With the unofficial
first week of the Competition Season upon us, there's a
lot going on in the world of all star cheer. Below are a
few noteworthy updates....
Scoring FAQ's -
To view some of the highlights from the Facebook Scoring
Q&A that took place a few weeks ago,
CLICK HERE. This document is also being shared
with our judges as an additional training tool. Remember,
there is no 'secret scoring guide' or 'underground
rubric.' In the spirit of transparency, Varsity All Star
judges and coaches are given the same information.
Tumbling Update - In addition to the minor tweaks
made to the Scoring Rubric earlier this month (which can
be found by
CLICKING HERE), we've decided to relax our Running
Tumbling requirement. Coaches and Athletes alike should
celebrate to know that individual level appropriate
skills within the tumbling pass
will count - instead of defining the entire pass as just
one skill - when determining your Running Tumbling
subrange in L1-L4 (i.e. a whip through to layout pass and
a punch front step out through to layout pass now both
count as two skills instead of one).
Varsity All Star Announcement -
Newby sent out an exciting email earlier this week
regarding the USASF Board, to read his letter,
. There have been several moments in the
short history of the USASF that have made me proud to be a
part of the organization and a part of Varsity, and this
is one of them!
That's all for
today (probably). Have a great week. And for those of
you competing with WSF, American Cheer Power, or
CHEERSPORT this weekend, GOOD LUCK. The competition
season has arrived!
