Regional Middle School & Elementary Info & Competition Dates


For 61 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 Middle School Competition!   Each year since then our competition has continued to grow, and this year will be no different as we will continue this new tradition and look forward to this year’s awesome teams!

Regionals will be conducted anytime before and no later than Friday, December 2.  The state competition will be held on Saturday, December 17 in AllTech Arena located in the Horse Park in Lexington.  (See the State At-Large Competition link for more information concerning the state competition.)

Each competing team will perform a 2 1/2 minute routine that incorporates music and a cheer. The music/audio portion is limited to no more than 1 1/2 minutes. A 10 point timing penalty will be accessed if the music exceeds the 1 1/2 minute time limit. A 10 point timing penalty will be accessed if the entire routine exceeds the 2 1/2 minute routine limit.

The competition will consist of 2 divisions:
Elementary Division (K-6)
The categories are Small (4-16 members) and Large (17-25 members).  Four (4) places will be awarded in each category of each division.

Middle School Division (8th grade and under)
The categories are Small (4-12 members), Medium (13-16 members), Large (17-20 members), and Super Large (21-25).  Four (4) places will be awarded in each category of each division.

Teams may include students from their designated feeder schools.

Entry fees will be $125 per team and made payable to KAPOS.  The fee should be paid at the first regional meeting, but MUST be paid no later than October 1.  If your fee is not paid by the deadline, you may register 1 week prior to the regional competition with a late fee of $75.  (No late fee will be accepted after 1 week prior to the competition date.)

The decision was made to “NOT ALLOW BASKET TOSSES” in the Elementary or Middle School Divisions.

Decisions of the judges are final.  There is no appeal process.
