USASF and IASF released their list of divisions for the Cheerleading Worlds 2019. They added seven new divisions total – three for USASF and four for IASF. At the Cheerleading Worlds 2018, there were 14 divisions and now there are 21 divisions. 

USASF and IASF also made changes to division sizes, age restrictions, and other details. We’ve listed all of the restrictions for each division below. 

The biggest changes include the International Non-Tumbling divisions, which take out the tumbling and jumping elements of a cheerleading routine. USASF also announced last week that any program, regardless of size or other Worlds teams, can compete in the Extra Small and Extra Small Coed divisions. 

This post was last updated May 25th, 2018. It is entirely possible that these divisions will change prior to the Cheerleading Worlds 2019.
