It has now been announced that their Executive Director is the former IASF & USASF Worlds Director, Les Stella.
Now here’s why this is… interesting…👀
When he stepped down from the IASF last year, he wasn’t allowed to work with cheerleading for 18 months.
That was because in his contract with Varsity, there was a “non-compete” agreement, which means:
Essentially, a non-compete agreement prohibits the employee from competing with the business directly or indirectly for a specific duration of time after their employment has ended.“ - Thomson Reuters legal.
Here’s parts of what Les said when he left the IASF, and took on new roles:
"With this decision, I am under an 18 month non-compete agreement so you will not be hearing from me for a while. Maybe, on July 1st, 2022, I will think about getting back into the All Star Cheer and Dance industry.”
“So blessed to be given this opportunity (especially since I cannot work in the Cheer industry until next July due to my non-compete with Varsity).”
Now here we are 18 months later, in July 2022, and he’s already back! + Working for what’s basically his former competitors as well.
Interesting, to say the least! 🧐
