Varsity Spirit Canada Goes Virtual

Varsity Spirit Canada strives to provide high quality events and experiences for athletes across Canada. This season may look a little different, but we are committed to providing your programs options to host your season, safely. Our virtual evets allow your program to start your season from home, while still getting the chance to earn bids to our End-Of-Season Championships! Please note we still plan to offer live events when and where we can safely host them.

Virtual Events

How Does It Work?
The health and safety of your athletes, families & staff is our top priority and our virtual events allow your program flexibility to maintain all applicable COVID-19 guidelines. Teams will film in their own facility and our virtual event format does not require that all participating teams be present in their gyms at the same time or on the same day. Varsity Spirit Canada events will be exclusive to Canadian teams!

Filming Best Practices

Once routine videos are filmed, they will be uploaded to Varsity TV. There is no need to purchase additional equipment or internet services for your program – simply film on your phone or available camera! A Varsity All Star certified judging panel will score the routines in our Simple Score system. Score sheets and division breakdowns will be emailed to coaches, just like at an in-person event.

Where Can I Watch?
This event will then be available to watch on-demand on the event date on Varsity TV and each team will receive one FREE month subscription to watch! Our virtual event coverage will include features like fan voting, coach & athlete interviews, an awards reveal, mailed & virtual prizes!

Scoring & AccuSCORE
Once routine videos are filmed and uploaded to Varsity TV,  a Varsity All Star certified judging panel will score the routines in our Simple Score system. Score sheets and division breakdowns will be emailed to coaches, just like at an in-person event. All routines will be judged with sound and available for Varsity TV subscriber viewing with sound for 48 hours once the event goes live.

Teams will receive a link to our AccuScore review process prior to the start of the event and will be able to follow the steps similar to a live event for challenges. Our AccuScore experts will review your sheets and follow up with your program on any changes or clarifications prior to the awards announcements.

Non-Building Divisions
Varsity Spirit Canada will offer Non-Building division splits when requested for programs that are unable to perform building skills due to COVID guidelines. If your team plans to perform a traditional routine, but then encounters an issue (like an infected athlete), you will be allowed to move to a Non-Building division split at any time, without penalty. Teams in Non-Building division splits will not be eligible for bids. More information about Non-Building split offerings will be coming soon.
