School Competition Grid

Cheer Canada is pleased to publish a formal Scholastic Grid for school cheer for the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons. This Scholastic Grid is designed to be flexible with minor overlap of grades to allow for rural and urban schools across Canada. The intent is for all provinces to implement these divisions for the coming season.

2018-2020 Season Scholastic Grid

If a division is deep, the event producer may elect to subdivide the divisions based on team size. Cheer Canada recommends to split the divisions equally so there will be 50% of the teams in each division.
