The American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA) released the School Rules for 2010-11. The major changes are listed here with additional information in the AACCA Press Release.
Changes affecting all school teams:
- Released stunt transitions must be braced on at least one side. This effectively removes skills such as free-standing Tic Tocs. Load-in releases such as a Switch Lib are still allowed as they do not begin in a stunt.
- In stunts where the top person falls away from the bases in a flat body position (also known as a Pendulum) the top person must be caught by at least three catchers. Previous AACCA rules required a minimum of two catchers.
Changes affecting elementary, middle and junior high school teams:
- All basket tosses and double full twisting dismounts are prohibited on all surfaces.
