In 2014, American Cheer Power, a Varsity Spirit Brand, created the National Small Program Association (NSPA). The purpose of the NSPA is to help build successful small programs all around the country. It is their goal to help small gyms grow their programs and better prepare them to become successful businesses, as well as competitive programs. Cheer Power began implementing National Small Program Championships under the NSPA throughout the 2014-2015 competition season. Currently, the official USASF definition of Division II (formerly Small Gym divisions) is defined as having as having 125 or fewer athletes registered in its competitive cheer program. With the momentum and success of The Summit and The Dance Summit in May 2015 and with the USASF definition of Division II, Varsity All Star created and continues to host the D2 Summit Championship- exclusively for the 125 athlete and under programs.
More information about the 2022 D2 Summit Championship will be coming soon!
All athletes participating on a team at The 2022 D2 Summit must be a registered member of that team’s program during the 2021-2022 competition season. Any athlete that exhibitions or competes on the floor with a team in any level from a program (Primary Program) after January 1, 2022 must have a Varsity Spirit Program Release Waiver signed by the owner of the Primary Program before that athlete is eligible to compete with another program at The 2022 D2 Summit Championships.
Completion of the Varsity Spirit Program Release Waiver is a required process between the Primary and Secondary Program owners. In the event a formal protest is made and the official Program Release Waiver has not been signed, or if the Secondary Program is not able to provide one as physical proof to a Varsity Official, the Secondary Program will not be eligible or will be disqualified depending on the time of the formal protest. All Varsity Spirit Program Release Waivers must be turned in with your official USASF event roster at The D2 Summit.

"'We first decided to take the climb about 3 years ago. We worked hard for several years to develop our program to be able to compete with this caliber of competition. We love the atmosphere and being able to compete against other incredible programs. We get to showcase what small gyms can bring to the floor and it develops comradery between the coaches, parents and athletes. The D2 Summit is more than just a competition, it’s something that brings programs and families together.'" Tracy DerrPennsylvania Elite
"'Come to the Summit! I think it’s an amazing experience not just for your athletes but to gain exposure and grow your business. Our program has grown tremendously because of the D2 Summit. The kids love the excitement and our athletes strive to compete against the best of the best across the county.'" Amity BerriosElite All Stars
"'Winning the D2 Summit is one of my favorite memories. We felt so honored to be competing with the incredible other teams and when they called our names and the confetti went everywhere we were thrilled. The parents went crazy and the faces of the kids is something that will always stay with me because all of their hard work paid off!'" Lori McPhersonMaine Stars
"'I want to go to the Summit because it’s an amazing experience. The Arena is so large and to have all eyes on you and your family cheering you on is magical. Getting to have fun at the parks and bonding with your team is great – It’s like going on a GIANT family vacation!'" Petyon DerrAthlete at Pennsylvania Elite
"'Each time that we have gone to the Summit, we have stayed on property and it’s really great for the experience and team bonding of the athletes. When looking at the financial value and convenience – park hoppers, accommodations and transportation all being arranged for you, there’s no better way to do Disney.'" Jordan TranParent
"'I think The Summit is a really important competition. It gives teams an end goal and a focal point to look forward to all season. Under that pressure, kids learn, grow and improve. The Summit teaches them how to work hard and come together to accomplish something incredible.'" David LenglingChoreographer
"'The experience we had at the 2019 D2 Summit was unlike any other for TAI athletes and staff and the TAI family. We brought all 4 age eligible teams to the D2 summit and came home with two second places finishes and two D2 NATIONAL CHAMPION titles. This is an unheard of accomplishment and an experience I wouldn't trade for the world! I can't thank this gym enough for what they have given my child.'" Kirsten StifflerTAI Parent
