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.
