Cheerleading Worlds

November 17th, 2010 by James

Cheerleading WorldsEvery year, top national and international cheerleading teams compete against each other trying to win applauds of the judges as well as the audience. The competition involves components such as jumps, cheers, dance, and tumbling and the national governing body for all star cheerleading is the USASF (U.S. All Star Federation) that holds the Cheerleading Worlds.

The USASF was constituted in the year 2004 by cheerleading competition companies to act as the national governing body and establish a set of rules and judging standards to be followed at all federation sanctioned competitions. The federation hosted the first Cheerleading Worlds on 24th April, 2004 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Judges at the Cheerleading Worlds look out for illegal moves to ensure that everything is conducted in complete conformity to safety and difficulty restrictions. Points are awarded to a team on the basis of execution of jumps, difficulty level, synchronization, creativity, showmanship, overall execution, and stunts. It is worthwhile to note here that all-star cheerleaders are categorized into divisions based upon team size, age, gender, and ability level and age levels could vary from under 4 years to 18 years or above.

During an all-star cheerleading event, a team has a high chance of making it to the Cheerleading Worlds if it is placed good enough at the chosen USASF or IASF sanctioned national events. It can then compete against teams from all over the world and receive money for placing. It is important to note here that each team to appear in the Cheerleading Worlds must get a bid from a company and only teams that are level 5 or above can become teams for the Cheerleading Worlds.

All-star cheerleading teams attend competitions all over the year for the coveted bid and honor of attending the Cheerleading Worlds and become a part of this talent-filled competition and sport.

The success and popularity of this event has grown considerably over the last few years. The event of 2007 saw the participation of over 100 teams from fifteen countries and the numbers rose to 30 countries in the year 2009. The 2010 Cheerleading and Dance Worlds Championship were held at the newly re-branded ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Walt Disney World, Orlando FL from April 24 – 25, 2010) and nationally titled all-star teams were invited to test their skills and compete against the best cheerleading squads in the world at the Cheerleading Worlds.
