National Cheer & Dance Championships

Each year, the Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships feature more than 500 of the nation's top youth cheerleading and dance teams competing at the HP Field House within ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex.

For a cheerleading or dance team, the difficult road to the national championship is quite similar to that of the football teams’.

A spirit team will showcase their best (2:30) two minute and thirty second routine at a league championship. The top two cheer and dance teams advance to regional competition.

At regional competition, a spirit team will again perform their top (2:30) two-minute and thirty second routine in hopes of winning. The first and second place teams in the region in each cheer and dance division are invited to perform at Disney’s Wide World of Sports™ in hopes of winning a national championship for their local association.

The Cheer & Dance Championships feature over 500 cheer and dance teams who compete at a six-day long event. Competitions take place at the HP Field House at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex (tm). Cheer & Dance teams compete in 5 different age ranges (Mitey Mite, Jr. Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Jr. Varsity & Varsity).

The Show Cheer and Sideline Performance Cheer teams also compete in sizes (Small, Medium & Large) and Cheer & Dance teams compete in nine YCADA Divisions (Show Cheer 1-4, PW 1, PW 2, PW 3, PW4, Core Cheer, Sideline Performance Cheer, Pom Performance, Hip Hop and Theme Dance).

The 2020 Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships will take place from Saturday, December 5th through Friday, December 11th at ESPN Wide World of Sports™ Complex.

The participants in the Pop Warner program are unique as opposed to those of other programs. While they are taught about the values of competition, they are also maintaining their grades at a satisfactory level in order to attain the ultimate prize of being named a Pop Warner National Champion. We salute all the efforts and accomplishments that our participants put forward!
