Information coming soon…



All U.S teams attending this event (and all USASF sanctioned events) are required to upload team rosters into their USASF member profiles online. Your team rosters must be accurate, linked to the specific event you are competing at and need to accompany your event compliance form. And every athlete, coach and gym/studio staff member must be a registered member of the USASF. Only professional members of the USASF and rostered athletes competing at the event will be allowed in any backstage area (including official warm-ups, open warm-ups, coaches rooms and all backstage areas). Your gym owner or registration contact for the event should have mastered this rostering and compliance process when it was rolled out in the 2017-2018 season – if you need any assistance or have any questions please contact your USASF Regional Director.

Cover Up went into effect with the 2012–‐2013 season.
Athletes with non–‐full top uniforms must wear a t–‐shirt or other suitable cover up over their uniforms unless they are
in the warm–‐up area, traveling as a group directly to or from the warm up area, or on the performance stage.

APPROPRIATE CHOREOGRAPHY went into effect with the 2012–‐2013 season.
All facets of a performance/routine, including both choreography and music selection, should be appropriate and suitable
for family viewing and listening.
Examples of inappropriate choreography may include, but are not limited to, movements such as hip thrusting and
inappropriate touching, gestures, hand/arm movements and signals, slapping, positioning of body parts and positioning to
one another. Music or words unsuitable for family listening, which includes, but is not limited, to swearwords and
connotations of any type of sexual act or behavior, drugs, explicit mention of specific parts of the body torso, and/or
violent acts or behavior are other examples of inappropriate choreography. Removing improper language or words from a
song and replacing with sound effects or other words may still constitute ‘inappropriate.’
Music or movement in which the appropriateness is questionable or with which uncertainty exists should be assumed by
the coach to be inappropriate and removed as to not put their team in an unfortunate situation.
