    CHEERSPORT will certainly be surprised and upset if we run out of jackets. We use our past experience and statistical analysis to order what we believe to be more jackets in every style and size than we will need The jackets are ordered six months in advance, well before teams are registered. Unfortunately, occasionally an anomaly takes place (unusual registration pattern, unexpected division splits, etc.) and we make a mistake. We obviously order a significant number of extras but in some rare cases we run out of a size or two. When that happens, we work diligently to get jackets to the athletes that didn’t get them at Nationals as quickly as possible. We apologize to anyone who has been disappointed in the past and hope you know the last thing we ever want to do is have one of our National Champions leave Atlanta without the award they have earned.

    Just FYI, the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be going on at Philips Arena the whole weekend and a professional bull riding event will be at the Georgia Dome on Saturday. The entire area will be a zoo. You can't even imagine the traffic. Plan to get to the GWCC early!

    Yes you will! As long as you have pre-purchased. I did it last year and will do it again this year.

    Our team was literally the last team called at the last awards last year. They had run out. They got them (what seemed like forever later) It was close to June.

    Not that it mattered we had kids wearing them....in June.... :)

    Where you have to get a tag and put it in your laces in order to be allowed in to the comp and warmups.

    At Cheersport, you just have to be in uniform and they let you in.

    We get a shoe tag comp every once in awhile. I feel like they were more common a couple years ago.

    1. The parking available on-line is close and covered
    2. This parking will no longer be available when we arrive on Saturday and Sunday
    3. It most likely will be cold and dark when we leave the competition.
    4. You’ll be happy you did this!
    5. Directions- Index
    1. Click on the “P” for online parking permits
    2. Select General Admission
    3. Select Cheersport 2012 National Championships
    4. Select Saturday and Sunday 2/18-19
    5. Indicate how many cars you are purchasing 2-day Red Deck parking for (Red Deck is the only one currently listed, this is the best spot!)
    6. Complete payment
    7. Print your Permit
    8. Put a note on your calendar that your paid parking permit is in your car’s glove compartment
    9. Put It In Your Car’s Glove Compartment
