The 2017 KAPOS Cheer Coaches Conference on Saturday, August 19 was a huge success!  Jim Lord, as always did a great job presenting the NFHS ule changes.  Orry Clayborne and Hank Light from Varsity, explained the UCA high school score sheets and Game Day competitions, Bryce Seals , V!ROC, talked to coaches about choreography, and the UCA Staff were most helpiful in demonstrating stunts that coaches had a question about.  We appreciate the KHSAA for sharing their facility for this great day!


For 62 years KAPOS has been a leader and innovator for cheerleading in our country.   In the 2012-13 school year, we began a new chapter with the beginning of our KAPOS State Elementary and Middle School Competition!  In 2017-18 we will continue this competition and look forward to this year’s awesome teams!

The date for the KAPOS State Elementary and Middle School Competitions have been set for Saturday, December 16, 2017 at Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.  Competition times are listed as Eastern Standard Time.   All elementary and middle school cheer teams are encouraged to participate in their regional competitions which must be completed by Friday, December 1.  Regional winners will advance to the state competition.

Entry fees will be $125 per team with check made payable to KAPOS.  The fee should be paid at the first regional meeting, but MUST be paid no later than October 1.  After October 1, a late fee of $75 will be assessed until two weeks prior to the regional competition.  Then, no late entries will be accepted.
