Here is an update for our Webinar series that includes responses to questions that were asked based on our Rubric Webinar Series.  
This is posted in the NYSPHSAA Cheerleading page and accessible at the link below:





ADs and Coaches


Section V has approved to allow 10% of each Cheerleading Division to move on to the State Championships after Sectional Finals.  This is determined by having the Sectional Winner in each Division move on to the State Competition.  If there are more than 10 in a Division then it will be the Sectional winner plus the school or schools with the next highest scores.  Ex:  If there are 11 schools, we will send 2 schools to States, 21 schools will mean 3 and so on.  If a Division is divided multiple times (Division 2 Small) we will divide according to BEDS numbers in to equal numbers, send the winner and the rest will be determined by the next highest scores within that whole division. Since we have over 60 teams traditionally in Division 2 Small, we use the same set of judges for Sectionals to assure consistency.

NFHS Spirit rules book corrections can be found on the NYSCJA Safety Webpage:




In order to qualify to compete in Sectionals Teams MUST compete in at least 2 sanctioned competitions prior to sectionals.  Alternates MUST be at competitions in uniform in order to count as 2 competitions, if they are needed in Sectionals. Competitions are listed on our website.


Music for sectionals MUST be on MP3 Player, IPODs, etc for clarity, NOT CDs
We will be using 9 mats for Sectionals.

All Classifications will be judged the same with level of difficulty.
