Rules Documents

The ECU recommends to all coaches and team managers to carefully and thoroughly read all the rules to avoid any unnecessary problems at a later time. If there are any questions concerning the legality of a move or trick, please send a video well in advance to the ECU Competition Rules Committee at rules@europeancheerunion.com. This must be submitted clearly labelled with Team name, contact person name, telephone number and e-mail.
