Those interested in trying out for the 2023 All-State Team should follow submission guidelines listed.  Please see the CHEER or DANCE section for more information on what skills should be presented in All State Routines and the sport specific guides.

• All State tryouts are open to all athletes of school programs who hold current WACPC membership. Athletes must be presently enrolled in grades 9-12 and are members of their current school team.

• Athletes trying out for both cheer and dance all state: the school must have both a cheer and a dance team with coaches registered as such with WACPC or the school acknowledges that the team is a combination of cheer/dance and the coach must be registered with WACPC as a combo member. Schools with both cheer and dance programs - athlete would need to be registered via their rostered team and their registered coach. (ex. Dance athlete could not register under the cheer team/coach and Cheer athlete could not register under dance team/coach.)

• There is a $25/per athlete fee due with registration.

• The performance must follow National Federation Rules for Spirit Groups.

• Candidates are asked to appear in a performance costume/team uniform. All costumes, uniforms, footwear and hair accessories must follow all National Federation Rules.
