For a cheerleading or dance squad, the difficult road to the national championship is quite similar to that of the football teams. A spirit squad will showcase their best two minute and thirty second (2:30) routine complete with music and cheering at a league qualifying level. The top performing squads advance to their region's qualifying competition in each small and large category, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced.

At the regional competition, a spirit squad will again perform their top two-minute and thirty second (2:30) routine in hopes of qualifying. The first and second place qualifying squads in each region in each small and large category, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced are invited to perform at Disney’s Wide World of Sports™ in hopes of winning a national championship for their local association.

The participants in the Pop Warner program are unique as opposed to those of other programs. While they are taught about the values of competition, they are also maintaining their grades at a satisfactory level in order to attain the ultimate prize of being named a Pop Warner National Champion. We salute all the efforts and accomplishments that our participants put forward!
The Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships take place at Disney’s Wide World of Sports™ Complex in early December every year.
