1/28/13 – Competitive Cheer to be One Class in 2013-14

January 28, 2013 Cheer Blog Updates

The KHSAA Board of Control, at its January meeting, eliminated the two class format system with regard to competitive cheer beginning with the 2013-14 school year. 

Squad divisions will continue to be the following in the all-girls category:  Small (6-12); Medium (13-16); Large (17-20); Super-Large (21-24). 

Coed will be offered with a minimum of 6 (two boys/four girls or four boys/two girls) and maximum of 24, of which at least two shall be boys.

This action comes based upon participation by the membership during the 2012-2013 school year.  There were over 104 divisions within the two class, five division system, that either had no entry in a division (50) or just had one squad (54), creating an automatic qualifier (providing successful regional participation) to the state competition.
