AAA Lifts Travel Ban to Away Games for High School Cheer & Dance Spirit Groups


The Arkansas Activities Association (AAA) has relaxed its ban on out-of-town travel for high school cheerleaders and dance team spirit groups. In a memo released by the AAA, there was no mention of high school bands in its list of spirit groups that will be allowed to travel.

The AAA memo stated in part, “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.

Resident Press will continue to follow this development and will report any new information to our readers when updates are available.
