2020 Championship Information

Health & Safety Update

At Varsity Spirit, the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, employees, families and friends is our top priority. We are diligently monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and closely watching official information from health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) and World Health Organization (“WHO”) as it relates to our larger community and our events, camps and competitions. We are also taking proactive, preventative measures for all of our employees. General adoption of best practices as advised by the CDC is the best way to prevent the spread of any illness.

We understand that this is a fluid situation, and we have a dedicated response team working around the clock to make sure that we keep our participants and attendees updated as the situation evolves. We will continue to keep you updated, and any changes to upcoming events will be based on the direction of public health organizations like the CDC and the WHO, state and local health authorities, and event partners, among others.

Updated 5.11.20 Event Updates
With the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, family, friends and employees at the forefront, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Summit Championship events. Please know that we gave it our best efforts, but COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on our world, and it has affected our cheer and dance community in ways we could not have imagined.

Refund information can be found below. We will be sending qualification banners to all programs that qualified with a bid, and we are working on plans to host a show on Varsity TV to recognize the many athletes that will not be able to participate in the 2020 Summit Championships. Information about ordering Summit Championship merchandise, including athlete participant medals, will be available in the coming weeks.

Refund Information

Refund Information
Full refunds for the Summit Championships will be processed for all attendees as we cancel your registration, no need to request a refund. We underestimated the time frame in which we thought that we would be able to process refunds to our Summit customers. We are extremely sorry for any financial hardship and disappointment this has caused. Our team has been working hard to keep up, but we are still at least a month away from completing this task.

Here’s what we are doing to address it:
  • We have moved 100% of our customer service personnel to work solely on Summit refunds.
  • We are using additional staff from other departments to assist with Summit refunds.

Here’s how you can help ensure your refund is processed as quickly as possible:

  • Do not issue a charge back on your credit card – this prolongs the process tremendously.
  • Be sure that the credit card we have on file for you has not expired.

We are so sorry for the wait, but you can be sure that we are doing everything in our power to get your money back in your pocket as fast as we can.

Once your registration has been canceled, you can log in to your myVarsity account and follow the instructions below to view your registration has been refund amount:

Dance Summit Testimonials

"'Our first experience at the Dance Summit in 2018 totally exceeded our hopes and expectations! Our program has been competing for many years and our older dancers are so passionate about Dance Worlds. Dance Summit has created that same level of excitement and pure commitment for our younger, yet equally intense dancers. It was an honor and an absolute blast to share the stage with such amazing programs. The memories our dancers and their families made are priceless and we cannot wait for the 2020 Dance Summit!'" Lee Eaves MitchellThe Vision Dance Center
"'There is no event like The Dance Summit, where the best talent in the industry come together to challenge and inspire each other. My dancers always look forward to an unforgettable bonding experience and as far as the memories made.'" Lauren NewellDance Dynamics
"'Dance Summit is the competition that each and every one of our dancers counts down the days to every year. The Dance Summit makes every dancer from every program feels like they are a part of something truly epic, and it’s because they are! It’s an amazing, smoothly run competition, where our dancers learn and grow with other dancers from around the country.'" Kayla PittnerDollhouse Dance Factory

The Varsity Pinnacle Award

The Varsity Pinnacle Award was created to recognize athletes & coaches that embody the core #AllStarStrong characteristics of Teamwork, Dedication, Confidence and Leadership. Prior to the events, coaches, friends, family and athletes had the chance to nominate a team or athlete that represented one of the main #AllStarStrong elements.

With over 1200 nominations, these extraordinary cheerleaders and dancers were selected for going above and beyond, not only on their team but in their communities. Congratulations to the 2019 Varsity Pinnacle Award Winners!
