IFC recognises that cheerleading exists at different stages of development throughout the world and has therefore developed a 4-tier membership structure to accommodate cheerleading organisations at all levels of development within the IFC framework.

IFC is open to all legal and/or recognised national associations/federations controlling cheerleading at a national level.  However, cheerleading organisations in countries or regions where there is no approved or recognized national association/federation in existence may also apply for membership.

Fundamentally, any applicant must be non-profit and only one member from each country or region may be affiliated, and such a member shall be recognized by the IFC as the only national governing body for all cheerleading in such a country or region.
