    Click here to view Varsity All Star's updated 2012 - 2013 Scoring System!

    Building on the philosophy that 'Consistency is the key' to success, you'll notice NO changes were made to the actual Varsity All Star score sheet. In fact, very few changes were made to the minimum requirements at each level in each category.

    But what has changed is the amount of resources we've putting forward to help you understand your score. We've providing you with more details than ever, arming Coaches and Gym Owners with the blueprint to a successful competition season.

    COMING SOON - Varsity All Star SCORING WEBINARS!! These online tutorials will be FREE to Coaches and will focused on specific elements of the scoresheet and of your routine. We'll also address any up-to-the-minute scoring trends and issues taking place at Varsity All Star events. Stay Tuned...

    2012 HIGHLIGHTS
    DIFFICULTY RANGES - We took every 1-point range for Difficulty and broke it out even further into LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH ranges, setting black and white expectations for those teams trying to 'max out' their Difficulty score.

    TECHNIQUE SCORE - new range descriptions for the Technique score will help you better understand what process the judges went through before arriving at your Technique score.

    NEW! ELITE BUILDING SKILLS - In response to the ever-changing world of all star cheerleading, we've updated what Elite Skills are required of Level 5 teams to place them in the highest level appropriate range for Stunts. (also affects: new Advanced Skills for Level 4 and new Intermediate skills for Level 3).


    COED STUNTING - Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5 Senior coed teams are now expected to perform single based, unassisted stunts to be eligible for their Level Appropriate 1-point range. This new requirement excludes junior, youth and mini divisions, as well as all Level 5 Restricted divisions and Level 4.2)

    POINT DEDUCTIONS - You'll notice Time Limit deductions and Boundary Violations have been further clarified. We also reformatted all of the deductions, making them even easier to follow.

    I know Level 6 is kind of the red-headed step child of all-star cheerleading, but all our open team's competitions are Varsity Brand. No Scoring ranges for them?

    Ashley, we will be releasing Level 6 soon. It was more important to get the information released for Levels 1-5 in a timely manner (given choreography season is now in full swing) then to delay it for a short period while Level 6 was being updated. I'll post something here when Level 6 is ready.

    ASCheerMan Can you clarify under tosses where it says "front spots included". Is this saying that on a team of 20, you could still score in the high range with 4 baskets, or is it saying you need 5? Thanks! :)

    I read it, but am confused. For a level 3 is a round off back tuck now equal points to round off front walkover back handspring back tuck pass?

    Can someone post what deductions for falls/bobbles for stunts and tumbling used to be on the varsity sheet?

    Thanks :)

    Thankful that the scoring grids for Varsity are more specific. Just curious, this makes the scoring system much more objective than it's ever been. Is there going to be a process in place to ensure that these scores are tabulated correctly? In short, is there going to be any sort of review or double-check to ensure that skills are scored properly?

    I appreciate the unassisted coed section, but I'm not sure it went far enough. An elevator to the top where a guy just steps under it an holds it by himself for a second will be counted just as much as an unassisted toss heel stretch. I think all this does is make everyone do the bare minimum single based stunt in order to get in the range. ASCheerMan correct me if I'm wrong please.

    If the guy just steps underneath it when it's at the top, it's, by definition, "assisted." It's only unassisted if he tosses it to the top himself. That's understanding anyway.

    It says - any stunt whereas the top person is being held by a single base during a portion of the stunt sequence. The stunt must be held for an amount of time that proves the stunt groups ability to maintain the skill without assistance of additional bases and spotters.

    I don't understand why a level 3 team is expected to do an unassisted coed stunt, but a restricted level 5 team isn't? Or did I just read that wrong?
