Cheer City use SCUK age grid/division guidelines and IASF rules but alongside this we are super excited to announce our own division Community 1, which will be at all our competitions this season.
Please use IASF Level 1 with these rules as exceptions which will then create Cheer City’s Community Level 1.
Tumbling: Forward and Backwards walkovers not allowed. Exception – Handstand Bridge, Bridge stand up and fall back bridge allowed. There needs to be a clear pause inbetween the skills.
Stunts: No Extended allowed, Example Prep extension, Suspended Splits, Flat bodied positions.
No two leg preps allowed in less in a pryamid.
Twisting stunts and transitions are allowed (but limit to ¼ Turn)
Pyramids: No Extended stunts allowed, Preps allowed with a bracer, and single leg stunts allowed with 2 bracers but no tic toc type skills allowed at prep height.
All other level 1 skills are allowed.
Community level 1 is considered an entry level division to cheer, So alongside Prep divisions athletes will not be able to crossover into allstar cheer divisions.

Varsity Scoring : //www.varsity.com/all-star/competitions/scoring-judges/ Please ensure you scroll down to the UK sections on the page.
*At this time, masks, face coverings, video quality, etc. currently do not allow for the Showmanship category to be properly scored at both Live and Virtual events.
For all events until further notice, teams will be scored based on their Appropriate Athletic Impression rather than Showmanship. This score will start at a 10.0 and may be reduced by .2 for each instance where inappropriate choreography, music, etc. is displayed. The entire judging panel will need to agree that the team lacked Appropriate Athletic Impression to reduce their score. This score will be final and cannot be reviewed/challenged.

We follow SCUK guidelines for Athlete crossover rules, and how many divisions/routines each athlete can compete in in one competition.
We aim to give a minimum of 10 minutes between performances (we cant guarantee athletes will be able to have full warm up time) so please bear this in mind when allowing crossovers within your teams, especially if a change of uniform is required.

In the event of a request to re judge a division there will be an additional cost of £150.00 to the team that is requesting the division to be rejudged, this can only happen before awards for this division and must be requested to the Cheer City’s event manager.
