DENVER – Never did we dream life as we know it would be brought to such a dramatic and grinding halt in just a few weeks. The complete disruption of the cheerleading industry and our country by the recent coronavirus outbreak has left all of us wondering what life will be like into the future. A Denver, CO based start-up, CheerMatch.live
Having the ability to compete with teams around the world right from your own gym sounds appealing, but there are challenges to competing by video. “It was very important that we maintain the integrity of a cheer competition,” says Rowzee. “The app is user friendly, and creates important accountability for all teams in a match. There are timing restrictions on how routine videos are recorded and how the judges score them that closely mimic the pressure and dynamics of a traditional competition. The platform creates a complete and verifiable process, that ensures all teams will compete fairly, straight from their practice mat.”
CheerMatch.live was developed in close collaboration with gym owners, judges, and top industry leaders to offer a new way for cheer teams to compete against teams outside of their region without the costs associated with travel and on-site competitions. The concept behind CheerMatch.live remains rooted in increasing competition frequency while reducing costs. Coaches and teams can also gain valuable insight from top judges in the industry.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT CheerMatch.live?
Each submission into a Match must be recorded locally using the CheerMatch.live CAPTURE app, eliminating the ability for teams to upload a pre-recorded video, and closely mimicking the pressure of a live event performance. Teams can record 2 submissions, and choose their best for final judging. The judges portal is secure, and even has built in capability for teams to submit a score review request after receiving their scoresheets. The CML platform is designed with the user in mind – so you’ll receive automatic updates about the status of your routine submission, scoresheets, and the final results of your match.
The world around us is changing, and this includes cheerleading. In life after COVID-19, we will emerge more prepared, and more mindful about the continuous rise in costs associated with participation in all star cheerleading.
