Scoring & Judges

Varsity is proud to lead the way in all star scoring with the Varsity All Star scoring system. Our mission is to inspire teams to create all star routines that balance Difficulty with Technique and Performance and bring out the best in all of our athletes. The Scoring Committee updates the scoring system every year based on feedback from coaches, judges, and industry leaders. Over the past several years, the Varsity All Star Scoring System has become the standard in all star scoring, being utilized by almost every all star competition in the country.

A Message From Our Judges

"'Your hard work did not go in vain despite today’s uncertainties. We saw you and appreciate the hard work and dedication you put into this season. You gave it your all and we are all proud of you!'" Britney HolderTN
"'To all the seniors in the world that have had their season abruptly ended - with all the wonderful memories they have made through years of cheerleading, as Walt Disney said, ``Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever``. I can't wait to see all the ``dreams`` they are about to make ``realities`` in years to come!'" Joe DolanskyVA
"'Cherish the memories you have and search for a way to celebrate the hard work you have put in over the season.'" Jodi SweetCA
"'Head up. I know this is so hard but cherish the memories you have and know we are all so very proud of you! For some there will be another year and others there won’t. Be sure to bond together and remember why you are a cheerleader. Good luck and much love!'" Stephanie MaciaszekGA
