October 10, 2023 Cheer Blog Updates


Information pertaining to the KHSAA Competitive Cheer Regional competitions for 2023-24 has been posted to the KHSAA website. There are several items for participating schools to review prior to the competition on the Competitive Cheer page of the KHSAA website. This includes regional instructions for managers, participating teams, and fans as well as a detailed time schedule for each region.



  • Each regional site will have a “coaching box” of a maximum of 6 seats.
  • Each participating school can decide who will occupy these seats during the school’s performance, as long as it doesn’t exceed six (6) total (i.e. 2 alternates, 4 coaches or 3 alternates, 3 coaches, etc.).
  • As a reminder, in accordance with Universal Cheer Association’s (UCA) Championship Rules, it is required that each team has a responsible adult at the music station who knows the routine and music (no alternates or team members allowed) and not in the coaching box.
  • This representative is responsible for pressing “play” and should not be 1 of the 6 individuals occupying the coaching box.
  • No other participants from other squads or individuals will be permitted on the floor.



  • The contact information for each regional manager at each site has also been posted and can be viewed here: REGIONAL MANAGERS 


  • Prior to the first regional competition, the chart detailing the number of qualifiers for each region in each division will be posted and sent to participating schools.
  • The 2023-2024 KHSAA State Competitive Cheer Championships will be held on December 8-9 at George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester.
  • In the coming weeks, a finalized detailed time schedule will be developed for the state championships.
