Age Grid, Rules & Scoring

We follow the IASF 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 IASF, 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 rule book.  However, division age ranges reflect the general structure of British and European squads, and are designed to allow all squad age ranges to compete.

Age Grid

From the 2018-2019 Season the BCA will be following the SportCheerUK Unified Divisions and Age Grid. You can download the latest version of the full grid using the link below.
 Please note: Not all divisions will be available at all events. Please check the individual competition pages for further information.
