Safety Rules & Scoring

We follow the USASF Cheer & Dance Rules

Performing a technique outside the boundaries of your division level will incur a penalty as per the Scoring Guidelines.  BCA's Competition Rules and Safety Guidelines comply with the technical and safety aspects of USASF, as applicable to UK duty of care compliance.  You are expected to be conversant with the rules and safety requirements.  Wherever possible all rules are quoted exactly as the rulebook.  However, division age ranges reflect the general structure of British and European squads, and are designed to allow all squad age ranges to compete.
