NYSCJA Safety Reporting

NYSCJA Rules Infraction Reporting Form

  • Safety judges are required to report all warnings and safety infractions within 3 days of the competition.
  • Only Violations and warnings that actually occurred during the performance need to be reported. Warnings/violations given in the warm-up area are for the benefit of the individual team so they have the opportunity to avoid the deduction on the mat.
  • All submitted infractions and warnings can be found on the NYSCJA Judges and NYSPHSAA Committee Only page

Cheer Hair

Inappropriate Hair (violation) - although the hair is pulled off of the athletes face her hair is so long that it will get in the way of stunting


Warning - beware that hair secured high on the athletes head have a tendency to flip over into the eyes of the athlete, which would warrant a violation


Appropriate Hair - the hair is secured out of the face and the rest is shoulder length or shorter
