Cheersport Kansas City 2018

Teams will be competing at Cheersport Kansas City Championships on March 24, 2018. The event is held at The Kansas City Convention Center in downtown Kansas City. 

Admission for spectators is $15, CASH ONLY. Children 10 and under are free. A complete list of performance times and venue information can be found on the Cheersport website.

General Reminders

It is so important that all athletes are on time. These competitions will not hold our practice times, so if we are without someone at check-in, we lose our chance to warm up and practice.

It is required that all athletes be at all KC Cheer performances to cheer loudly for all our teams. Please pay close attention to the schedules below to make sure you are in the arena at all of the listed performance times. It is unacceptable to miss a performance because you're eating a meal or getting ready to meet your coach (hair and makeup). All of these activities can and should be planned around performance times.

It is super exciting to be competing against teams from all over the country right here in our city. Remember to show great sportsmanship (cheerleaders AND parents), and hospitality so teams want to return to KC for future competitions.

Uniform/Apparel

Teams should be dressed in red jersey and black pants or warm ups when not in uniform. Remember that you must always have your tank top or warm up jacket on to cover your midriff if you are not in the practice room or performing. Everyone will wear the red bow.

Schedule

Listed below are the times to be dressed and ready to meet your coaches. It is very important that everyone is dressed and entirely ready at the times listed below.

Jamfest Kansas City Nationals 2018

It’s a busy couple of weeks at KC Cheer.  All teams will be competing at Jamfest Kansas City Nationals on February 17 and 18, 2018. The event is held at The Sprint Center, which is a different location than all of the Kansas City competitions we've been to this year. 

Admission for spectators is $15 for one day or $25 for both days. Military (with ID), Seniors 65+ and Children 4 and under are free.  Additional Information can be found on the Jamfest Website

General Reminders

It is so important that all athletes are on time. These competitions will not hold our practice times, so if we are without someone at check-in, we lose our chance to warm up and practice.

This is our chance to have our hometown crowd there to cheer on our teams. Be sure to get your light up sticks at the pro shop so we can light up the arena when our teams perform. Let's really show them our KC Cheer spirit and crowd support!

It is required that all athletes be at all KC Cheer performances (unless specified below) to cheer loudly for all our teams. Please pay close attention to the schedules below to make sure you are in the arena at all of the listed performance times. It is unacceptable to miss a performance because you're eating a meal or getting ready. All of these activities can and should be planned around performance times.

Our athletes love to perform for a cheering crowd! We love to have you there to watch, but remember to make some noise too! Bring on the loud voices, lighted signs, noisemakers and cowbells to support our teams.

It is super exciting to be competing against teams from all over the country right here in our city. Remember to show great sportsmanship (cheerleaders AND parents), and hospitality so teams want to return to KC for future competitions.

Remember: Coaches may call extra practices after your teams' performances on Saturday.
