Each year, the Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships feature more than 300 of the nation's top youth cheerleading and dance teams competing at the HP Field House within ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex.
For a cheerleading or dance squad, the difficult road to the national championship is quite similar to that of the football teams’.
A spirit squad will showcase their best (2:30) two minute and thirty second routine at a league championship. The top two cheer and dance squads advance to regional competition. Cheer teams advance in the following size divisions: small, medium and large in the YCADA PW 1, PW 2, PW 3 and PW 4 Skill Levels.
At regional competition, a spirit squad will again perform their top (2:30) two-minute and thirty second routine in hopes of winning. The first and second place squads in the region in each cheer and dance division are invited to perform at Disney’s Wide World of Sports™ in hopes of winning a national championship for their local association.
