As competition season rolls around for cheerleading, many cheerleaders are preparing for MAJORS with their team. MAJORS is the most selective competition that only the “best of the best” get invited to attend. This competition is for senior level six teams to showcase the highest level of skills in front of the teams they will be competing against soon once again.

The 2019 MAJORS will be held in Indianapolis on January 17th, with over 5,000 spectator and thousands more watching online at home. The cheerleading world stops to watch these elite teams perform and compete for the title of MAJOR champion. They will display their elite level of talent, skills, and sportsmanship while they are on stage and during the readying processes beforehand. 

As of now the invites have been sent out to each team to get them excited and ready for MAJORS. They have been selected based on previous Worlds and MAJORS placements and their popularity in the cheer world. This year fans will see many familiar teams performing along with some new ones that have joined in all the excitement.

Before the competition even gets started these teams are in the gym practicing perfecting their skills along with filming. Each competing team will create a video showcasing some of their tumbling and stunting, as well with some of their athletes and coaches speaking on what hard work goes into this competition and why MAJORS is so special to them.

The various teams competing in MAJORS love taking part in this experience as it not only celebrates these athletes on stage but off the stage as well. Traditionally the MAJORS staff holds a reception the night before for the teams. The teams dress up and celebrate qualifying for MAJORS and spend quality time with one another from their team and the many others.

Friday the teams will line up to compete. While competing, the competitors are giving everything they’ve got to make their routine perfect on stage. Each stunt and tumbling pass they do must be executed perfectly in order to receive their highest scores possible. Once these athletes are on stage this is their chance to bring the title of MAJORS champion back to their home gym.
