In the middle of the ongoing cheerleading season, the USASF (U.S. All Star Federation) has released a few upcoming changes for the 2024-2025 season. These include major changes and have naturally caught the attention of the industry, sparking discussions. Let’s see what these changes are!

3 major changes

The early release contains several changes, but three ones stand out the most so far:

1. All International divisions require a minimum of 16 athletes.

This means all international teams will have to consist of at least 16 athletes, compared to the requirement of 10 as per the 23/24 rules.

2. International Global Level 6 and International Global Coed Level 6 will no longer be offered.

Following last year’s removal of Senior Open divisions, the plan is to remove the Global divisions – currently home to teams like Top Gun GLOC, Cali Smoed, Stingrays Electric, and teams around the world.

3. International Open NT Level 7 and International Open Coed NT Level 7 will be offered through USASF CHEER and are Worlds-eligible divisions.

Meaning teams from the United States will also be able to join and compete in these divisions, which they currently can’t do.

Disclaimer + where to find

Note that some changes as subject to change, as per the document: “NOTE: The Early Release is intended to provide divisions and ages in time for clubs to plan for the upcoming season. The policies of the Age Grid and Rules that are not included in the Early Release are subject to review and may be updated by the Final Release.”
