The USASF is dedicated to fostering growth for All Star and has developed a concentrated plan to aid USASF Program owner members to specifically focus on growing the Mini Age market during the 2017-2018 season.
The USASF Mini Age Challenge is designed as an initiative to guide program owners to utilize resources and tools created by the USASF to drive participation in the 5-8 year-old age group. By intentionally focusing on growing this age group, we will enhance the programs ability for long-term growth and the longevity of All Star.
The goal of the Mini Age Growth Challenge is to commit to increasing participation by 7 new athletes and converting 7 athletes to full-season team members by the end of the challenge time frame of September 8th – April 15, 2018.
To participate in the challenge, enroll by September 8th by completing the registration form. At the end of the challenge, participants will complete a Results form in order to be eligible for recognition for completing the Mini Age Growth Challenge.
Sign up today. Together we will grow All Star!
Dear USASF Program Owner and Coach Members:
The USASF Rules are created by committees comprised of coaches, event producers, legality officials and rules experts, and represent the most current and authoritative set of safety guidelines for the protection of All Star athletes. By choosing to be members of the USASF, event producers and programs together commit to train and compete All Star athletes utilizing these best known safety practices.
The USASF safety guidelines are created as a benefit of membership, and will now only be available for use by USASF event producer and program members.

Dear USASF Members:
As a native Texan, I could not be more proud of the response of so many of our USASF Program Owners and Coaches, from around the country, seeking ways to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. What an incredible example of unity and leadership at a time when we are all preparing for the upcoming competition season.
Our All Star friends in Houston are joining efforts to help each other out and could use our support. Please go to the Allstars United for Harvey Facebook page to see what’s needed and to offer your help.
They are organizing drop off locations in at least four areas of Houston to collect clothing, supplies and other needed items and will distribute to those in need in our All Star and extended cheer and dance families. Let’s show them our love and support!
We are Texas strong. We are All Star.
Regional Director, Southwest
