Revised schedule for 2021 U.S. National Baton Twirling Championships( Mon, Mar 15 00:03:AM)


USTA is excited to announce a revised schedule for the 2021 U.S. National Baton Twirling Championships. The schedule had to be revised after the cancellation of the IBTF Qualifiers for this year.

USTA’s Board of Directors, Director of Operations and national staff members have spent countless hours developing both the original and revised schedules. In order to protect the health and safety of athletes, coaches, judges, staff and parents, several modifications have been made to the schedule, including:

  • No Foundation events will be offered during Festival of the Future. It was not possible to maintain social distancing for those events.
  • Some National events will be held in the Ocean Center Exhibition Hall instead of the Ocean Center Arena, to allow adequate warm-up and competition space.

Please note: Depending on state and facility requirements, there could still be some minor changes made to the schedule.

In addition, there will be other health and safety requirements, possibly including, but not limited to: mask requirement, except when athletes are competing; limited number of spectators allowed in the building; limited number of athletes on the practice floor, as determined by set number, etc.

USTA will provide detailed information and regular communication about all health and safety requirements via email, the USTA website and social media, and Zoom meetings as we get closer to July.

Online entry forms for Nationals and Festival will be available soon in the
USTA Member Portal.

USTA is looking forward to again hosting the U.S. National Baton Twirling Championships – the nation’s premier baton twirling event – and doing so in a way that protects the health and safety of all participants during an exciting and enjoyable competition!
