Division Rules

Attention Athletes Inquiring Critiques and Division Rules!

Competitors will be required to receive their critiques at the end of the show and will NOT be able to receive them at any other time! We will no longer accept any e-mails, messages, or phone calls in regards to critiques. If you do not stay until the end of the event, the critiques will be destroyed following the event. This is due to an overwhelming amount of inquiries contacting the head judge weeks after the event as the athlete did not stay until the completion of the show.


All Athletes must meet the criteria for each division rule,  general rules, code of conduct, teenage rules, and prop regulations. If you are competing in a specific division understand that you must meet the criteria for that division including specific attire, jewelry etc. There will no alterations allowed for each rule listed.  We are a family friendly atmosphere and will remain as such. 

See unsanctioned divisions below. The events marked unsanctioned will not award Professional cards and not all promoters will be offering these divisions at their contests

All divisions must have a membership card to compete and kids fitness will be the only division needing a parental consent release of liability form in leu of a membership card
