College Division Guidelines
- Each team division (cheer and dance) have a routine maximum length of 2:30. Cheer teams are encouraged to have a choreographed cheer portion of their routine in order to potentially receive the maximum amount of points in the voice category (see the Cheer Ltd College score sheets for category point totals, etc). If a cheer routine is choreographed entirely to music with a voice-over section, the judges will determine the quality, execution, and if the amount of "voice" is sufficient for maximum points. If the performance has no choreographed words, cheer, voice-over during the official start and stop of the routine, each judge will give a zero for the voice category.
- Individual cheerleader divisions are limited to a maximum of 1:30. Cheer Ltd does not set parameters on the length of music, but the "crowdleading" category does incorporate "voice" into the judging criteria. Therefore a routine should include a cheer/chant and/or voice-over section in order to potentially receive the maximum amount of points in "crowdleading."
- Stunt group divisions are to be choreographed completely to music. Routine length maximum is 1:30. Stunt choreography is limited to stunting only. Deductions will be taken for any routine incorporating tumbling, dance, choreographed motions and/or jumps that are not specifically performed into, during, or out of stunts. Mounts, transitions, or dismounts that legally incorporate jumps, motions, or tumbling skills are acceptable.
