Our Cheer & Dance Events are split into sessions. Spectators need a ticket for whichever sessions/s they wish to attend. We intend for coaches and athletes to be able to access the whole event, however, depending on government guidance nearer the time it may become necessary to reserve a spot in advance for any athletes who want to watch a session they’re not competing in.
Please see the Divisions, Crossovers & Time Limits page for full details of which divisions are available at which events this season. A summary is as follows:
Note divisions may be split/combined as per the SportCheer UK Age Grid guidelines.

Once you’ve emailed us your registration form, you’ll need to get ready to make a payment. Registration forms are accepted in Excel format only (not pdf, numbers, odo, or any other file type) so if you don’t have Excel just contact us in advance and we’ll provide an online version of the registration form specific to you.
We’ll need to receive a correct and legal registration form by midnight on any deadline for you to receive the applicable pricing for the contents of your form, so please plan accordingly. Any extra items added after a deadline are subject to the current pricing. To avoid disappointment, please remember to include your spectator ticket order on your registration form, as tickets are always subject to availability (and we may not accept entries submitted without a spectator order if we believe the event may sell out).
ICE will then email you an invoice, which will state your payment terms. To receive the pricing stated on the invoice, please ensure payment is made by the date stated on the invoice, otherwise the next price bracket may be applied. Please do not send any payment before receiving an invoice; sending payment without an invoice does not secure any order.
