NEW! Updates for the 2020 Indiana Cheer Championship

Based on questions and feedback from coaches, as well as discussions with other state executives and organizations, we have made the decision to remove all previously announced restrictions from teams as it relates to stunting and tossing (middle schools are still not permitted to toss) for 2020. These restrictions were initially put in place as a safety measure since teams had lost 2 months of summer practice time, and some concerns had been presented regarding the ability to safely learn and execute the skills in such a short amount of time. However, through these recent conversations, we feel more comfortable allowing these skills to be performed given the remaining practice time available for teams before our contests take place.

Since this year’s contest will be held virtually in your school building, any decision to restrict certain skills will now come from your school’s administration. Coaches, please schedule a time to talk with your Athletic Director and other administrators in your school to determine what your school’s requirements may be for practice and competition.

In regards to the mask mandate that is currently in place for Indiana (extended through September 25th), our position is not changing. We have not required masks for teams, but have strongly encouraged that all teams wear them as we all continue to work to end the spread of the pandemic. Please refer to your school/athletic department guidelines on wearing masks during your cheer activities.
