What began in 2004 as a modest competition featuring 14 outstanding cheer teams has grown into the premier international championship for All Star teams with over 13,500 participating athletes. Worlds now features champion titles in the top Senior and International club divisions and categories. Today, more than 120 USASF and IASF event producers from over 40 countries qualify their best teams to compete at The Cheerleading Worlds.
The participating event producers are united around the concept of a single, high profile event that celebrates the highest skill and performance routines in All Star Cheer. The Cheerleading Worlds is to All Star what the World Series is to baseball or the Superbowl is to NFL Football.
It is the single event that annually determines which team claims World titles.
All event producers hosting All Star competitions are invited to join the USASF and offer a path for teams to qualify for The Cheerleading Worlds.
All USASF Event Producer Members have the option to award Cheerleading or Dance Worlds Bid Boosts at any of their USASF Sanctioned Events during the 2021-22 season. Worlds Bid Boosts are cash prizes awarded by the Event Producer to any USASF member program’s cheer or dance team that has already earned a 2022 Worlds At Large, Partial Paid, or Paid Bid. A maximum of $100 per athlete/per team may be awarded by an Event Producer during the season (the Bid Boost is only applicable to the number of athletes on the floor at the qualifying event).
