February 24, 2019
Since 1990, this unique event has celebrated the spirit of youth and junior teams in both cheer and song/pom. The event takes place in Anaheim, CA, drawing nearly 2,000 competitors and 3,000 spectators, as teams compete in one over 30 different divisions. With an emphasis on school-based and youth/recreation league teams from elementary to high school-age, USA Jr. Nationals is a fantastic way to recognize younger teams for what they bring to the competition floor.
Two (2) coaches wristbands per team will be distributed as part of your team registration packet. These will allow coaches access to the “open warm-up”, “assigned warm-up” and “performance backstage” areas.
All performers will receive a shoe tag/wristband as admission to the competition. This should be worn on the shoe or wrist and the performer must be in uniform/sweats for admission. This shoe tag/wristband will be used for admission to the warm-up/practice area as well as to the main performance area.
All those entering the “open warm-up space” for any type of warm-up must have registered to receive their proper shoe tag/wristband. Open warm-up is located on North Hall Level 200 (2nd Floor – Ballroom A).

A legality official will be available at the scheduled warm-up/practice mats and/or floor to review routines of any safety violations. You are encouraged to perform all stunts and tumbling at that time. A review in the practice/warm-up area does not preclude a team from receiving a penalty during the team’s actual performance. The ruling of the safety judge is final. Remember that points will be deducted from the final team average of each occurrence of an illegal procedure performed during competition.
