State Pompon Championship

Pompon Regional & State-wide Championship

Each year, Mid American Pompon hosts the Michigan State-Wide Pompon championship, open to all middle school and high school pom or dance teams from the State of Michigan. Two regional competitions are held at which teams compete in an effort to qualify for the State-Wide Championship in February (held at Michigan State University). Each team decides which regional competition they will attend. In addition, collegiate pom teams are invited to participate in either Regional if they wish to receive scores and critiques from the judges. Collegiate Teams can also only participate in the State Championship Competition. All teams are judged and ranked by total points.
