USASF: Legality Violations by Level

The USASF Cheer Rules Team has compiled a list of Legality Violations by level as reported by the USASF Legality Official onsite at USASF Sanctioned Events. This can be a wonderful resource for you to not only see what areas the violations are occurring, but to go back to the rules and review for your own teams/skills routines.

As always, when in doubt about the legality of a skill, members are encouraged to submit a video for review.
