BACKGROUND
The Cheer Canada judging committee in consultation with the Cheer Canada scholastic committee and the Cheer Canada board researched, analyzed
and prepared the score sheets to be used for the new scholastic divisions. Key factors considered were to ensure the score sheet would:
·    allow teams to be evaluated effectively and ranked correctly,
·    allow coaching and judging education to be ready for the 2018-2019 season,
·    allow safe progression within the divisions by allowing flexibility in difficulty of the skills,
·    reduce the number of changes for teams competing within Canada when they compete at the ICU World School Cheerleading Championships, and
·    include scoring for a mandatory cheer component to correspond with the new CC requirements.

After evaluating primary score sheets currently being used, including Varsity All Star, the Cheer Canada 2017-2018 with cheer component and the ICU
school score sheet, it was determined to make modifications to the CC score sheet based on the following rationale:
 ·     providing us an opportunity to train our own judges and not rely solely on a third party.
 ·     bridge the gap between what is done currently in Canada and what is required at the world’s level. Transitioning from not requiring a cheer (or
       having its value only be 5%) to competing at the ICU World School Cheerleading Championships where the cheer value is 30% was a large factor.
 ·     in 2017-2018 CC score sheets emphasized degree of difficulty in skills as it was weighted heavier in building, pyramid and tumbling (this was a
       change from 2016-2017 which had degree of difficulty and technique weight equally). The judging committee actually felt at the school levels that
       technique should be valued higher than degree of difficulty.
 ·     by using our own score sheets we would have the flexibility to increase requirements at later score sheet cycles if needed to better reflect the
       level of skills demonstrated within Canada.
 ·     the full flexibility in ranges at the ICU school sheet would be a very large shift for judges and had what we perceived to be the largest amount of
       subjectivity without clear guidelines for coaches. This system we felt at this time would be a very difficult shift in a short period of time to
       implement for the 2018-2019 season.

The committee decided the weight of each section should be based on what was felt best for progression of our athletes, their current ability and ease
of transition between competitions at the global stage. The key take-away was the emphasis on technique; increased value for performance and the
largest change was for tosses. It was decided that tosses should be included in building if they were to be performed. This was decided as there are some
school districts that do not allow tosses which adds a barrier for those teams at competition, and that schools may not have the time to safely teach
these release skills. Therefore, in line with ICU School, it was decided to include them in the building components of the routine to allow for maximum
flexibility for school programs. As a result, this has lead from the increased requirements of 4 level appropriate building skills from 2017-2018 to 5 level
appropriate building skills in 2018-2019. Due to the extremely small weight of the jump difficulty score it was decided that this would merely be a
requirement. The jump difficulty score would be “5” if the requirement is met and “3.5” if the requirement is not met.

Cheer Canada will be hosting webinars for Cheer Canada members to assist with the transition.

While the total score is out of 100, your effective score is the difference between the lowest possible score and the highest possible score. For school
divisions that variation is 30 (26 for non tumbling). The purpose of this table is to demonstrate the relative importance of each element to one another
in a competition environment. The second table includes the divisions available for which grades.

RULES
   • Rules followed for 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 seasons are the ICU School Rules. A copy created with permission from the ICU can be
      found here: http://www.cheerleadingcanadainc.com/school-rule-book/

DIVISIONS
   • Divisions for Game Day and Advanced Non Tumbling are offered for grades 9-12 only.
   • The team size is 5 – 30. NOTE: team size may be different at events outside of Canada. Please consult rules for other events your
       team may be attending.



                                                                                                                v. 20180820    Page 4 of 12

CONSULT YOUR PROVINCIAL ASSOCIATION FOR:
  • Verification of the breakdowns of grades. As some provinces or regions have slight variations your PSO will have further clarification
     on the grade divisions in your area.
  • The provincial policy for school athlete eligibility.
         o The recommendation is that athletes must attend the school they are representing. Provincial policies may include
            exceptions for schools which do not offer a team or feeder schools.
            The recommendation is that athletes may compete on both a school team and with an all star program unless where
            prohibited due to provincial regulation.

TIME LIMITS
   • For a team cheer routine the cheer portion must be a minimum of thirty seconds (:30) at the beginning or middle of the routine. The
       total routine length may not exceed two minutes and thirty seconds (2:30).
   • For Game Day each element is between thirty seconds (:30) to one minute (1:00) each with a break between each element.

UNPLANNED ATHLETE REPLACEMENTS
  • A program may replace a missing member of a team with another athlete from their program even if not listed on the event’s
     Official Event Roster.
  • If the replacement does not meet the age requirements for that division then the team’s performance will be for exhibition only.
  • A team is limited to a maximum of 3 unplanned athlete replacements at an event. If a team requires more than 3 replacements the
     team’s performance will be for exhibition only.

GENERAL
   • REMINDER: School Advanced and Junior Advanced ICU are different. In this document “Advanced” refers to School Advanced.
   • Creativity is not split between stunt and pyramid creativity. Creativity is assessed with routine composition.
   • An individual athlete is limited to compete on three teams during an event (between all star and scholastic where applicable).
   • The cheer component may be in English or French.
   • Scoring is in increments of 0.1 (a tenth of a point).
   • The Level Appropriate Skills chart includes examples of level appropriate skills that may be performed, but does not encompass
     every skill that may be performed. Coaches are responsible for ensuring any skill performed in their routine are compliant with the
     safety rules.
