America’s Best National Championship took place December 3-4, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri. They are also one of the first competitions to award bids to the Cheerleading Worlds, alongside Spirit National Championships and Team Champion’s Holiday Classic.

America’s Best National Championship awarded six bids, four at-large and two full paid. Major kudos to the teams who worked hard enough to obtain bids so early in the season, we’ll see you in Orlando at Worlds! Below you’ll find the bid winners as well as other results. We will add videos as they become available.
