Split/Merge Guidelines

Divisions may be split/combined, as described in the SportCheer UK Age Grid guidelines.

Crossovers

An athlete cannot crossover onto more than 2 cheer teams (a maximum of 3 cheer teams total) at each event. An athlete can compete in no more than 6 routines in total at each ICE event (inclusive of cheer, dance, stunt group and solos). The ICE Rink tournament is not included in these totals.

Note:

  • Athletes may not crossover between different size teams in cheer divisions within the same age and level, regardless of the mandatory split guidelines. E.g., an athlete may compete on only one All Star Elite Cheer Youth 1 team. This does not apply to dance. E.g., an athlete may compete on both small junior pom and large junior pom.
  • Novice athletes may not cross over to All Star Prep, All Star Elite or IASF International Cheer teams at the same event. They may crossover into Level 0 cheer teams. (The only novice cheer division offered at ICE this season is Tiny Novice).
  • All Star Prep athletes may not cross over to Novice, All Star Elite or IASF International Cheer teams at the same event. They may crossover into Level 0 cheer teams.
  • Crossovers are NOT permitted between Level 0 and All Star Elite cheer divisions levels 1+ or IASF Cheer divisions at the same event. Crossovers are permitted between Level 0 and Novice/Prep.
  • An athlete MAY crossover from All Star to International.
  • An athlete may crossover between Level 0 cheer to Stunt Group divisions (any level).
