Division 18

Our teens asked and received!  The demand was there to increase our divisions to 18 years of age and AYC listened!  This division has been added for these upper aged athletes to showcase and perform their skills in a Competition environment.

Contender Division

AYC has built a great division called the Contender Division. This is a division dedicated to Athletes with Disabilities, an all inclusive program that enables all athletes to learn and grow in a positive work environment.  Our coaches find a way for every body to play and perform!  Our motto is “It’s all for the kids”!

Bring it AYC! Music and Logo Upload

AYC has amped up the game and added some wonderful features that will help your team “bring it” to Nationals!  AYC has implemented a music file transfer process for all teams at Nationals that will greatly reduce (or eliminate) music interruption events for both the Coaching Staff and the Athletes.  This will allow usage of your team’s music for both practice and performance at the event!  There will be plenty of time to see how the system works and we strongly feel that this process will lessen your “music stresses”. 

As your team “takes the floor” to perform, we would like to properly recognize them by including your team logo/colors for ALL to see. This will certainly add to the excitement of the event for our athletes and the process for submission is easy!

At Cheer registration you wil be required  to upload your music and logo to our production staff. Please have them on a CD or DVD. *Bring Multiple copies.

EPIC Brands and AYC Routine Review:   Reserve your team’s spot to perform your competition routine for an EPIC judge and a member of the AYC technical committee before the National Championship!  Reviews will be on Thursday & Friday!  This is a great way to ensure your routine is completely legal for competition day!  This is your time to have your cheerleaders do their routine, get some easy tips from judges and shake off some of the performance jitters!  Registration is open on myayf.com once you register your team for nationals!

AYC SPORTSMANSHIP:
Show your sportsmanship to other competitive cheer teams and come up with a good luck token to hand out to fellow competitors during the days of Nationals. See if you can come up with a small token of good luck that represents your team or area! An example is: if you are from the California coast, you can wrap up some sand with a seashell, tie a note to it that says "Wishing you waves of luck" from the California Titans! Or the Spotswood Bulldogs can hand out little paw prints that say "Bulldogs we paws to wish you luck". Something cute, inexpensive and a representation of your great team! See how many tokens you receive during Nationals! A great way to wish good luck to all our cheerleaders!
