Be A Kapos Cheer Judge

In order to meet the needs of the ever changing world of Kentucky cheerleading, KAPOS has adopted a new judging system!

The first judging clinic was held on Saturday, August 20, and there were also clinics held in Florence on Saturday, August 27, in Madisonville and Elizabethtown on Saturday, September 17, in Hazard on Saturday, September 24, and in Morehead on Tuesday, September 27.

Click 2016-2017 Judges Clinic Registration Form to check out the registration form and the judges information sheet that was used to register.

One of the major objectives of KAPOS is to promote excellence in cheering for your team.   We would hope that every region would want to reward their cheerleaders for this excellence by conducting an in-game competition during their tournaments.

In order to help promote this goal, KAPOS once again trained judges for in-game competitions.  Only judges trained at one of the KAPOS judging clinics are certified to judge both in-game and/or KAPOS competitions.
