In Review – April 2020

Welcome to May. We should be recovering from Worlds and starting the all level end of the year events, but instead most of us are still sitting at home. USASF cancelled Worlds 2020. IASF hasn’t announced a definitive plan, but is leaving the door open for having the event in conjunction with the ICU Championship in the fall. Varsity has announced A Summit will take place combining their end of the year events into this single event.

Season Ending Update II

Since publishing our Season Ending Update, USASF has announced Worlds 2020 is cancelled, but IASF is continuing to considering having the International teams compete in the fall with the ICU Championship.

Varsity announced a “One of a Kind” Summit that will combine or replace The Summit, D2 Summit, Dance Summit, and The US Finals. The event will not require a bid and will be open to Worlds eligible teams.

Season Ending?

About a week ago the season for many sports started falling apart. For me it started with several conference basketball tournaments announcing they’d be played without fans and picked up speed while watching an NBA game get postponed just before tipoff, after the players had warmed up. It spread quickly to other games and then to other sports and really hit home when March Madness, a personal favorite, was cancelled.

Between the Center for Disease Control recommending “cancelling all events of 50 or more people” for 8 weeks on March 15th and the White House suggesting everyone “avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people” for the next 15 days on March 16th, pretty much everything sports related I’ve seen was cancelled or postponed, except for the Iditarod sled dog race.

This responsibly, but unfortunately includes the scheduled end of the cheer and dance season. Since March 16th I haven’t seen any industry event scheduled before the end of May saying it would remain on it’s original date. This includes:

  • ICU & USASF/IASF Worlds
  • All Varsity Events including NCA College, Summits, and US Finals
  • Many and possibly all Independent events. I’m not aware of any continuing, just not able to conclusive state I’m aware of all being postponed or cancelled.

The Cheerleading and Dance Worlds 2020 Date Change FAQ

Why is there a date change for The Cheerleading and Dance Worlds?

The International Cheer Union is slightly changing their event date due to a scheduling conflict with important international meetings. That change is causing the USASF and IASF to slightly change their event date for The Cheerleading and Dance Worlds to avoid event overlap at Walt Disney World®.

What are the dates of the ICU World Championships?

To avoid a scheduling conflict with important international meetings, the 2020 ICU Worlds Championships will change their event date to April 27, 28 and 29.

Will this be the schedule for the following year?

At this time, we are only aware that it is a one-time change to the schedule.
