Updated: Apr 21

It’s time to start thinking about the AASCF Nationals Competition in Melbourne Victoria! Please read the below for details and requirements.


AASCF Nationals is a 3-day event held in Melbourne Victoria this year.


WHERE: Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank, VIC

WHO: All Cheer Elite, Cheer Novice, Adult Teams and Dance attend. Cheer Sport teams do not attend.





TIMELINE:


FULL OUT WEEK

Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 Nov 2021 Full Out Week is held at our gym and is compulsory for all nationals athletes. It is super important for everyone to attend as this is when we perform our full routines for each other and gain our final performance confidence. All Nationals athletes will need to be in the gym BOTH Monday AND Tuesday afternoon this week. A timetable will be sent out for Full Out Week at a later date. This will replace our regular afternoon classes running from 4pm onwards.

Non-nationals athletes: Regular classes are not running for all non-Nationals athletes during Full Out Week, however, you are invited to attend, watch and support out Nationals teams!

Non-nationals athletes: The gym is closed for regular classes from Mon 22nd November to Sat 4 December. We will reopen for training on Monday 6 December for our Assessment week.


TRAVEL DAY

Wednesday 24 Nov 2021

We have specifically set aside Wednesday 24 November for athletes to travel to Melbourne. Gym closed on this day.


TRAINING SESSION IN MELBOURNE

Thursday 25 Nov 2021, (Times to come, at a later date) Location: Outlaws, 11 Ricdanic Drive, Bayswater VIC. This day is super important as our last training session before competing and is lots of fun as the whole gym gets to see all the teams perform and train together. Athletes will be at the training session for 4 hours. Times to be confirmed.


NATIONALS COMPETITION

Friday 26, Sat 27 and Sun 28 November 2021 Novice and Dance: Typically Novice and Dance teams compete on either Friday or Saturday but as we can’t confirm until 1-2 weeks before the competition we require return flights to be booked for Novice and Dance athletes on Sun 28 November. Elite: Elite teams may be scheduled to compete on Friday, Saturday or Sunday so must book your return flight home on or after Monday 29 November. No Pinnacle Comp this year.

WHAT TO DO:


Book Accommodation: We encourage everyone to book their accommodation asap as there are gyms attending from all around Australia (and NZ, Asia, USA if travel restrictions lift) so hotels/apartments book out fast. Previously Nationals have had approximately 30,000 attendees! We can not stress enough - accommodation WILL book out in popular areas.


Book Flights: We recommend looking out for special deals and booking your flights to Tullamarine Airport. We have specifically set aside Wednesday 24 November for athletes to travel to Melbourne. Please remember, do not book your flights before this (due to compulsory Full Out week) or after this day (due to our Nationals full gym training session in Melbourne).
