UPON ARRIVAL AT WORLDS
The USASF Image Policy is strictly enforced for all participating athletes.
Cover Ups must be worn at all times except when warming up and competing as outlined in the USASF Image Policy.
Organized practices at The Cheerleading and Dance Worlds (all locations):
A USASF/IASF Eligible Coach facilitating a practice with members of the registered team is allowed to authorize removal of the cover up for an organized practice.
Eligible Coaches who oversee such practices must advise and enforce the cover up policy immediately following the conclusion of the organized practice.
Athletes must practice and perform on an appropriate surface. Technical skills (stunts, pyramids, tosses or tumbling) may not be performed on concrete, asphalt, wet or uneven surfaces or surfaces with obstructions.
USASF Staff and Officials will be diligent at enforcing this rule in all areas of the event, including, but not limited to the areas of all on-property resorts, competition venues and surrounding areas. As a general guideline, coaches must be diligent in examining any area and/or surface which they may have their team use to practice any skills or routines in full. If a coach chooses to practice on a grass covered surface, they must make sure it is free of moisture and provides an even surface. Teams may not stunt or tumble on any unapproved surface.
An overlay of carpeting over concrete does not constitute an appropriate surface. As a rule of thumb, the surface must have mats or be a perfectly flat, unobstructed, moisture free grass area.
Any team found in violation of this guideline is subject to fines, penalties, deductions, disqualification, sanctions and/or membership revocation.
The IASF WORLDS competition follows the music guidelines set forth by USA CHEER. When attending IASF WORLDS please make sure your team and/or program is following these guidelines. To learn more about these guidelines CLICK HERE and to find music providers CLICK HERE.
