Group Championship Qualification

 

 

 

NJCDCA News-Coaches Letter:

The Executive Board of the NJCDCA has been searching for years for an appropriate way to honor and award high school cheerleading squads in the Group Championship at our state competition. Many School Administrators and Athletic Directors believe a Group title is an important accomplishment in sports in NJ. In an effort to keep the Group Championship in line with other high school sports, we have developed a plan which will be based on an accumulative point system.  Please read through below to get all the info you need to qualify and to become a certified competition.

How can my team qualify?

 

Throughout your competitive season, starting in September 2017 through February 18, 2018, you will accumulate points to be eligible to compete in the “Group Cheer Off” at the NJCDCA State High School Cheerleading Championships.

  1. Only Varsity Cheer/Dance teams and Varsity All Music teams competing in the divisions that we offer at The State Championships will be eligible to compete in the Group Championship Cheer Off. (This excludes Intermediate and Non-Tumble Divisions). These are the only points we will post.
  2. Varsity Cheer/Dance teams will compete against each other in their respective groups and Varsity All Music teams will compete against each other in their respective groups.
  3. Eligibility to compete in the Group Championship Cheer Off at States, will be based on your top 5 scores from NJCDCA Certified competitions that you attend up until February 18, 2018.  If you compete in more than 5 competitions, we will only take the points from your top 5 competitions.  If you compete in less than 5 then the points you receive will still be tabulated and eligible.
  4. Points will be awarded to the top 5 teams in each division at certified NJCDCA competitions.
  5. Points will be tabulated according to your division placement at these competitions. Example:  You attend a competition and compete in the medium division against 5 other teams.  Your team places 3rd in the division and is awarded 25 points. The next week you compete and there are 3 teams in your division. You team places 2nd and is awarded 30 points (See Point Awards grid below).
  6. If you are the only team in your division at a particular competition your points will still be tabulated according to the attached Point Awards System.
  7. If there is a tie in placements both teams will receive the same number of points.
  8. Please allow 1 week for the results of each competition to be posted.  If you do not see your points listed after 1 week, please contact that competition sponsor.  DO NOT CONTACT THE NJCDCA.

Each week the points you accumulated from the competition you attended will be displayed in a separate section of our web site for your review.  You will be able to follow your Group Standings by visiting our web site weekly.

 

The NJCDCA will be inviting only the highest scoring teams within each group to participate in the Cheer/Dance Group Championship and the All Music Group Championship at States.  The number of teams invited will be determined by the number of teams participating within each group.  All teams qualify for the Group Cheer Off will be notified prior to the State Championships.

 

As this is truly a season accumulation of points and by “invitation only category”, we hope this new system will establish the most competitive teams participating in the “Group Cheer Off.”
