Introducing Level 7 – All Star Cheerleading
The IASF (International All Star Federation) headquartered in Memphis, TN serves as the “world wide governing body for sport cheering and dance.” Previously, the IASF was a part of the USASF (United States All Star Federation) until they became a separate entity in March 2016. In an evening press release, on October 25, 2018, the organization released their most drastic steps seen to date in an effort to “align the sport with the global community” introduces a Level 7 division for the 2020 Cheerleading World Championships.
“The addition of a Level 7 creates a shift in levels” says, IASF Secretary General, Les Stella. What the industry currently knows as Level 5 Restricted, moves to be solely called “Level 5”. What we currently know as “Level 5” becomes Level 6, and what we currently know as “Level 6” becomes Level 7. The level changes, are among additional rule changes being introduced for divisions governed by the IASF.
