Competitive cheerleading becomes a CIF-sanctioned sport beginning with the 2017-18 school year.

California governor Jerry Brown today signed into law an Assembly bill that brings competitive cheer under the auspices of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF).

Competitive cheer, like those national competitions seen on TV, will have a season of sport. Also cheerleaders and cheerleading teams must follow CIF rules and regulations.

A cheerleader who transfers from School A to School B will be under the same rules as an athlete who transfers; to be eligible for competitive cheer at School B, the cheerleader would have to make a valid change of residence or sit out the first 30 days of the season of sport.

Still to be defined: a season of sport for competitive cheer (fall, winter or spring) and whether all of a school's cheerleaders or just those on the school's competitive cheer team would have to follow CIF rules on transfer eligibilty.
