Hi everyone, My name is Ayanna Williams-Gaines, Director/Owner of Buffalo All Star Extreme (B.A.S.E). We would like to thank you so much for your interest in our 8th Annual “Are you Scared to Buck”. Please read all the information in its entirety so that we are all registration ready. Venue, Hotel recommendations, song list, and ticket information will be sent after REGISTRATION has been completed.
All teams must arrive and be checked in NO LATER than 9:00 am. Doors will open to the teams as early as 8 am and to the general public for entry at 11:00 am. Any team that arrives after 9:00 am will have an automatic 10 point deduction. NO EXCEPTIONS! It is imperative to arrive on time so that teams can walk the floor, get dressed, and be ready to compete. The show will start on time. The show WILL BEGIN at 12:00 pm sharp. We will have a short coaches meeting and pull numbers in the hallway at 11:30 am. If you are absent a number will be drawn for you.
The competition will begin promptly at 12 pm. All teams must be dressed and ready to hit the floor at 12 pm SHARP! We will not wait on any team to finish getting dressed. If your team has to be skipped for any reason, you will be eliminated from that category.
Please upload all music files to a flash drive/USB/Jump drive. No CDs or music played from your cell phone will be allowed. This is to ensure that the music flows correctly throughout the show. Each coach will be required to be on standby with their music at the DJ booth when their team is up next.
Stand Battle music will be sent out on September 1st, 2023
Combined Pom Pom
This category allows for the usage of Poms in a vast variety. Pom Poms must be used in 80% of the choreography. The routine must not exceed 4 minutes from intro to exit. Time will start as soon as the music begins. This category should be exciting and be filled with personality and cheerleader style choreography mixed with your team style and cheerleader competition styled music.
Combined Field Show
This category showcases majorette/hip hop/street jazz funk styled choreography that has an upbeat feel with high energy, formation changes, and an amazing variety of tricks. The routine must not exceed 4 minutes from intro to exit. Time will start as soon as the music begins.
Stand Battle (Mini) pre-k -3rd grade (jr) K-8 & (sr) 8-12th
Stands must be no more than 16- eight counts total. (1) ONE eight count is considered 18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124… We will be watching closely. Any team that goes over is automatically disqualified. Cleans will NOT count towards your 16 eight counts. ( A clean is an intro/prelude to the stand).
Note: We have no way of knowing how many stands you will need to prepare OVERALL however prepare 2 fast and 2 medium for EACH round of Battle. If we are in a time crunch and the competition runs over you may only be allowed to do 1 stand per round instead of 2. This will be at the discretion of Ayanna Williams-Gaines. Therefore, please be prepared. If in the event of a tie, there will be a 1 on 1 Captain’s Battle to break the tie.
