  • Makeup should be uniform and appropriate for both the performance and the age of the athletes. Face/Eyelid Rhinestones are not allowed. False eyelashes are allowed but may not be decorated in rhinestones or additional jewelry.
  • Bows should not be excessive in size (acceptable bows are generally no more than 3” in width) and shouldn’t be a  distraction to the performance. Bows should be worn in a manner to minimize risk for the participants, should be  adequately secured and should not fall over the forehead into the participants’ eyes or block the view of the  participant while performing

Canadian Cheer Videos

Videos of each team will be posted to Youtube under the  Canadian Cheer Videos Vimeo page.  Videos will be posted a week after the event.  All runs at the event will be posted to Vimeo.  Exceptions to this rule, where videos will not be posted to Youtube, include extreme safety infractions and costume malfunctions.  You can visit the Canadian Cheer Videos page by clicking here.


We kindly request that ALL Coaches, and athletes do not enter the practice area until their report time.

Athletes will need wristbands from their coaches to gain access to the venue.

Coaches of young teams are kindly asked to arrange meeting times directly inside the athlete entrance. This will allow parents of the young athletes to wait with their child until the coach arrives. Alternately, the parent would need to purchase a ticket before escorting their child into the arena to any other designated spot.

Schedule of Events

The final performance schedule has been posted to here.

Although all Cheer Evolution events are known for being run precisely on-time, unforeseen circumstances sometimes cause times to shift slightly.  We will always attempt to ensure that this does not affect any teams negatively.

The most up-to-date schedule will be available for all coaches in their registration package at the registration desk, and will be posted throughout the warm-up facility. Due to last minute additions we remind coaches to use these copies of the performance order and not to rely on the spectator program.
