05/12/17 – Competitive Cheer Update/Changes

May 11, 2017 Cheer Blog Updates


Following is a link to the news release that was posted following yesterday’s KHSAA Board of Control meeting concerning the use of Varsity (UCA) scoresheets for the upcoming season.

News Release

In addition, coaches should be mindful of the following changes:

Once UCA finalizes the scoresheets, we will send out a notice to coaches.  

Size of squads will be:
All-Girls Small (5-12 members)
All-Girls Medium (13-16 members)
All-Girls Large (17-20 members)
All-Girls Super (21-30 members)
Coed A (5-30 members – 1-4 males)
Coed B (5-30 members – 5 or more males)

Judge training will now be conducted through UCA (online) at no charge.  The KHSAA still manages competitive cheer, so individual school questions/inquiries are to still come to the Association office.

The State Competition will be Dec. 8-9 at Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.  Friday’s competition will involve Game Day and Sparkle (unified).  Additional information on these two will competitions will be submitted  to the schools soon.  The Saturday date for other divisions (All-Girls/Coed) has been scheduled for several years.

Please contact the KHSAA with any questions.
