"WOW Factor Cheer & Dance Nationals provided an amazing venue for teams to support each other as they competed. The environment was heart warming. Even though we all wanted to see our teams perform to their best and bring home that 1st place, you could see even with all the cheerleaders a sense of community I haven't felt at a competition in a while! From the presentation to the Adaptive Teams performing, to teams truly supporting each other's performance by cheering along with them, or coaches gathering and congratulating each other on a job well done, it really made me feel proud to be a part of such a wonderful cheer community!"

WOW Factor Sports utilizes category judging and hires specialized judges based on each score sheet breakdown to ensure that all aspects of a routine are being considered and closely reviewed.
At Nationals, your two performances will be weighted equally to determine Total Final Score. Day 1 + Day 2 = Total Final Score. This score determines division awards as well as high point “WOW Award” honors.
WOW Factor Sports believes that every teams scoring chances, regardless of age or level, should be equally weighted so every team has a fair shot at maximizing the points on our score sheet and have the opportunity to be awarded with our most prestegious award – WOW Award! High point winners in each pre-determined age breakdown will win the honor and advance to the WOW Factor Showcase!
