Cheer Rules Clinic & Exam

VHSL Cheer Rules Clinic UPDATE & Facebook

The last face-to-face cheer rules clinic was conducted Sunday, September 21.  Due to the amount of confusion about the face-to-face rules clinics, we are offering an opportunity for coaches who may have missed the opportunity to attend their local face-to-face clinics to view the rules clinic presentation on our NEW VHSL-Cheer Facebook page (  We encourage you to like our page, as it provides another means of communication within Virginia's cheer community.  Any coach who did not attend a face-to-face rules clinic is expected to view the clinic presentation to glean the important information it provides, including 2014-15 NFHS rules changes and safety tips.  All schools who view the presentation will receive credit for clinic attendance.
