The Divisions for State 2018 will be as follows for school teams:

Varsity:  Will continue to be split by Class A and AA and we will offer the following divisions.

  • Tumbling 1 (16 or less team members)
  • Tumbling 2 (17-30 team members )
  • Non-Tumbling 1 (12 or less team members)
  • Non - Tumbling 2 (13-30 team members.

To be on a Varsity Team students will need to be in Grades 7-12. This is different than UCA's new guidelines so when holding tryouts if you are planning on attending any UCA events, please consult their division guidelines.

Varsity Co-ed will still be offered as well, but will be added into a regular division if we do not have the required number of teams as we have in the past.

Junior Varsity: We will continue to offer Junior Varsity and Junior Varsity Non-Tumbling. To be on a JV team students will need to be in Grades 7-12.  All Co-ed JV teams will compete in the regular division.  This is different than UCA's new guidelines so when holding tryouts if you are planning on attending any UCA events, please consult their division guidelines.

Middle School: This will be for students in grades 5-9.

Elementary: This will be for students in grades K-6.

The format of the State Competition will remain the same as 2017, but the structure of the day will be different.
