USASF: Have A Suggestion For Rules?

USASF LogoRules suggestions may be submitted until July 15, 2019 to be considered for future discussions.

This is a non rules change year. This form is to allow for our members to begin conversations, as needed, in anticipation for the next rules cycle year and/or imminent safety concerns that the USASF Rules Committee may consider.

As a reminder, you must have support for this change by three USASF members outside of your gym/organization. You will need to include their names as well as their email addresses below. If that information is left blank, or is incorrect, your submission will not be considered.

USASF: Cheer and Dance Rules Updates ….Coming Soon

USASF Logo 2018We’re approaching the time of year that USASF posts an early release of the Cheer and Dance Rules and Age Grid for the following season. We’re carefully watching how the current season’s Age Grid and Rules are helping our members as any new updates are considered. At the same time, the USASF Rules Committees are monitoring changes that other national and international cheer and dance rules organizations are making, and they’re weighing whether or not those changes would be in the best interest for USASF members to adopt.

Additionally, every two years is a cheer rules change year (as is 2019-2020) which makes for a much more involved process of reviewing two years of submissions and feedback from our members. The USASF Cheer Rules Committee has been meeting and working for months on the rules and age grid and we are excited to share with the membership the updates for the 2019-2020 season which continue to encourage athlete safety, longevity and growth.

Later this month, the Cheer and Dance Rules Teams will host and record webinars outlining updates for the 2019-2020 season. The recordings will be available for members who were unable to attend live, and supporting documents will be posted on the rules website and in The Connection.
