USASF rules, divisions and categories help to create a safe, consistent and fair platform for cheer and dance athletes at All Star events and practices. Safety, followed by skill progression and fair play, is the top priority when setting or adjusting any rule or guideline. The USASF also establishes guidelines for best practices in areas of All Star not directly involved with safety rules, but important to the integrity of the sport.

The rules change process for USASF Cheer and Dance is consistent from season to season. For transparency and education about involvement in the rules process, please read each step below.

The USASF reinforces its rules and safety guidelines through coach credentialing to ensure that cheer coaches are proficient in teaching appropriate skill progressions and safety judge certification that equips safety judges with the knowledge and resources to enforce safety rules during competition.
