Level Legacy

Are you curious how your skills stack up against other athletes in your Level?

Varsity All Star Level Legacy is a 4-week individual skills challenge for All Star cheerleaders to see who is the best in the world in their Level.

Each week, we will upload new level-specific standing and running tumbling challenges on Monday and the athletes will have until that Sunday to submit their best video.

A talented panel of judges will evaluate each submission and score appropriately from this score sheet. Once judged, athletes will be ranked in order by level right here on Varsity TV. Rankings will be updated each week and the top 3 athletes of each level will have their video submission featured on Varsity TV.

Meet the Level Legacy winners who will take the floor at the 2020 Battle in the Arena presented by Varsity Footwear!
