Coaches and Parents!

A special Thank You to all of our teams for the YEARS AND YEARS of competing with American Cheer Power!  We love and appreciate all of our coaches and parents!  The Athlete has been and always will be the focus of American Cheer Power! 

Last year we were excited to announce our First-Ever Ė NSPA!  We were thrilled that soon after USASF ruled that gyms with 125 and less would be considered SMALL GYMS.  That was an exciting moment!  All of us in the sport, including event producers and Large gyms really need for the Small gym to be successful!   We also were successful in bringing the D2 Summit to the sport of Cheerleading.  The Championship was held in Tampa, Florida and was a HUGE SUCCESS!  Thank you Varsity for making that happen!


Cheer Power will have a lot of ORLANDO SUMMIT BIDS as well as D2 SUMMIT BIDS TO GIVE OUT this season!  We will also be giving out US FINAL BIDS!  Click on our US FINALS information square on the front page of our website.   Our calendar will give you the number of bids to be given at each competition.  CHEER POWER will also hold several D2 Championships during the year along with NCA and CHEERSPORT!  You will find all of these dates on our Event Calendar.

There are three CHEER POWER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS that will be Stay to Play!  San Antonio Alamodome Nationals, Midwest Nationals, and Cash Bash in Galveston!  For Cash Bash we would like Moody Gardens to be full before working with Connections Housing.  Itís so important to get ROOM COUNTS DUE TO receiving preference to reserve these huge facilities and for the city of Galveston.  If the room count is high enough, they give us $20,000 for coming to the Island and Cheer Power is always excited to give that back to our teams at Cash Bash!

We have enjoyed our relationship with Connections Housing due to the fact that if a team needs a hotel with special pricing they will work with your budget.  They will also make it easy for coaches by giving them a web link for their parents.  Please email Regina@cheerpower.com if you have any problems at all.   Please register early for our National events to insure your team a spot! Also, please do not make Airfare until you are sure you are registered for our National events!  Please remember that getting your Hotel accommodation for a National Event does not mean you are registered for that event.

  For all Stay to Play Championships, you can fill out an Exemption form if you plan to commute to the competition or you plan to stay with friends!  You are also welcome to give Connections a budget for them to work with.  The only thing different this year is the CANCELLATION POLICY!  They had to put this in place due to teams booking hotel rooms early and then cancelling a good number of them too close to competition for others to book.  That causes the system to show really good hotels FULL when they are actually NOT FULL!  This policy will be in place and available for the website for you to view.

The staff here at Cheer Power is looking forward to another great year!  We would like to wish all of you a very successful cheer/dance season!  We look forward to seeing your new routines, wonderful and fun parents, very talented coaches and most of all - YOU - ATHLETES!  We missed you this summer and are looking forward to seeing you again!  Coaches please don't forget Varsity's CUP SERIES!  Champions will receive Jackets, Banners and Recognition for your gym!  Congratualtions to all of our Graduating Seniors!  Please come back and start your own gym or become a judge for this wonderful sport we all love so much!

Housing Policy FAQS:

Who is required to stay through our Housing Company?

Any coach, parent or athlete that is staying in a hotel.  Gyms that are within 100 miles of the venue will be exempt unless they make the decision to stay in a hotel.

How do you keep track that all the teams are abiding by this rule?

We will be using a Housing Compliance roster for each team registered this year.  Coaches must submit this form by December 1, 2016 for all teams attending.

What if the hotel that Iíd like to stay in is showing no rooms available?

Ask Connections to put you on a waiting list for that hotel.  As deadlines near, a few rooms do open up at most hotels.  You should go ahead and get another room booked and then if something opens up they will move you to the requested hotel.  This is the reason for the cancellation policy.  This will give us a more accurate room availability.

What happens if a team or individual does not abide by policy?

Teams or individuals will be ineligible to participate in the event.

What if the hotel I would like to stay at isnít showing on Connections site?

Contact Connections and they will try their best to get the hotel added to their site.

What if I would like to book a suite at a hotel?

Connections will try to accommodate any housing request.

Can I book at room myself as long as the hotel is on the Connections website?

No, rooms must be booked direction through Connections Housing!

What if I have family in the area that I would like to stay with or would like to use hotel reward points?

American Cheer Power understands the expense that parents have with All-star Cheerleading and we would like to help in any way we can.  Our company gives 3rd family discounts and also sponsors one athlete per team at every regional championship.  In order to help with Stay to Play we created a HOUSING EXCEPTION FORM if you plan to stay with relatives or friends or if you are using your reward points at a certain hotel. You can find this form on our website and it must be turned in to Housing Connections by October 31, 2016.  Exceptions will be approved or denied by the end of the month.

If Iíve booked a block for my team through Connections Housing, does that mean I am registered to compete at the competition?

No, a hotel reservation does not guarantee your reservation for the American Cheer Power National event! You must go on line and fill out a registration form in order for your team to compete.  Please do this as early as possible.  These events are closed based on venue space.

 

If you have any questions about the Housing Policy you may contact Connections Housing at 844-782-9227 (STAYACP) or email at cheerpower@connectionshousing.com
