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 and three (3) At-Large Cheerleading Worlds Bids to the Level 5 and 6 Teams with the six (6) highest point totals (Paid: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams / At-Large: 4th, 5th and 6th place teams). If any team already has a Paid or At-Large Bid, the Cheerleading Worlds Bid will go to the team withnext highest score.
