The judging process will assess the difficulty, execution of choreography and overall effectiveness of each routine using our standardized judging form.

Deductions for bobbles will be deducted per judge from the overall impression score. Please be aware of the Score Check policy.

Practice & Warm-up Area
The warm-up area is located behind the main competition floor.
- 8 minutes on 2 strips of unsprung
- 4 minutes on a sprung tumble strip
- 4 minutes on a full sprung floor
There will be sports therapists as well as emergency response personnel available for the day to ensure that athletes and spectators can be well cared for if necessary. The therapists will have supplies for their use only and will not be supplying them freely. The role of these people is to deal with injuries, not to tape wrists and ankles. Kindly plan to bring your own athletic tape.
Cheer Evolution will not be providing spotters for the event. If coaches feel they should provide their own spotters for the team, please contact Cheer Evolution prior to the event. No deductions will be made for teams providing their own spotters provided these spotters do not provide hands-on assistance, visual or verbal cueing.
Music and Sound Equipment
All music must be in CD or Mp3 format. NOTE: Do not use CD-RW!
If using the Mp3 option, please ensure that the track is on its own playlist. It is highly recommended that each team have a back-up copy of the routine CD at the music table in the event that there is a problem with the primary CD or Mp3. It is the responsibility of each team to ensure that their music is error free and plays on the music system. Once the team is positioned at the “in the hole” waiting area, event staff will escort the coach to the music station.
Team Entrance and Exit from Main Floor
All teams will enter the floor from a tunnel located back of stage right of the performance floor. In order to keep the competition on schedule, teams must immediately take the floor once announced. Inspirational words or cheers should be done prior to being announced. There will be event staff in position to give teams notice of the amount of time remaining.
Following the performance, teams will be directed to exit the floor back stage left and directed through to the video replay area.
