Not sure if I should bring this up to my daughter....

My daughter received an invitation to a birthday party for Sat.

The problem is, this girl was likely made to invite her whole cheer team. I have heard her mock the newer girls (dd included) and I understand a little bit. She and her "bestie" take tumbling classes and live and breath cheer, meanwhile there are girls who are first years who can't even do a tumble, on the same team not to mention that these girls are 10 and dd is 8.

DD asked her what she wanted for her birthday and the girl told her "oh well I really like Alex and Ani bracelets" I am sorry kid, I am not getting you a $30 bracelet, you're 10.

If dd's friends from cheer are not going, I am considering trying to influence DD to not go. The girl goes to a private school, so dd definitely will not know anyone, and I feel like they are just doing it to "include everyone" and to get more presents.

I am not terribly happy to bring her to this party, but I also don't want to say no.

it is at a skating rink, and dd cannot skate, but daddy does roller derby so he will be accompanying her.

A male derby team. Actually the local team just combined with the other male team in the state and now practices are too far. So he is toying with the idea of becoming a ref for our women's team.

Have you heard of Mass Maelstrom?

a male derby team? or is daddy a reff? around here we have ZERO male teams...

If you let her go to the party she might get to be better friends with this girl and her bestie instead of being one of the newer girls they mock.
