  • How is the stipend amount determined?
    • Stipend amounts and determinations vary by market. Please contact us for specific questions on how your market’s stipends are determined. Locations are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Please note your course location requests in your online application
  • How are teams judged?
    • Teams are judged based on creativity, participation, and enthusiasm!
  • Why is there no prize money in Denver, or Brooklyn?
    • There is no prize money for the top three schools due to either city or local school rules that prohibit us from doing so.
  • What Should Cheer Teams wear?
    • If you are in season and school, city and state laws permit you to wear your uniform on the day of the event, please plan to wear your school uniform. If your team is out of season and does not have uniforms, or you are not permitted to wear them, we encourage you to create a fun theme and have fun with your outfits. Tie Dyes are always a hit and is a fun team bonding activity.
  • Why is Las Vegas not listed?
    • Due to the Las Vegas event being at night and for the safely of the teams we will not have cheerleaders on the course.
