Score Check:

Coaches who wish to clarify point deduction(s)/legalities or challenge scores they feel are out of range in DIFFICULTY (for worlds teams only) may meet with a score convenor for review. The score convenor will have the ability to review the discrepancy and reward/deduct points accordingly. Please be sure to fully read and understand the Score Challenge policy thoroughly, any coaches/program found to be abusing the system will be barred from challenging scores for the remainder of the season or competition.

Teams will have 30 minutes after their performance to report to Score Check for clarifications/review.  Teams that are last in the division should report immediately to Score Check as the timeline may be closer to 20 minutes after their performance time in order for us to remain on schedule for Awards. All score check challenges must be submitted to the score check convenor within this 20 minute time frame.

Canadian Cheer will endeavor to communicate this information in a clear way, and do our best to ensure teams have an equal and fair chance to review their scores.

How Score Check Works:

  1. Report to score check after your team’s performance(5 – 10 mins). If you are within 20 minutes of awards please report immediately after your video review.
  2. Check with the score check admin(s) to see if your team sheet has been released and when the 20-minute time frame finishes. Ensure you are within the timeline and know the deadline.
  3. Request your team score check document from the desk.
  4. Review point deductions and difficulty scores (for worlds teams only), and reference the available grids and rules if needed. Your cheer replay email(s) should have a video clip of your deduction or legality.
  5. Challenges may be made for any scores out of range (worlds teams only) and/or point deduction/safety infractions. If you wish to challenge in one of these areas, please fill out this form and an appointment to speak with a legality official will be made. (Please remain near Score Check to ensure your request has registered. An official will meet with you according to your spot in the queue.) Ranges will need a detailed description of elements in the routine up for dispute. (IE – numbers of passes, number majority, stunt descriptions, etc.) The official will review your video and make a final decision. There is a 5-minute time limit per challenge, and only 2 coaches/team representatives are permitted to meet with the official at one time. If you have an official video ruling, please have your e-mail with video ready prior to your appointment with the official.
  6. If the challenge results in a score change, please request a new score check document with the changed scores. This ensures that the scores were entered into the system and are officially accepted.


We encourage you to send in videos of questionable skills prior to your event to receive an official ruling. Reminder that the skill performed at our events needs to be performed the exactly the same way it appears in the video to get a ruling overturned.

If you are looking for skill approval, or help for skill legalities, you can email s.derosa@canadiancheer.com, or for an official ruling, please email rules@cheercanada.ca (must have Cheer Canada membership number). or cheer.rules@iasfworlds.com; please note that prop approval must be received by the IASF prior to the event.

When requesting an official ruling from the IASF please make sure to include the following:

  • In the subject line: Your program name and Country you reside in
  • In the body of the email: The team’s Division, Level and area for which you are seeking a ruling (ex: Stunts – U8 L2 Stunts, U U12 L3 Pyramids)
  • Requests are limited to 1 Video of the SAME SECTION at a time. Multiple videos will not be reviewed.
  • We cannot evaluate any skill that is not submitted as a true attachment.
  • We cannot download a skill from iCloud (or any other online method) to review – or review a video on YouTube (or any other video service) as it does not give us the opportunity to reattach the video to our reply.
  • Rulings are based on the skill as performed in the video and are not a guarantee of legality as skills may be performed differently at a live event.
