ICCA Competitive Cheer Press release 

The Illinois Cheerleading Coaches Association has been working diligently the past few months to prepare for what options may be available for competitive cheer teams this fall. We will adopt the IHSA scoring guidelines, scoring rubrics and score system as well as offering both the performance and game day divisions, respectively. The ICCA anticipates offering competitive options this season with a focus on virtual competitions. Expect updates on ICCA‘s projected plan.
