FAQS

1. Why are there no more Partner Stunts and Group Stunts Divisions in CASNCC?

Ans: As part of International Cheer Union’s (ICU) agreement with Federation International de Gymnastique (FIG), starting from Year 2017 all Partner Stunt and Group Stunt Divisions will be eliminated from all National Federation Country Championships. However, there will still be Partner and Group Stunt Divisions in ACIC, which is an event supported by CAS.

2. Why are CASNCC and ACIC having different registrations this year (2017)?

Ans: There were previous confusions between the two events.  CAS decided to split CASNCC and ACIC into two separate events to allow better distinction and focus for local National Cheerleading Championships.

3. What will result from the split between CASNCC and ACIC?

Ans: Local teams are to note that it is not compulsory for them to join ACIC. Should they be interested in joining ACIC, they have to register separately for ACIC and there will be a separate fee. In addition, teams competing in both CASNCC and ACIC will have to compete and perform in their category separately, i.e. if a team competes in Coed Premier in CASNCC, the team will need to perform again during its equivalent division in ACIC.

4. Are both events free entry for spectators?

Ans: As per previous years, both events are free of charge to spectators. As part of CAS’ efforts to raise funds for the National team, priced seats are available on a first come first served basis.

5. Are local teams allowed to submit last minute substitutions for both CASNCC and ACIC?

Ans: No. We have observed the behaviour of teams not submitting any personnel in their substitution list and as a result caused numerous administrative issues due to last minute requests. As such, we will like to emphasize that we will not tolerate such issues and to highlight to teams to adhere to the submissions of your substitutions during your registration.

6. What if I have more enquiries with regard to CASNCC and ACIC?

Ans: Please email your enquiries to events@cheerleading.com.sg.
