The squads have a list of technical moves that must be executed during their performance. Each move (jump, pyramid, etc) is worth a certain amount of points with the squad receiving the maximum allowable points for something done with no mistakes and so on. They also receive points on level of difficulty, appeal of performance, choreography and appearance of cheerleaders. There are a panel of judges who score their performance as they go and they are tallied up in the end. Whoever has the best overall performance and appearance will receive the most points and win.
