Cheer & Dance Championship Overview

The Cheer & Dance Championships consist of approximately 400+ teams competing this year at the HP Field House. Cheer & Dance teams compete in eight YCADA Divisions (PW 1, PW 2, PW 3, PW4, Sideline Performance Cheer, Pom Performance, Hip Hop and Theme Dance).

They are also classified by age division:

  • Jr. Pee Wee
  • Pee Wee
  • Jr. Varsity
  • Varsity

This year's Cheerleading Championships will further sub-divide by size, and feature competitions in the SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE divisions:

  • Small Teams: 5-10 cheerleaders
  • Medium Teams: 11-20 cheerleaders
  • Large Teams: 21-35 cheerleaders

Also, for the seventh straight year, participants from the Pop Warner Mitey-Mite Division will be performing on the opening day of the event on Saturday, December 1, 2018, along with teams from the Tiny-Mite Division.

For a cheerleading or dance team, the difficult road to the national championship is quite similar to that of the football teams. A spirit team will showcase their best 2:30 routine at the League Championship, the top two teams in each division advance to the Region Championships.

At the Region Event, a spirit team will again perform their routine in hopes of placing first or second in their respective division to be invited to perform at ESPNs Wide World of Sports Complex.

The 2018 Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships are taking place from Saturday, December 1st through Friday, December 7th at ESPN's Wide World of Sports™ Complex.
