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.
