Establish a registration date and assessment date (if applicable). Provide the timeline and criteria for selecting the teams (age, skills, etc.) Remember the pool of athletes can expand outside the current athletes in your organization to include those involved in cheerleading, gymnasts, competitive cheer athletes, weightlifters, etc.
Reach out to surrounding clubs to see who is planning on hosting tournaments and what the dates will be. Work together to set tournaments based on hosting locations that everyone can attend. With the STUNT format, two, three, or four teams can meet in one location and play multiple games. If you do not have available facilities to host a tournament, work with your local middle or high schools for mats and indoor facility space. Contact USA Cheer to assist in getting this process started.
