - 18 to 34
R4 - 9 to 17
R3 - can't find this year breakdown but usually similar to R1 & R5
R2 - can't find this year breakdown but usually around 2 to 9
R1 - 14 to 31
*R8 has a qualifying score to Regionals of 35 instead of 34 like all others, or they would have about 35 more level 10's, bringing their age groups an average of 3 bigger each

Well some would say that it being easier is unfair
why would it being "easier" be unfair? when they get to nationals they all compete in the same session with the same judges. It's an age old argument...Let's redraw regional lines so that X state or region has a better chance. What people forget is that in the states in Region IV, there is often only ONE option within a reasonable commute and in other regions, people can switch, they have options that most of us DO NOT have.

R5 is 19-34 kids. Some of my daughters teammates are in the group with 34. She is in a group of 20. Unfortunately it’s the way the groups are made and we just have to deal with what we are given. Sure it’s easier to qualify in a group of 9 vs 34 but we know how this works and we stil play the game ‍♀
