One of USA Cheer’s primary objectives is to “promote safety and safety education for cheer in the United States.” It is a responsibility that is central to everything we do, including growing cheer participation and representing the USA in cheerleading internationally.
This safety update includes information on updated high school rules and the new rules course, as well as the recently released college rules.
Thanks to the combination of appropriate safety rules, ongoing safety education, and increased safety awareness by all, cheerleading has been ranked among the lowest risk high school sports for ten years!
We are excited to provide this safety update to our members, partner organizations, and friends!
