Summer Is Upon Us!

We are excited to be sending out our first industry insider newsletter; Cheerleading Today – A Maximum View! It is our hope that this newsletter provides a direct, clear, and non-biased resource for gym owners, coaches, and other industry professionals. This initial send went out to to a select few but, we would love to have you forward it to a friend (or 20) and encourage them to sign up for the newsletter themselves. 


This issue will go over

  • A full EP listing of events by date, region, and location.

  • A review of the scoring systems in the industry. 

  • A list of which EPs have selected which scoring systems to use. 

  • A summer conference list.

  • A virtual training resource guide.

With more and more opportunity for your athletes to compete it can become hard to sort through it all. We have built an inclusive list, organized by region and date. While we are working to keep the list up to date – we cannot guarantee that changes have not been made by individual businesses. If you see something that would work for your schedule – we recommend reaching out to the EP directly. 

Below you will find two lists representing the main two scoring systems at this time, The Open Championship Series and The United Scoring System. We have worked to bring you a list of which EPs will actively follow which scoring systems for the 2023-2024 season, as well as direct links to the scoring systems so you can find their rubrics, level appropriate documents, and score sheets. We also want to acknowledge the addition of the USASF Scoring System, but have only found one EP who has declared to follow this system (The Spirit Network)


The following programs offer their own unique scoring system that doesn’t directly align with either of the major systems: Spirit BrandsGlobal Cheer and DanceFun! Cheer and Diamond Cheer & Dance.
