09/16/15 – Competitive Cheer Squad Participation/Declaration Notice

September 16, 2015 Cheer Blog Updates


Attention Cheer Coaches:

An e-mail was sent today (Sept. 16) with instructions for your athletic director to respond to the KHSAA Competitive Cheer Squad Division Declaration Survey. Please get with your administrators regarding your school’s response with regard to participation in KHSAA Region and State Competitions.

This is the official and only source to declare a division for KHSAA postseason. Any other response to declaring a division other than through this survey is not valid.

Deadline for response is Wednesday, Oct. 1. No adjustments will be made to squad divisions following the Oct. 1 deadline for any reason. Keep in mind that if you have a injury and are not able to replace the injured member from your roster, you will still compete in the same division, just with fewer participants.

Also, note that following the Oct. 1 deadline, withdrawal from KHSAA Region or State for any reason will result in no out-of-state travel for squads and include a fine under Bylaw 27.

Following the deadline, the squads by division will be posted on the KHSAA website.


The KHSAA staff routinely publishes blog posts to better communicate with its various constituencies and the public. The blogs for specific sports and sport-activities are on that sport or sport activity main page, and there are general information blogs at
