Open Championship for High Schools


As a birthday gift to our high school cheer coaches in the 2014-15 season, we started what we hope to be another tradition that will last another 60 years and beyond!  We listened to our coaches requests and on Saturday, January 10 we held our 1st KAPOS Open Cheer Championships! The competition was held at McBrayer Arena on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University (521 Lancaster Avenue, Richmond, KY 40475).

Below are a few specifics for these competitions……There are two divisions.  Division A is for schools with an enrollment of 599 or fewer. Division B is for schools with an enrollment of 600 or more. Both are based on enrollment in grades 9-12 on October 1 of the current school year.

Each division has five categories:  Small (4-12), Medium (13-16), Large (17-20), Super Large (21-24), and Coed (4-24 with at least one male).

The competition fee is $125 per team.  Because of the turn around time for the program book and because we want EVERY participating team to be included, the entry deadline will be strictly adhered to. The Registration/Entry Fee form, Insurance form (which serves as your Eligibility Sheet), and Music Information can be accessed in the links below.  A start time is determined once the teams have been entered.

The committee is working on a date and location for this year’s small school and open championships.  Once they get the details worked out, we hope you’ll join us and be a part of our rich cheerleading history!
