USASF Athlete Profile
Required for all FULL YEAR team athletes
Please visit USASF.net to create your athlete profile "Member Info" and then "Athletes New". There is a how to section for parents on the step by step process on building profile. Athletes will need their birth certificate and a photo uploaded to their profile, this is easier to be done on a desk top computer. Do not forget your log in information as well as to fill out ALL the fields in the profile. You will need to request to be apart of our gym "Cheer Company of Michigan" in order to be apart of our gym profile, this is similar to requesting a Facebook Friend. There is a $30.00 fee paid to the USASF, this needs to be done in order to register athletes on our roster at competitions and performances.
Competition Hair is 1/2 up 1/2 down curly. We recommend "Curl Formers". If hair exceeds shoulder length we require athletes to put hair in high pony tail with a "bump" on top. Please see our YouTube channel "Cheer Company of MI" for our competition hair and makeup tutorial.
