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. Three 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). In addition, collegiate pom teams are invited to participate in the State Championship Competition. The teams are judged and ranked by total points.
NEW for 2013: Mid American Pompon will not designate which regional teams will compete at, each team will decide which regional to attend.
