How to Ask a Rules Question

All rule questions should be directed to: Erin Taylor (iowaerintaylor@gmail.com).

Before emailing legality questions, coaches are expected to check stunt legalities by using the National Federation Spirit Rules Book (including situation rulings and pictures) and videos on the Cheer Rules (www.cheerrules.com).

Coaches should only email if questions about the legality of a stunt or any other component of the routine still remain after first trying to find the answer.

If questions still remain, these steps MUST be followed:

  1. HEAD COACH emails a video (right side up) of the stunt or the part of the routine in question (not the entire routine)
  2.  Include:
    1. Coach’s name
    2. School name
    3. School classification and division entered (if applicable)
  3. Include current rule number pertaining to this stunt and a specific question (which part of the rule are you still questioning)
