The D2 Summit Championship Crowns New Champions at Walt Disney World Resort

Filed in: Cheerleading and Dance, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

40 of the most talented cheer teams in the country captured championships at Walt Disney World Resort in the 2023 D2 Summit Championship. The event featured thousands of incredible performances and took place May 5-7, 2023 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

The D2 Summit Championship was founded by Varsity All Star in 2015, exclusively for small gym divisions in all star cheerleading. These are defined as having one gym location and 125 athletes or less registered in a gym’s cheer program at the time of competition. The goal of the competition is to help small cheer gyms grow their programs and spotlight their accomplishments.

This year, all star cheerleading programs from across the U.S. traveled to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to compete in a one-of-a-kind competition experience. This year’s event hosted over 1,200 teams and nearly 15,000 athletes, with more than 25,000 spectators.

Full results, including division champions, are available on Varsity TV, a website dedicated to exclusive live coverage and video libraries of Varsity Spirit cheer and dance competitions. Varsity All Star live streamed the event all weekend on Varsity TV, and videos of the routines are available for fans who were otherwise unable to attend.
