Varsity’s The Summit began in 2013 as the pinnacle end-of-the-year bid event for all teams and levels (except for senior and international level 5 and 6 teams). Teams compete all season long for a wildcard, at-large, or full paid bid to perform at ESPN Wide World of Sports for the coveted National Champion title.

In 2016, Varsity introduced The D2 Summit for gyms with 125 athletes or fewer. The D2 Summit allows smaller gyms to compete on a level playing field.

For such an important event, we thought it might be helpful to track down each team who has won a medal in the past five years. Since The Summit’s inception in 2013, 775 teams from 240 different programs have won a gold, silver, or bronze medal.

We ranked each gym on a weighted scale: gold = 5, silver = 3, bronze = 1. For the sake of this ranking, we combined The Summit and The D2 Summit bids. Many gyms have won titles at both events and it would create confusion to separate them. Programs with D2 Summit medals are clearly marked in the table with an asterisk.

Near the top of the list, we see many of the same programs that top the list in our ranking based on the Cheerleading Worlds titles such as The California All Stars, The Stingray All Stars, Cheer Athletics, and Cheer Extreme. We also see a few new programs enter the top spots, i.e. SCV All Stars, Infinity All Stars, and Cheer Centrals Suns, among many others.

Please Note:

We tried our absolute best to provide an accurate ranking, but as always, there is room for error. If something seems off – shoot us an email at

** June 22, 2017 Update** We’ve made many updates based on feedback and corrections. We are aware that there are incomplete results for The Summit 2013 level 3 teams and are working to get it fixed.
