All Star Cheer
All Star Cheer differs from traditional school cheerleading in that its primary purpose is competition, while school cheer involves crowd leading and other school roles as well as the option for competition. All Star cheer teams are most often organized and based out of a club and have teams who are open to all area athletes.
Teams are formed based on tiers for every ability level, from beginner to elite. All Star rules are leveled based on progressions of skills commonly performed in cheerleading and that are developmentally appropriate for the age of the competitor. Teams range from Tiny Novice Level 1 up to adults at Level 7.
In the United States, most All Star clubs, teams, and competitions are under the umbrella of our member organization, the United States All Star Federation (USASF), which includes All Star dance as well. Many times, one club offers both All Star cheer and All Star dance. USASF provides rules, training, credentialing, and information for athletes, coaches, parents and clubs at usasf.net.
