Hello Coaches!
 
Boy are we glad to finally be able to send you some information regarding our fall event! There is a lot of information below, so please take some time to read through and feel free to contact me  with any questions! With the current state right now, we debated on what would best serve our teams, and landed on hosting an outdoor event focusing on GameDay. We know this isn’t our traditional competition, but we also know that many teams are not currently in a place where they are competing a 2 1/2 minute routine and this would allow all teams to highlight the amazing game material that they do week in and week out!
 
The NKCCA GameDay Competition will take place on Saturday, October 30th at Scott High School. We are planning for this event to start around 10am for planning purposes.This event will be for NKCCA teams only and will be free if they have paid for their 2021-2022 fees. If Rec teams or non member schools would like to participate, they will need to pay $35 NKCCA membership per team fee. If you still need to register for NKCCA membership please CLICK HERE to register.
 
We will offer the following divisions:
HS Small GameDay (enrollment less than 1299 students) with Music
HS Large GameDay (enrollment greater than 1300 students) with Music
HS Small GameDay (enrollment less than 1299 students) with NO MUSIC
HS Large GameDay (enrollment greater than 1300 students) with NO MUSIC
MS Small GameDay (15 or less athletes) with Music
MS Large Gameday (16 or more athletes) with Music
MS Small GameDay (15 or less athletes) with NO MUSIC
MS Large Gameday (16 or more athletes) with NO MUSIC
Rec Gameday Starters

Expo
 
We are offering divisions with NO MUSIC in the event that a team doesn’t have a band dance or a fight song. GameDay does require 2 sections of music. If you choose NO MUSIC, you will only be judged on a sideline cheer and floor cheer. We reserve the right to split up Middle School into smaller divisions if needed.
 
Please click the link below to register. Each team (example: Varsity, JV, etc) will need a seperate registration. NKCCA GameDay Registration
 
Enrollment will be based off of the KHSAA numbers. Please use the link below and use the column ENROLL4G for the accurate number: KHSAA ENROLLMENT
 
Use the link below to see the GameDay format, Skill restrictions, and other information. Please note this is all about fun so we will be lenient on the number of 8 counts for stunts and time limits of music. if you have questions about format, skills, etc, please reach out!
 
We are thrilled to be able to have something this fall in the event that we won’t be able to host our winter event on 1/29. This provides us with funds to be able to give YOUR athletes scholarships.
 
Thanks, Carly Leopold, NKCCA President

COMPETITION  The purpose of our NKCCA competitions are two-fold: 1) to allow our cheerleaders to exemplify their talents both on the court/field and in the classroom. 2) to generate revenue for the Association to offer its awards, benefits and miscellaneous activities throughout the year. The Association must approve all items sold or displayed at the competition. The competition is open to all member schools. The competition will award first and second place trophies and ribbons in the categories with at least 3 squads entered, otherwise only first place trophies and ribbons will be awarded. All-Star squad are exhibition only. FEES Squad fee -A non-refundable fee per participant per squad along with all roster and liability release forms are required. All late payments and forms may be assessed a late fee. Stunt fee -An additional non-refundable entry fee per group along with roster and liability release forms are required. All late payments and forms may be assessed a late fee. ROSTER Only cheerleaders listed on the roster sheet are eligible to participate. High School squad cheerleaders must be KHSAA, OHSAA, or IHSAA eligible and members of their school’s squad participating in all facets ( unless sidelined due to illness or injury). All other cheerleaders must also meet their school’s minimum academic requirements. Cheerleaders should be listed by squad and are allowed to participate with only the squad that has listed them on their roster for the competition. They can, however, be listed on more than one roster for that school (i.e. Varsity & JV). WAIVER FORMS All cheerleaders must have a waiver & release form completed before the competition begins. Waiver forms should be submitted with the roster and entry fee. JUDGES The judges will use a score sheet approved at the Fall coaches meeting. Judging fees are based on the number of participating squads and established by the Board. FORMAT/SCORING Squads may not tumble or stunt onto and off the floor. All National Federation restrictions apply. Squads may use megaphones, signs, and pompoms at any time. Other props may be deemed dangerous to the floor or to the other cheerleaders ( e.g., flags, boxes, etc.) and will not be allowed. Squads going over the time limit or using illegal props will be penalized 10 points for each. The deduction will be taken from the judges’ combined scores. SOUND SYSTEMThe Association will supply a sound system. Sound checks will be allowed only during a designated period, prior to the performances. Coaches are advised to bring 2 copies of their music. PRACTICE/FLOOR TIMES Floor times in an auxiliary area will be assigned based on the order of appearance. Squads will not be given another scheduled opportunity to stretch and warm up prior to the competition. For more information on  Rules and Performance Guidelines – click on the Rules tab
