SONC first offered Cheerleading in 2006. With its addition it became the 19th sport offered to local programs by SONC.
Individual Performance competition is available for athletes just starting out in cheerleading, or for programs without adequate numbers to form a team. Athletes have two and on-half minutes to complete a routine, and music is allowed.
Team Competition is offered in the traditional and Unified Sports models in four different categories. Criteria and restrictions for each category are found within the SONC Cheerleading Rules. All categories allow music, and teams have two and one-half minutes to complete their routine. Music is allowed in all categories, but not required.
All forms must be submitted by the local program coordinator.

Sport Development Team
We are currently recruting volunteers to serve on the Cheerleading SDT. These volunteers advise SONC staff regarding sport rule modifications, competition and also train coaches in their sport! For more information on the cheerleading sport development team, contact Andrea Stamm, SONC staff liaison.
In addition to the sport development team, these volunteers are able to conduct local sport specific training schools on behalf of SONC. Contact the clinician in your area if you would like to schedule a training (their county of residence is located under their name). For more information on becoming a certified clinician, contact Andrea Stamm.
