The USASF trains and certifies Legality Officials for All Star Cheer and All Star Dance on an annual basis. The certification term is based on each annual All Star season. Training courses for certification are available throughout the spring, summer and early fall. Please see below for additional information.

On-Site Legality Official Course Dates, Locations & Fees (Cheer & Dance)
Due to the current situation with COVID19 we are unsure at this time if we will be offering on-site legality official training this year. If we are able to safely add locations for on-site training we will update if and when that information becomes available.

All Legality Official candidates must:

Once a Legality Official candidate successfully passes the test in order to officially certify they must:

  1. Complete a background screening through the USASF portal in conjunction with National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) and receive a Green Light Screening Status using the designated USASF directions that you will receive once you register. Background checks are good for two years and will cost $30 for the '20-'21 season.
  2. Complete SafeSport online training using the designated USASF directions that you will receive if you pass the Legality Official Test. The cost is $20. If you completed SafeSport training as a coach or legality official last season you do not need to retake it for the '20-'21 season.
