University Divisions

All members are 17 years old (on August 31st 2020) or older and 90% of the team are current students at the named university. 10% of the team can be past students/alumni, if they have graduated from the named university within the past 4 years. University divisions will be offered at UK University Nationals as well as our other events for the 2020-21 season. At all other events, University divisions will be combined with Open divisions if there are single team entries. Students must compete on the team of the university that they are a registered student at - they cannot compete for a different university's team.

For UK UNIVERSITY NATIONALS only, coaches will be required to upload a photo/file of each registered athletes official University photo ID card onto the registration system when they register their teams. ID cards will be checked against your team rosters on admission to warm-up to make certain that the athletes listed on the system are the performing athletes. When you register for the event you will be issued with instructions on how to upload each athlete's ID card. If you have alumni athletes competing who no longer have their student ID card showing an expiration date, please email with an attachment showing a copy of the alumni athlete's degree certificate, a copy of either their passport or drivers licence and a headshot, similar to a passport photo. We will then issue them with an ID card.



Please note that Future Cheer reserves the right to close an event early if we experience a high volume of entries. We recommend that you register early and do not book accommodation until registered to avoid disappointment. *Solos/Individuals are offered at Circus Spectacular, Paris & Barcelona only.
