Arkansas Activities Association lifts ban on cheer/spirit squad travel to away games



Arkansas – The Arkansas Activities Association has lifted its ban on out-of-town travel for high school cheerleaders and dance team spirit groups.

The announcement came in a memo sent to schools late last week. There was no mention of high school bands in the memo.

The memo stated that “Starting Monday, September 21, 2020, travel to away sporting events for spirit groups (CHEER/DANCE) will be a local district decision.”

The memo relaxes the restrictions placed by the AAA at the start of current fall sports seasons that prohibited travel by spirit groups and band to away events.

The restrictions were put in place as a response to the COVID -19 virus and efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus.
