JANUARY 27, 2018
We are so excited to start another season of Spirit Celebration events, and that you are a part of our DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS NATIONALS competition for the 2017/2018 season. Below we have listed instructions that we hope will help to make this a fun and “less stressful” day.
IN ORDER FOR YOUR REGISTRATION TO BE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING THINGS ARE NEEDED:
- USASF ROSTERS for All Star Cheer/Prep and All Star Dance. An updated roster for each team competing will need to be submitted for EACH competition attended.
- **SC ROSTERS** (School, Game/Rec, Special Needs) are located on our website under the RESOURCE TAB.
- Balance paid in full prior to the late fee date. If balance is not paid by the late fee date, then a late fee will be administered onto your invoice.
(Checks will NOT be accepted 10 days prior to the event date)
- Each team is allowed up to two free coaches. For each additional coach, there will be a $20.00 fee.
- All coaches needing to get into warm up (ALL STAR CHEER/PREP AND DANCE ONLY) MUST submit their USASF/NCIS background check to be put in your gym’s file.
Attention Coaches: Your USASF event rosters (for All Star, All Star Prep & Dance) must be submitted to our office 2 weeks prior to the event! EVERY COACH GOING TO WARM UP must have a medical release waiver on file before being allowed in warm ups or on the floor. (Once waivers have been turned in at one of our events, you do not need to re-submit)
Per USASF, anyone that will be entering the warm-up room with teams (owners, coaches, team moms, etc.) will be required to have NCSI background check with a “green light” through USASF. Those that receive a “red light” or do not complete a background check will not be allowed into warm-up.
Floor Type: Competition Floors are 42’x 54’ carpeted spring floors
Warm up Floor: Please report and check in with warm ups 30 minutes prior to your scheduled warm up time. PLEASE help us in keeping the competition running smoothly and on TIME. Teams will receive 8 minutes on stunt mat, tumble strip and 42’x 54’ non-spring warm up floor. Music box is provided.
Music: Bring 2 quality recorded CD’s or an MP3 player. You may also bring an iPad or iPod with your music, please note that not all events may have iPad or iPod capabilities. Music systems are different; therefore, coaches are strongly advised to create routines that finish at least 5 seconds before the maximum time limit in order to avoid time limit penalties. If a mistake is made due to Spirit Celebration’s personnel or sound system failure, the team will be allowed to perform again from the point in the routine where the mistake was made.
Scoring Guidelines: One representative will be required to sign a rules/regulations form at registration per gym. Below is the content:
- Cross-over delay of more than 8 minutes will result in a deduction
- Per USASF, anyone that will be entering the warm-up room with teams (owners, coaches, team moms, etc.) will be required to have NCSI background check with a “green light” through USASF. Those that receive a “red light” or do not complete a background check will not be allowed into warm-up.
- Per USASF Sportsmanship policy, any inappropriate behavior can result in a deduction for your team. This includes coaches & parents! (i.e. cussing, not following camera policy, etc)
- After review table notification of score sheets available, you have 15 minutes to PAY for a review.
