What is the Champions Challenge?

The Champions Challenge is a virtual championship that combines winners from all locations into one final event. This allows teams to save funds by competing regionally, and then overall division winners from each location advance to get ranked nationally against overall division winners from all locations.

How The Champions Challenge Works:

Round 1:
Compete and win at The U.S. Finals location of your choice.

Round 2:
Champion teams from split divisions will be combined at your location to advance just one team to The Final Round.
  • Videos of division winners in split divisions who were not judged on the same judging panel live will be watched and one team will be chosen to advance to The Final Round. Video review notes will be emailed to coaches.
  • Coed teams will be combined with all girl teams in all divisions.
  • Example: If Level 2 Junior is split small and medium and/or D1 and D2 at your location, only one team will advance to represent Level 2 Junior.

Champions Challenge Winners advancing to The Final Round will be announced in the evening on social media each #WinnerWednesday following a U.S. Finals event weekend. Tune in for the #WinnerWednesday Reveals on Twitter @TheUSFinals!
