Entering a competition can seem daunting, and it is normal for you to have questions, so we do our best so make sure you have all of the information you need. If you can’t find the answer to your question, feel free to send us a message and ask!
We welcome ALL teams to our competitions and have divisions for all levels too. Your first competition is something you and your team will never forget and would be very happy to welcome you to our events.
No we don’t publish scores for all to see, however scores will be available for coaches to look at for their own personal use on the day of the event and score sheets will be given on the day also.
This is dependent on the division you enter. For group stunt: minimum 4, maximum 5. For cheerleading: minimum 5, maximum 32. All dance (pom, hip-hop, jazz): minimum 4, maximum 32. (See division information for more information)
Warm up consists of 3 stations. The first allows you to warm up your team with stretches and a mark through of your routine. Warm up 1 does not have a matted floor so stunts are not permitted. Warm up 2 gives you and your team a chance to run your routine fully with a sound system and matted floor. Warm Up 3 is a tumble strip to warm up/practice tumbles. Each team is given a time to arrive at warm up and is allowed an allocated amount of time depending on the category being entered.
We do our best to make sure that this does not happen. However if this is the case please warm up both teams at the same time and the Event Crew in warm up will do their best to give extra time for both teams to have a fair run through. We can also suggest sending teams to warm up with a parent helper or assistant coach. This way it allows the coach to be with the team on the floor and your other team to be in warm up at their allocated time.
We allocate 1 free coach pass per every 20 competitors. If you require additional passes they can be purchased at £10 which will give coaches access for the whole event.
A child ticket is for children between the age of 3 and 12, under 3 go free and above 12 need to purchase an adult spectator ticket.
Spectator tickets are sold via coaches or dance teachers. ICE runs sessions for spectators. The sessions for each event may differ, please ask coaches for more information on sessions. If you are a coach up to date information on sessions will be released in the information group on facebook.
Our 2 day events do not have onsite accommodation. However, we always book venues with hotels nearby so teams do not have to travel far. If you would like more information on this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, outstanding competition images and DVD are produced by Believe Photography. They work closely with us at ICE to produce high quality, affordable images to let you remember the day. Team photos, individual images and on floor pictures will be available to buy and take home on the day. The event DVD will also be available to order at the competition. We do not allow photography around Believe and we do not allow you to use their backdrop for personal use.
Our events judges are experienced in the cheer and dance world. They are experts in the field and mark strictly to USASF rules. Scores given on the day are final and if you have a question about your score please speak to the head judge at the event or contact email@example.com. Feedback is also offered at the events which allows you to have time to speak to judges and find out what was good and what could be improved in your routine. This may help you understand your scores in more depth.
Please bring your music on a CD or on a device which connects via an aux lead. We recommend having team’s music saved on multiple devices including a phone, laptop or tablet.
