Occasionally, divisions may be split, combined or removed at the discretion of the Nationals Competition Director in order to promote the best competition atmosphere. In the instance of a division split, we use various unbiased, nonsubjective methods (team sizes, day of registration, etc...) to divide the teams fairly into equally sized new divisions.


Recreation competition teams must understand that their first priority is not to compete, but to cheer for other recreational sports. Being involved in Recreation Competition Cheerleading is secondary to cheering games for the association that they represent. Teams competing in the Recreation Division will be required to submit a notarized letter from the Director of their Association stating the teamís relationship with the recreational program and approximate time/length of the cheer season. Teams that do not meet the requirement for Rec divisions will compete in All-Star or All-Star Prep Divisions.

Youth/Rec Divisions The Youth/Rec. Division exists for teams with the main purpose of cheering for and/or supporting a recreational team (i.e. youth football, pee wee sports, community sports teams, etc.).

All Youth/Rec Teams will need to provide a notarized letter from the city Director of Youth League that proves legitimacy of the organization. The letter must include how many teams are associated with the recreational program and approximate time or season/s they cheer. Note: Competitive only youth programs are considered an All Star program, and must compete as an All Star team and follow the All Star rules and regulations Teams that do not meet the requirement for Rec divisions will compete in All-Star or All-Star Prep Divisions.
