TAPPS reserves the right to split, combine, and delete subdivisions as warrants and/or deemed appropriate.
The Varsity Team will compete for a Rating as well as a Rank to determine the Champions.
See section 260 for time limits and requirements for the Varsity Team

You may enter multiple squads/small ensembles for Non-Varsity Participation for rating without ranks.
These Non-Varsity Squads do not have to designate Spirit or Traditional and squad size does not determine % of skills.  This is a growth opportunity for your students to do what best fits their skills. They will be judged at the end of day one.

  • Time limit 1:30 max.
  • Stunts, tumbling, tosses, pyramids allowed but not required
  • No requirement for 50%+ or majority.
  • No ranks given
  • Adjudication for superior or excellent performance
  • small plaque award for superior
  • Cost $20 per student on each squad.
