In 2014, American Cheer Power, a Varsity Spirit Brand, created the National Small Program Association (NSPA).

The purpose of the NSPA is to help build successful small programs all around the country. It is their goal to help small gyms grow their programs and better prepare them to become successful businesses, as well as competitive programs.

American Cheer Power began implementing National Small Program Championships under the NSPA throughout the 2014-2015 competition season. Upon conclusion of the season, the official USASF definition of Division II (formerly Small Gym divisions) was released and was defined as having one physical address for a gym location and having 125 athletes or less registered in a gym’s cheer program at the time of competition.

With the momentum and success of The Summit and The Dance Summit in May 2015 and with the USASF definition of Division II, Varsity All Star created the D2 Summit Championship- exclusively for the 125 and under.
