Our Warm Up Area is National Federation Approved!

November 11, 2011
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (February 14, 2011) — The new high school spirit rules changes approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Spirit Rules Committee at its January 8-10 meeting minimize the risk potential created by certain performance surfaces, props or stunts. The changes, which were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors, will take effect with the 2011-12 school year.
One of the most significant changes deals with allowable stunts on a basketball court or track. Changes to Rules 2-6-7, 2-9-7 and 2-10-2 require that any airborne twisting tumbling skills, basket tosses, elevator tosses or similar multi-base tosses and twisting dismounts take place only on grass (real or artificial) or a mat.
Similarly, twisting during quick/load-in tosses is restricted to grass (real or artificial) or a mat per changes made to Rule 2-10-7.


Our History

Over 30,000 cheerleaders, both boys and girls, have competed over the past three decades at the annual late-January Championship, which includes a Senior Individual Competition (initiated in 1982), where 12th graders display their talent separate from their squad performances. In 1990, the Sister Marlene McQueeney Memorial Scholarship was instituted for a graduating senior cheerleader with at least a 3.50 GPA.

Val Snelgrove (Greece Olympia H.S. coach) and Debbie Smith (Edison Tech coach) began the Championship in 1978 under the name of The Monroe County Cheerleading Championship, with 30 squads (350 individuals) competing at Greece Athena. Cheryl Johnson (Greece Olympia JV coach) replaced Smith as co-Director in 1984; and, because of the need for more space (50 squads a year competing), the event was moved to SUNY Brockport in 1988 and renamed The Greater Rochester Cheerleading Championship.

In 1990, due to overflow numbers of competitors and spectators, the Championship moved to its present location at Blue Cross Arena (then known as the Rochester War Memorial). On its 15th annniversary in 1992, the event honored Bishop Kearney H.S. as its "Team of the Decade" for its many Championship successes. The 1994 competition was the Championship's first year with over 1000 cheerleaders and included 70 squads, 90 Senior Individual Competitors, and a most-gratifying 2,600 spectators.

We've continued to grow and evolve into a nationally recognized competition. We expect to have over 1,800 cheerleaders and dancers this year as well as close to 5,000 spectators!
