Cheerleading Safety Policy

The Monmouth College cheerleading squad will adhere to the following safety guidelines implemented by the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA).

The following skills are prohibited at basketball and indoor courts under the safety rules:

  • Basket tosses, elevator tosses, and other similar multi-based tosses
  • Partner stunts in which the base uses only one arm to support the top person
  • Flips or twists into or from partner stunts
  • Two-and-one-half person high pyramids
  • Twisting tumbling skills

Monmouth College will extend this policy to include outdoor athletic venues, both home and away.

These safety rules will also be applied to any exhibition performances, including the Homecoming Sprit Shout.
