Frequently asked questions
What is a typical competition schedule?
Event schedules are made based on the amount of routines and the quantity of each routine type registered and therefore, no two schedules are alike. We do not have a typical competition schedule but we do typically only schedule solos, duos, and trios on Friday evenings and the title competition is generally held the first hour on Saturday morning.
When will I receive my studio's schedule?
Preliminary schedules will be released 2 weeks prior to the event.
When are event programs available?
