Athletic Performance Standards

The USASF Steering Committee for the Athletic Performance Standards has developed, in partnership with industry providers who are committed to presenting All Star in a way that celebrates both the athleticism and creativity, has created this APS Tip Sheet for All Star Cheer Club Owners to ensure the Athletic Performance Standards are met by the teams representing their club.

NOTE: The Athletic Performance Standards is designed specifically for cheer teams at this time. For All Star Dance, please refer to Page 1 of the Dance Rules: Choreography, Music and Costuming. Our goal is to ensure the protection of all athletes. It is the responsibility of the club owner to ensure that rules are adhered to and that the overall intended look is age-appropriate.
