Each year, in all of the AYC divisions, 200 Cheer, Dance and Step squads compete for a title. But only the best, the top 3 teams from each region, in each division, will qualify for the National Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Will your team be the one to play for an overall championship? For more information please visit



AYC has nine regions including Desert Pacific, Mountain Northwest, Midwest, Southwest, Big East, Atlantic, New England, Central Midwest, and Southeast. Each region is responsible for conducting qualifying championships for the National Championships. Regional championships occur in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving weekend. Each region is responsible for scheduling their own Regional Cheer Championship, dates therefore may vary accordingly.
