The USASF Dance Executive Committee and The Dance Worlds Judges Junior Selection Committee is proud to announce the 6 teams receiving a USASF At Large Dance Bid to The 2013 Dance Worlds.
On March 4, 2013 in Dallas TX the USASF Category Advisors scored the video submissions. Of 43 performances judged by panel, the top 6 programs with the highest scores are offered a bid. The committee was exuberant about the young talent demonstrated. The 6 Teams are as follows:
South Coast Freestyle
Vision Dance Center
Music City All Stars
Scores and rankings will be sent out to all submissions with their information.
The USASF appreciates the combined efforts of member event producers, program owners, coaches, athletes, parents and USASF staff and Regional Directors to educate the All Star community about the USASF Athlete ID program during the 2012-13 competition season. As a result of your combined efforts, more than 70,000 athletes have been registered for Athlete ID so far this season. Athlete ID:
Creates USASF Official Event Rosters for teams that include a listing of team members, their Athlete ID numbers, birthdates and confirmed ages. Programs submit USASF Official Event Rosters to event producers at event check-in, instantly confirming athletes’ ages.
Saves time at event check-in by eliminating the need for coaches to carry birth certificates to events.
Is consistent with standard practices of youth sports organizations.
As a result of the successes of Athlete ID this season, a task force developed, and the USASF Board of Directors approved new processes for requiring Athlete ID for All Star Cheer and Dance athletes to compete at all USASF Sanctioned Events beginning with the 2013-14 competition season.
All Star cheer and dance coaches are gathering this summer to discuss, learn about, plan for and celebrate everything All Star! Don’t miss out! We’re thrilled to expand our six Regional Meetings with valuable All-Star Dance specific sessions, giving you even more opportunities to learn from industry pros!
You’ll want to register at least two coaches from your program so you’ll be able to take advantage of multiple cheer and dance class offerings. Meeting schedules, speaker and class lists and registration information are available online:
The USASF has 6 Regional Meetings for attendees to choose from. We are happy to announce the General Schedule to give you an overview of what will take place at each location. Exact topics and speakers will vary by location, however your Regional Director will be happy to assist you with your meeting specifics questions.
Credentialing will be offered at each meeting location. If you or members of your staff have credentials that have already expired or expire during the 2012-2013 season a Regional Meeting is your best opportunity to get it done!
Cheer & Dance Safety Judge Training and Rules Course
Cheer & Dance Safety Judge Training and Rules Course will be offered at each location. Judging candidates may register to attend the safety judge training only or are welcome to join us for the Regional Meeting. You must register for the events you want to attend. Coaches are invited (and encouraged) to attend the safety judge training course to audit the Rules Course to gain a better understanding of the rules in cheer and/or dance. There is an additional fee for the cheer rules course (refer to the General Schedule link above for registration fees and deadlines).
At our 2012 Regional Meetings, we will have renowned choreographers presenting master classes in Hip Hop and featured speakers for both our Cheer and Dance attendees.
