SAFETY RULES/ PENALITIES
Routines at all USA competitions must follow the NFHS Spirit Rules Book (cheer), 2020-21 USA High School Teams Show Cheer and Group Stunt Division Limitations (cheer), 2020-21 USA Song/Pom and Pep/Short Flag General Safety Rules for School and Rec Teams and the 2020-21 USA High School Teams Song/Pom Division Limitations.
Points will be deducted from the final team average for violations of safety rules and/or time limits.
For specific safety rules for divisions, as well as time restrictions, skill restrictions, and other rules, please refer to the USA website at usa.varsity.com.
Teams may use as many songs in the music portion of their routine as they like. Music rules are being followed at all USA and Varsity Brands events. Competition music must be properly licensed and a team must be able to provide proof of licensing at any event where the music is used. If a team cannot provide proof of licensing immediately upon request, the team may be disqualified from the event. For further details visit varsity.com/music.
VIDEO OF STUNTS AND TUMBLING
We recommend that every team send a video of the stunts and tumbling that are choreographed in the routine that will be performed at Nationals.
It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure a routine is penalty-free. Do not rely on choreographers, or prior rulings from USA, or other Varsity competitions, to be your final determination on legalities. Unfortunately, penalties are not always caught during live Regional/Open/Classic performances. Emailing a video is the best method to avoid these oversights.
It is the policy of the United Spirit Association not to give any final rule interpretations over the phone and/or via e-mail without a video of the stunt(s) or tumbling in question.
All videos must be emailed to the USA office by March 26, 2021.
All videos must include the following:
Cheerleading videos should be emailed to Cheryl Moon at Cmoon@varsity.com
Song/Pom and Pep Flag videos should be emailed to Carina Clendenin at Cclendenin@varsity.com
If any of your skills are of major concern, please communicate that in the email and video that portion of the routine from different angles so we get a complete view.
USA will contact you by April 9, 2021 to inform you of the results of your “safety rules” video review. If you do not hear from us by April 9, 2021 please call the USA office to ensure that your email was received.
If you make changes in your routine after the video has been approved you may send a second video following the same procedure. These emails will be viewed as first come, first served and all videos may not be able to be addressed before the event.
For specific cheerleading stunt and safety questions that pertain to the 2020-21 NFHS Spirit Rules Book, or to the 2020-21 High School Teams Show Cheer and Group Stunt Division Limitations please call Cheryl Moon at 1-800-886-4872 ext. 2039 or e-mail Cmoon@varsity.com.
