The Weekend Roundoff

December 17-18, 2022

Here's what's happening

Welcome to the last weekend of competition in 2022 – WHAT. A. YEAR! These first few weeks of the 2022-2023 season have been intense, and this upcoming weekend is shaping up to be another exciting showdown.


In Houston at Encore Grand Nationals, we will see 21 powerhouse teams take the mat. The Medium Coed Texas teams will go head-to-head for the first time this season. Senior Open Large Coed 6 will see a matchup between the reigning World Champs, Top Gun Revelation, and Cheer Athletics Wildcats. And based on each of these teams’ last performances, we’re in for a show.


In Kansas City at America’s Best Championships Grand Nationals, we’ll see 15 teams compete for their shot at one of eight Cheerleading Worlds Bids. It will be the first time we see performances from Twist & Shout, KC Cheer, Cheer St. Louis, Elite Cheer, and more.


In Colorado at All Star Championships Grand Nationals, 15 teams will compete for two full paid bids and six at-large bids to the Cheerleading Worlds. We will see debut performances from Colorado-based programs like Steele Athletics, Cheer Athletics Denver, Cheer Central Suns, and even a few California-based programs such as Nor Cal Elite and Fierce.


In Ohio at GMCE’s Royal Rumble, 28 Worlds-level teams will take the mat to compete for Cheerleading Worlds bids. It will be a Midwest showdown with deep competition in the Extra Small divisions. See everyone competing here.
