BOUNDARY VIOLATIONS- .25
The performance surface is defined as the 42’ x 54’ competition floor. The competition boundary is defined as the performance surface and any immediate adjacent safety border. A .25 deduction will be assessed per occurrence for an athlete that makes contact with both feet outside the competition boundary. Stepping on, or just past the white tape is not a boundary violation.
TIME LIMIT VIOLATIONS – .25
Teams that exceed 2:30 will be subject to the following deduction:
• 1 or more seconds over time will result in a .25 deduction
The routine time limit is 2:30. Routines that exceed this time limit run a risk of being assessed a deduction. Judges will use a stop watch or similar device to measure the official time. Acknowledging the potential variance caused by human reaction speed and sound system time variations, judges will not issue a deduction until their stopwatch/clock shows a time that exceeds 2:33. Entrances and Exits are not timed. However, timing does begin with the first organized movement or beat of music. Any organized entrances/exits will be timed. This includes team breaks, rituals, chants etc.
- 0.50 – Tumbling skills performed out of level and General Safety Guidelines will be issued a 0.50 deduction.
- 1.0 – Building skills performed out of level will be issued a 1.0 deduction.
IMAGE POLICY – .25
Inappropriate choreography and/or music, as well as violations that break the image policy will be issued a .25 deduction.
UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT DEDUCTION – 1.0
When a coach is in discussion with an official, other coaches, athletes and parents/spectators they must maintain proper professional conduct. Failing to do so may result in a 2.0 deduction, removal of coach, or disqualification.
Judges may issue a warning instead of a deduction if it is not clear that the rule violation had occurred or if it was a performance error vs, an obvious rule violation. This is up to the safety judges discretion and may not be argued.
Performers can only participate in 3 total specialty divisions due to scheduling and costuming issues.

This upcoming 16-17 Cheer and Dance Season, if you plan on attending any cheerleading or dance event, you will need to supply music that complies with the new music guidelines. The new music guidelines state that due to copyright infringement concerns, cheer and dance music producers can no longer create or edit cheer music with popular songs (unless they obtain all necessary licenses from all parties involved, which is expensive and time consuming). The music guidelines state that cover recordings of popular music may be used in remixes only of the purchase and license of the cover recording includes an explicit right to alter the cover recordings and create new works from these cover recording elements.
A. Create your own original songs for your cheer mix.
B. Bring a legally purchased copy of a popular song, from I-tunes, Amazon, etc. The song may not be remixed in any way (no sound effects, tempo changes and or layering with another recording) but timing edits are allowed only. Ie, removing a chorus or bridge to the length of the team’s performance.
C. Purchase a custom made mix created by a music producer that will license your music.
We will require that you have a copy of the license to show that your music follows the copyright laws.
Champion Cheer Central Inc recommends Full Out Music Productions!
FULL OUT Music Productions offers you Custom & Premade original cheer music! Appropriate for all ages and levels: industry-leading vocals, a vast library of original beats and royalty-free music will give you a once-in-a-nation sound. Go FULL OUT every time!

Meet CCC’s April Spotlight Team.
XCel Athletics Mini Level 1
How does this team start their season? The season started last May and Force has been practicing together ever since!
How long has the team been cheering together? Some of the athletes on this team have been teammates for 3 or more years. They’ve created really great bonds which allow them to work together so well.
What is your favorite part about being a team member on Xcel’s Mini L1?
My favorite part of Xcel mini force is my very nice coach and the best teammates ever. Bella
Best part of mini 1 Force is my coach, Coach Gianna. Adwen
Being a leader and having fun with the other minis Brianna
My favorite part about being on xcel mini level 1 is how much our team has grown and how our friendships have grown. When I joined mini level one I didn’t know anybody and now my teammates are like my best friends. I like mini level one because the older teams are always cheering us on. My team is crazy and silly but we always compete fierce!!!! Avery
Accomplishments this 14 – 15 Season: Mini force level 1 has had an amazing year! Placing first on November 2 at CCC’s event. Placing first, level 1 champions, grand champions, and best choreography at CCC’s over the rainbow competition on March 15. On April 12th they attended CCC’s Lake Erie nationals where they placed first out of nine and also won grand champions. Their last competition on April 18th they also placed first and were the highest score in the mini and youth level one division.
What rituals does this team have before taking the floor at an event? To prepare the team for each competition we practice how we will compete. We start off with running stunts and then warming up our tumbling to ready us for the “full outs” the athletes will do. They also condition to build their stamina so they can perform flawlessly! For the last practice before a competition they will often circle up and pray to hit a perfect routine.
We say our chant “I believe we can win”. We are the hardest workers and best listeners. Bella
Before each event we run ALOT of full outs which help us make the routine clean. Before we go on stage we chant “I believe that we will hit” and spell out FORCE. Brianna
Coaches Favorite Part of the Routine: As a coach my favorite part of their routine is the dance. After I have watched my athletes hit perfectly, it is so much fun to cheer them on while they are excited about their accomplishment. Team force has so much fun in their dance and as a coach I love to cheer them on!
Xcel Mini Athletes Favorite Part of the Routine:
My favorite part of the routine is being the tumble bunny. Bella
My favorite part of the routine is elite. I like pulling my bow and arrow. Adwen
I really like all the tumbling passes! Brianna
I have two favorite parts in our routine. The tumbling we do is one part and my second favorite part is our opening 2 man heal stretch stunt. Avery
We asked the athletes what they look forward to most in the season?
Having fun! Learning new tumbling! Bella
Any other comments you would like to share about your team/coaches?
It was such a privilege to coach this great group of amazing athletes. It is sad to see the season come to an end but the memories I’ve made will last a life time. All the tears, sweat, and bear crawls paid off in the long run and made this team successful. They can do anything they put their mind to and I can’t wait to see each child grow. Thank you mini team Force for making it a wonderful season! Coach Gianna
Coach Gianna was a great coach. I like everybody on my team. They are so good. Adwen
We go through a lot of conditioning but it pays off. Coach Gianna pushes us to our limits and makes us a better team and gives us confidence to compete. Brianna
