Dance Rankings

Here’s how it works:

USASF cheer and dance teams competing in USASF Sanctioned Competitions receive points based on division size and placement. The top-100-ranked teams are posted each week with their total accumulated points. At the end of the season, the top 10 teams in each division will be awarded ribbons. Teams placing first also will receive championship banners!

Who is eligible?
  • USASF cheer teams (elite, non-Worlds levels 1-6, D1 and D2)
  • USASF dance teams (elite, non-Worlds divisions and categories)
  • All USASF Sanctioned Competitions
When?

September 1, 2021 – May 23, 2022

What is the process?

Within 72 hours of each USASF Sanctioned Competition, event producers provide placements for qualifying teams. For the Elite Power Rankings report, divisions are not split by size, coed or all-girl unless already split on the USASF age grid. If divisions are combined placements are reported as if the divisions were not combined (ranking is reported based on a team’s official USASF roster).

Example: If two Youth Small Jazz teams and one Youth Large Jazz team are combined to create a Youth Jazz division with three teams, the two Youth Small Jazz teams will be ranked first and second place and the one Youth Large Jazz team will be ranked first.  

The USASF Elite Power Rankings calculates points for each team based on placement and the number of teams in each division.

  2. Teams placing 10th and beyond at a competition will each earn 10 points.
  3. A team can earn a maximum of 100 points at a single competition, regardless of the number of teams in a division.
  4. A team can earn a minimum of 10 points at a single competition.
  5. Teams earn points based on placement in their rostered division and category, not how they ranked in a combined division.
  6. There is no maximum number of events in which a team may participate and earn points.
What about multi-brand, season-end competitions?
  • Teams participating in a multi-brand, season-end competition will receive 50 bonus points in addition to their competition ranking points.
  • Competitions must take place between March 15-May 23, 2022.
  • Competitions must have three or more USASF event producers partnered to send teams and/or produce the competition.
