Upcoming Conferences & Workshops


The IASP Department of Student Programs is dedicated to helping Indiana cheerleading coaches keep updated on the current rules.

July 16, 2022 – Virtual – Register Now!
(registration is still open if you would like to receive the conference recording and materials)


In 2021, we discontinued the live webinar meetings that provided rules updates to coaches. Instead, we are now providing the recording from the conference in this space for coaches to reference as they need to. Teams competing in the 2022 Indiana Cheer Championship will still need to verify that they have viewed the rules update, and this will be done through a verification form in the competition registration packet.
