The 2017-2018 KAPOS State Elementary and Middle School competitions were a great success, and we extend our sincere congratulations to ALL of our participating teams.   YOU made it a great day!  Check out all of the results on the Competition Results – State Middle School and Elementary link.


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!
