Government restrictions on opening: ACSA has received and collated the relevant advice from Government sources for Cheerleading Gyms and Dance Studios. We appreciate the enormity of the situation as well as the vast amount of information, and even though this makes it challenging we encourage Gyms and Studios to stay up to date with the latest Government advice. We will provide more information as it comes to hand and we encourage all our wider community to remain vigilant in their own daily hygiene and social distancing practice so we can all flatten the curve of this horrible virus, and bring back the full force of the Allstar spirit into Australia.

In the meantime, we remind everyone to follow the current Government advice in their State, so we can all work together to bring the cheer and dance back into the community.
Here at All Things Cheer and Dance Australia we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes under the consultation of the WA All star gyms and school programs, HBF Stadium and the West Australian government to offer the best possible event for all. We are committed to the development of Allstar cheerleading in a safe and sustainable way.
This year has presented everyone with challenges and we thank you for attending our event. It will be an event similar to previous years but with some key differences. We have made major adaptations to provide a physical event within the Phase 4 restrictions. We are fortunate to offer physical events as we know so many have been cancelled our the country and the world.
This document is to help answer some of the questions for you and make your experience as smooth and easy as possible.
We look forward to seeing you at WA Starz 2020 and thank you for your continued support and compliance at this event.
