Process

At the conclusion of each declared National Championship, the Event Producer will have to email their Level 6 and 7 Team results to Steve Peterson at speterson@usasf.net.
Note: For the purpose of the USASF Cheerleading Worlds Cup Race, with divisions that were combined, the Event Producer will enter the results as if the divisions were all separated.

The system will automatically calculate the points for each team. Points are calculated based on ranking and number of teams in the division. There will be a maximum of the 5 highest calculated scores per team. At the end of each week the current standings will be available to see on the USASF website.

At the end of March/early April, once the USASF Cheerleading Worlds Cup Race results are complete, the USASF will award three (3) Paid Cheerleading Worlds Bids to the Level 6 and/or 7 Teams with the three (3) highest point totals (Paid: 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd place teams) and (3) At Large Bids. If any team already has a Paid, the Cheerleading Worlds Paid Bid will go to the team with next highest score who does not already have a Paid Bid. If any team already has a Paid or At Large Bid, the At Large Bid will go to the next highest score.
