USASF Athlete Credentialing
Elevating the Athlete.
The USASF has brought an unparalleled training program to the All Star community. Our credentialing program develops training through proper skill progressions for athletes, allowing them to become credentialed up to the skill level they have currently mastered. By providing athletes and parents with knowledge and preparation for testing, tryouts become a smoother process and athlete motivator. Many programs incorporate athlete credentialing into their tryouts, choreography clinics, and quarterly skills checks to encourage athlete skill consistency. Periodic testing encourages athletes to move on to a higher level and promotes future training.
Athletes can be credentialed in any of three different categories: Stunts, Tosses, and Tumbling. Within each category, athletes can be tested as a Top, Base, and/or Backspot. Assessments must be provided by a fully credentialed USASF coach in their gym.
