   NBTA Statement on AYOP 2021 (Feb 2021)

      Last year, in 2020, twirlers and families across the nation dearly missed their annual trip to Notre Dame for AYOP, twirling’s oldest and most prestigious championships. The upside-down world caused by the relentless coronavirus pandemic created misery, uncertainty, and the cancellation of AYOP 2020.

      The big question this year is: Has the safety and vaccine picture improved sufficiently to permit AYOP 2021 at Notre Dame to be safely staged?

      Notre Dame and NBTA have the mutual desire of having this great event this summer in a safe manner for all who would attend.  We hope to provide a responsible decision as soon as possible.

      Let’s all keep praying every day for a 2021 AYOP. Wouldn’t it be great if the dark curtain rises, and we are all together again?

      Sir William Osler said, “Without faith a man can do nothing, with it all things are possible.”
