Welcome

Welcome to the Cheer Rules section of CheerSafe.

This site is intended to help cheerleaders, coaches, parents, administrators, and rules interpreters understand the current cheerleading safety rules for school and college cheerleading.  All Star cheer rules and levels fall under the US All Star Federation and can be found here.

Very Important! The NFHS rule interpretations here have been confirmed by the NFHS office. However, each state association is responsible for the final interpretations of the NFHS Spirit Rule Book. In addition, some states have further restrictions for cheer. It is your responsibility to contact your state athletics or activities association, or your school’s governing body, to determine what additional rules may exist. The state rules interpreter is the final say for rule interpretations at the state level.

For AACCA rule interpretations, the interpretation posted on this site is the final authority.
