In Review – September 2019

September has come and gone, bringing back school and football. Here’s some of the news that came along with it.

In Review – February 2019

February has come and gone, bringing with it a couple of the largest events of the year. UCA High School Nationals and Cheersport. Today starts March and NCA. Good luck to everyone competing.

In Review – January 2019

January has come and gone, taking along with it one of our favorite events, UCA & UDA College Nationals.

In Review – October 2018

October came and went, bringing Fall and Halloween with it. This month I was reminded of cheerleading being used in headlines to catch the attention of readers. People published an article titled Cheerleader’s Alleged Admission that She Didn’t Want to Be Mom Is Admissible in Baby Murder Trial that had nothing to do with cheerleading knowing including cheerleading in the title would increase clicks. The article even starts with “The former cheerleader accused of” and the only other time cheerleading is mentioned is another reference to “the former cheerleader”, unless you count links to other articles related to the same story. It is a reminder of the gap between the attention and respect cheerleading is given.

USASF: Team With Exceptional Athletes Selected as National Team

Dear USASF Members:

Thanks to USA Cheer, the USASF was just granted the opportunity to send a team with Exceptional Athletes (formerly called Special Needs) to the International Cheer Union (ICU) World Cheerleading Championship in April of 2018 to represent the National Team for the USA!

In order to meet the timeline of this special invitation, an Exceptional Athletes Sub-Committee met to create an expedited selection process. The committee decided to award this opportunity to a team who already competes and who could adapt a routine to the ICU format and safety guidelines in time for the championship.

Congratulations to Maryland Twisters Eye of the Storm, who will represent The National Team for the USA at the 2018 ICU World Cheerleading Championship!

Moving forward, a process and system will be implemented to include more teams with Special Needs in the selection process. We will likely create a video submission program (similar to the current Worlds bid video program for teams with Exceptional Athletes) where a distinguished panel of judges will select the official team. Be on the look out for the 2019 US National Team information that should be released this Fall.

Qualify To Perform At Worlds, 2018

Teams with Exceptional Athletes still have the opportunity to submit videos to compete for 5 At Large bids to Exhibition at The Cheerleading Worlds, 2018. Don’t forget—videos are due no later than March 1, 2018. Click here to learn more!
