Age Divisions

Ministry of Cheer age divisions follow the NZCU modifications to the USASF age grid. The age of an athlete will be taken as the age that they turn the year of the event. For example, if an athlete turns 15 on December 31st, 2017 they will not be eligible for the Junior Division.

Age divisions may be combined for specialty item entries, depending on registrations.

  • Tiny - 6 yrs & younger 
  • Mini - 8 yrs & younger 
  • Youth - 11 yrs & younger
  • Junior - 14 yrs & younger
  • Senior - 10 yrs – 18 yrs
  • Senior+ - 11 yrs & older
