NashTwirl Info & Updates

It is NashTwirl week! 

Athletes, Parents, & Coaches,

We are excited to welcome 140 athletes from 20 states to Nashville this weekend for our 4th Annual NashTwirl Championships.  Attached you will find the set system, with estimated times along the left side to help you plan your day. Please print a copy (or two!) to bring with you – copies of the set system will not be provided at the contest.

Here are some important notes:

Contest location – White House Heritage High School (7744 Hwy 76, White House, TN); please use the address to get to the correct school – there is also a White House High School AND a White House Heritage Elementary.   

Central time zone – All times for the contest are Central time. Doors will open at 7am.

Practice/competition areas – Only athletes, coaches and contest staff will be allowed on the competition floor.  Coaches who were listed on an athlete’s entry form will receive a wristband upon arrival that will allow them access to the gym floor.

Athletes should remain in the practice gym until 3 sets before they compete.  For modeling & foundation events (basic, military, presentation, parade), athletes will line up in their lane to await their turn to compete.  These events move very quickly, so athletes should be lined up in their lane before the event begins. For all other events, athletes should remain in the practice gym until 3 sets before they compete.

Music – If you are competing in a group event or freestyle, show twirl, rhythmic, college/high school championships and have not already sent your music, please send your music ASAP to  We need to have time to organize music files and check to make sure all files play correctly so you can have a smooth performance.

NashTwirl Cup 14-17 & Smoky Mountain Sweetheart 14-17– Due to a large number of entries in each of these events, you will see on the set system they have been split into 3 age divisions.

Modeling – All modeling events can be performed in any formation, with or without a baton. It is not necessary to have “modeling” hair for the costume modeling event; a competition bun is perfect.  Athletes will be judged on modeling, not on hair.  We will be moving quickly from modeling to foundation events, so there will not be time to transition from modeling hair to a competition bun. 

CAS events (compulsories & movement technique) –  If you are doing compulsories or movement technique for evaluation – don’t forget your compulsory book.  It is required for all athletes who have already passed level C!  If you are doing compulsories for comments only – please be sure to tell your judge when you walk up to the table so they will know to give you recorded comments.  You do not need your compulsory book if you are only receiving comments. 

Due to the large number of CAS evaluations, we will be doing these from 8am-9am. The gym will open at 7am. We have also added a CAS meet for Sunday morning at 10am. If you are interested in doing additional evaluations, you can find the entry form attached.

Play Baton Clinic – If you are interested in the Play Baton Clinic on Sunday (8am-2:30pm at White House Heritage High School), you can find more info and the registration form here: Register for Play Baton.

We are looking forward to an exciting weekend of baton twirling, fun, and friendship!
