HOW IT WORKS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With the costs of cheerleading on the rise, we need to reimagine cheerleading and dance events to give gyms, parents, and athletes more choices!
The Open Championship Series is comprised of hundreds of qualifier events across the world hosted by your favorite event producers. Compete in close to home or travel a little bit farther to a different region. It’s up to you!
Compete at two different types of qualifier events: Value Qualifiers or Premium Qualifiers. Value Qualifiers offer lower entry fees, lower spectator costs, and less production. Premium Qualifiers have mid-range entry fees, mid -level spectator fees, and more production.
Earn credits every time you compete at those qualifiers! Those credits are applied towards an Open Series Championship End-of-Year-Event! There are 4 different Championships across the nation that offer a destination location experience! Compete at an Open Championship close to home or travel a little bit farther! The choice is yours!
Interested in an end-of-year elimination-style competition? The Open Championship Series also offers the Allstar World Championship! Teams can earn paid and partial paid bids to the Allstar World Championship at our Qualifier events!
WHAT ARE NATIONAL RANKINGS?
After you compete, your team will be nationally ranked each week against teams that have competed at other qualifier events across the nation. Come back every week to see if where your team ranks in your division across the nation! At the end of the season, the top teams will be awarded prizes!
HOW DO I BENEFIT?
Cheerleading and Dance has reached a critical point in our industry. As prices and costs continue to rise, we created the Open Championship Series competition model to create solutions to all the pain points many are experiencing. The Open Championship Series offers affordable competitions that meet the needs of any size gym! Teams can earn credits to your choice of Open Championship or Teams can earn paid and partial paid bids to the Allstar World Championship!

Create a different Championship experience every year by traveling to different Open end-of-year events! And weekly, real time National Rankings help keep the competitive spirit alive as you compete during the season!

Is this Just Another Competition? Why are you Different?
We are not just another competition. The Open Championship Series model was created by Industry Professionals after listening to the concerns of gym owners, coaches, parents, and athletes. Collectively, everyone wants their athlete to cheer or dance and work towards an end goal. But everyone needs a sustainable solution that is affordable, provides choices, and fits the needs of every program. The Open Championship Series model delivers those solutions to allow for more competition and increase competition! The way we’re doing it now isn’t working – for the parent, for the athlete, for the gym owner. The Open Championship Series brings back choices, variety, and affordability!
