Where Exceptional Athletes Shine
In the early 2000’s, competitions began to include teams and athletes with disabilities; CHEERSPORT was one of the first events to welcome exceptional athletes on stage. The Kentucky Elite Showcats took to the performance floor, and from then on, the division gained momentum and popularity. Today, we proudly offer a place for athletes with disabilities to succeed through our CheerABILITIES & DanceABILITIES divisions, encouraging inclusion and growth for all.
We are always looking for ways to better serve our exceptional athletes. This season, we are proud to announce three distinct divisions in order to ensure every athlete has the opportunity to reach their full potential. The Exhibition, Novice, and Elite Divisions will each have specific rules to include teams from every ability level. Click each division below to find the place that is right for your team.
The Exhibition Division is free to register. Athletes/teams receive the standard gift or award that is associated with Exhibition performances. This division allows for helpers on the floor to assist with choreography, skills, and spotting.
The Novice Division is free to register. Athletes/teams receive the standard gift or award that is associated with Novice performances. In this division, teams will earn a rating: Outstanding, Excellent, or Superior.
Athletes will receive a registration rate consistent with ‘Prep’ pricing in addition to 2 free spectator passes per athlete at check-in. Teams will compete once at a one day event and twice at a two day event. Athletes/Teams receive standard gift/award associated with competing in an ELITE division. Typical ranking system like all other competitive ELITE divisions, using the USASF CheerABILITIES scoresheets.

"'CheerABILITIES and DanceABILITIES athletes deserve the same opportunities that other all star athletes have. There are so many life lessons that come along with competing that are irrefutable. The values of teamwork, dedication, sportsmanship, working toward a goal and, of course, the lessons that come along with winning and losing – those are things we all need to experience.'" Justin CarrierVP of All Star Experience
Spirit brings people together. It’s not always something you can see or touch, but it has become something that changes lives and helps many realize their true potential.
From school spirit to the spirit of competition and teamwork, cheer and dance have unique ways of connecting people. In schools, The Sparkle Effect welcomes athletes with disabilities, encouraging inclusion and growth for all. In a similar spirit, the all star cheer and dance community has dedicated time and attention to cultivating teams with athletes of special talents in the CheerABILITIES and DanceABILITIES divisions.
