Routines at all USA competitions must follow the 2020-2021 NFHS Rules Book, 2020-2021 USA High School Teams Show Cheer and Group Stunt Division Limitations, 2020-2021 USA Song/Pom/Pep Flag Safety Rules and/or the 2020-2021 USA Song/Pom Division Limitations. To order a copy of the current NFHS Rules book please visit https://www.usacheer.org/high-school-cheer#_order.
Submitting a video is the only way to review a routine for potential safety violations.
For all legality, division limitations, or questions regarding specific performance elements, you may email a video that contains the skill in question.
All emailed videos must include the following:
Cheerleading videos can be emailed to Cmoon@varsity.com.
Song/Pom and Pep Flag videos can be emailed to Cclendenin@varsity.com.
Note that submission of a routine and/or its elements does not preclude a team from being assessed a penalty while at a specific USA competition, as performances from the video submission may differ from those executed on the competition floor. Submission of a routine does not guarantee that it can be reviewed.
All division limitations can be found in the 2020-21 USA Spirit Competition Information Packet which you may download above.
The 2020-2021 NFHS Rules Book can be purchased by visiting https://www.usacheer.org/high-school-cheer#_order.
