Music:
ACP will follow the Varsity Spirit Music Guidelines for all competitions. Please visit varsity.com/music for the most up-to-date guidelines and latest resources.

  1. You must provide a representative from your program to play music.

  2. We will NOT provide CD players. We will require playing music from MP3 player or phone (MUST be in airplane/do not disturb mode).

  3. We highly recommend using an iPod or other music-playing device without cellular connection for music playback. Avoiding using a cellular phone during performances is best, however if this is a must follow these tips:

  • Use a phone with a headphone jack. The newest phones, including the iPhone 7, 8, 10 and Samsung Galaxy S7 do not have headphone jacks and this can cause issues during playback.

  • Take off the case! Failure to do so may disconnect the phone jack from the playback system causing a skip in the music or complete cut off.

  • Make sure the device is turned on airplane mode.

  • Download the music directly to the device and play using the playback software. Using a secondary platform, online services, or streaming music can cause disruptions during playback due to internet connections within convention centers and venues.

  • Update the Operating System on the device. Failure to do so may cause interruptions during playback.

NOTE: If there is a music interruption that occurs during a performance and is the fault of YOUR adapter or equipment, you will NOT be able to do your routine again. Music interruption that is due to the fault of OUR equipment, will be addressed immediately by the event official and you will be able to do your Routine, full out, in its entirety again.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENT:  Teams must be able to provide proof of music licensing in the form of a printed copy at registration upon check in at the event.
