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)
How is warm up set up and how long does my team get?
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.
What do I do if I have cross overs with teams on the floor and teams in warm up?
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.
Are coaches allowed free entry?
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.
