2019 Cheerleading Competition Guidelines
1. NO REFUNDS FOR NO-SHOWS AT COMPETITION! Requests for refunds must be made in writing prior to October 11, 2019.
2. ALL teams and individual competitors must have a signed waiver form in order to compete. No exceptions! You must be a member of the squad/team the entire season to be eligible to compete with the squad/team. The coach must bring signed forms to registration.
3. SPECTATOR FEE: All spectators (ages 6 & over) must have a ticket to enter the fairgrounds. Competitors’ fees include fair admission for squad members and 2 coaches/advisors. Advanced tickets may be purchased through the NPF ticket office.
4. Coaches should register upon arrival and receive scheduled warm-up and performance times. Teams will be allowed 4 minutes warm-up prior to competing. An 18’x24’ warm-up area is provided. Please have your squad “on deck” and ready at the warm up area 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time.
5. COMPETITION FLOOR: The competition will be held in the arena at the South Gate of the NPF fairgrounds. The competition floor is a 42’x42’ matted area with approximately 18’ overhead clearance at the outer edges of the pavilion and extending to 53’ high in the center. If any member of your squad/team steps off the mat at any time during the performance, 10 points will be deducted from the total score. Remember, this is an arena, so the floor is not always perfectly flat due to it being dirt. We do our best to ensure a flat, safe performance surface for all girls. This year, mats will be vertical to the judges’ table.
6. MUSIC: Music is allowed for the entire routine or only a portion of the routine. There will be a 10 point deduction for exceeding the time limit of 2 ½ minutes for squad performances and 1 ½ minutes for individual routines. Timing begins with the first word, movement, or music. You may bring CD, cassette, or iPod with auxiliary cord. Please bring an extra copy. Some burnt CDs do not work, so come prepared. Each squad will need a sponsor/advisor to stop/start their music. It is the responsibility of the coach to make the decision to stop the music due to technical difficulties or injury. If this occurs, the routine will be judged up to the point the coach stopped the routine. The team will be rescheduled to perform within 10 minutes. If the coach chooses NOT to stop the routine, the team will not have the option to perform again. Music must be appropriate for all ages since this is a family event. There shall be no vulgar words or movement.
7. ROUTINES: Routines should include any combination of jumps, tumbling, cheer, dance, and pyramids. Music is allowed for the entire routine or only a portion of the routine. Squad routines should not exceed 2 ½ minutes. Individual routines should not exceed 1 ½ minutes. Cheerleaders may use signs, flags, megaphones, and pom poms.
8. AWARDS: Trophies will be awarded for all divisions. Number of trophies presented depends on number of squads entered. And categories may be combined due to number of entries.
9. ALL JUDGES DECISIONS ARE FINAL: A panel of qualified judges will determine winners. Competition rules will be according to the National Federation of State High School Associations. You may call 1-800-776-3462 or 816-646-5400 or go online to obtain the rules.
