06/17/16 – Competitive Cheer Music Copyright Update

Cheer Blog Updates

In mid-May, USA Cheer, along with Varsity Spirit, sent out emails to competitive cheer coaches concerning music copyrights. Since that time, staff has had the opportunity to review and discuss the information that was published, including discussions with counsel.

The Association purchases an ASCAP license for its State Championships. This purchase by the KHSAA does not include usage by individual schools who must adhere to the copyright laws regarding the use of music.

We are posting below the information USA Cheer and Varsity Spirit published in the event our coaches did not receive the information. Please review the following links for more information:

This is a reminder to all administrators and coaches concerning Bylaw 23, Limitation of Seasons.
