USA Cheer has released their Music Copyrights Educational Initiative, and as a part of the Spirit community, we have committed to sharing the information and implementing these guidelines at all of our cheer and dance camps and competitions beginning immediately. This program has been designed to ensure that the cheer and dance team community is aware of U.S. copyright laws related to music.
There is a lot of important information for all of us - event producers, coaches, choreographers, cheerleaders and dancers. To help simplify these new guidelines please read through all the information these links provide.

Due to the complex nature of the music industry before you can register for a SHOUT! event you will have to acknowledge the performance music you supply is in compliance with these guidelines & laws. You must also bring all documentation with you to each event. You must be able to produce these papers immediately upon request. If you fail to produce the documents immediately (within a 10 minute time frame) the effected team will recieve a 25 point penalty deduction.
