COMPETITION DETAILS

The Spirit Consultants are excited to see you and your team at our 2021 Sonoran Desert Classic this February. We will be splitting our event into two separate weekends – one for cheer/game day and the other for dance/song/pom. TSC is focused on hosting competitive events directed at helping your program improve both on the competition floor and back at your school or studio.

All 2021 TSC events will make the health and safety of our athletes and spectators our number one priority. We will be following all state and local guidelines regarding COVID safety precautions, with specific details being sent out to registered coaches a couple weeks in advance, so that everyone can plan accordingly.

Coaches and Advisors – please note that The Spirit Consultants do adhere to and follow all NFHS spirit rules at each of our events.

Below are a few of our TSC competitive event components that you and your teams will experience at our competitions.

PRE AND POST COMPETITION JUDGES MEETINGS

After every competition, coaches wonder “Why did I get that score?” and “What does the judge mean by that comment?” At all TSC competitions, coaches will have the opportunity to meet every judge in person before the competition starts and then again after the competition ends to have their scoresheets and routine explained. TSC wants to help coaches understand the scoring process and breakdown their routine components so that every coach can then make the necessary improvements and changes before their next competition. The Spirit Consultants are the ONLY competition company to offer this service!

EXECUTION ORIENTED SCORESHEET

As all school based competitions utilize a different scoresheet, this almost always means that each company is looking for something different in choreography, style, and/or routine structure. Because of this, competition routines do not all translate well from one competition company to the next. For that reason, TSC has specifically created an execution oriented scoresheet to allow all styles of routines to be equally scored and judged at our competition. The scoresheet awards more points in the execution of the components of your routine with fewer points placed in the subjective categories of choreography, overall performance, and showmanship.

FULL FLOOR WARM-UP

The Spirit Consultants know how important your warm up can be for your squad before they take the performance floor. Too often teams are rushed through warm-ups and don’t have enough room to properly warm-up all components of their routine. To prevent these issues from occurring at our competition, TSC will be offering a full floor (9 panels) warm-up floor for every cheerleading squad in attendance. Ample time will be given to all teams on the full floor and no team will feel rushed through their warm-up process.

CERTIFIED ATHLETIC TRAINERS ON SITE

Safety has been, and will continue to be, TSC’s number one priority. The Spirit Consultants will have a certified athletic trainer and medical staff on site for our competition to quickly and properly address all medical needs. From preventative care to injury response, our staff will be there to help take care of your athletes.

COACHES HOSPITALITY SUITE

TSC will have a fully stocked coaches’ hospitality suite on site for all coaches and advisors to relax and hang out in. We’ll be sure to have plenty of food and drinks on hand for everyone and provide you with a comfortable environment to escape the craziness of the day.

GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP BANNER

All team participants will have the opportunity to win a grand championship banner. The highest team score of the day, regardless of the division, will earn the title of “TSC Grand Championship Team” and receive a TSC grand championship banner to take home.
