Legality Officials play an integral role at USASF sanctioned events by ensuring fair competition for all participants. Much like a referee in a basketball game or an umpire in baseball, Legality Officials bring legitimacy and integrity to the sport by enforcing the rules of All Star.
Note: Legality Officials are not scoring judges as the USASF does not certify, train nor govern any aspect of competition scoring.
USASF Legality Officials come from all walks of life. While not required, most individuals have been competitive cheerleaders or dancers themselves and officiating is a great way to stay involved in the sport. We simply require that Legality Officials be at least 18 years of age and of the highest moral and ethical standards.
Becoming a USASF Legality Official takes training, practice and dedication. Travel is often required and the work hours are long and typically on the weekends. But officiating is a fulfilling way to stay actively involved in All Star and rewarding to know that you’re helping athletes pursue their dreams. You’ll be able to share your knowledge, develop friendships and make connections with others committed to creating a positive All Star experience.
When you become a Legality Official you’ll receive a complimentary USASF membership which provides access to the large network of USASF sanctioned events hosted by our Event Producer members. Additionally, you’ll be able to use the USASF membership system to indicate your interest and availability to work the events they host.
Disclosure: Payment for services is exclusively between the Event Producer and Legality Official. Many competition travel expenses and meals are typically covered by the Event Producer. Legality Officials are not paid for their services nor travel through the USASF.
