Varsity Beauty can be purchased online at Varsity SHOP and at future Varsity Spirit competitions.

“For all star cheer athletes, the NCA All-Star National Championship is a dream stage,” said Bill Seely, President of Varsity Spirit. “Our mission is to create a world-class sporting event that celebrates these talented, dedicated athletes and gives them a competition where they can foster memories with their teams and families.”

To kick off the championship weekend, NCA All-Star hosted “Battle in the Arena” and produced The League Live Show, giving the audience an in-depth look at how League 6 teams are doing this season by scoring their point totals and where they rank on The League leaderboard. For the first time, CheerABILITIES teams competed during “Battle in the Arena” where they showcased teamwork and exceptional performances in one of three divisions – Exhibition, Novice and Elite. NCA also presented the “Go Be Great” award to Hagerstown Legacy Elite from Hagerstown, Maryland for their work with local nonprofits and churches to help provide packed lunches and toiletries for those in need. The “Heart of a Tiger” award was awarded to Sharon Myrick from the Maryland Twisters for her advocacy in advancing the CheerABILITIES community.

The NCA All-Star National Championship was the first of its kind in 1987, created to provide a standalone all star event in which cheerleaders could be recognized for their skills, athleticism, entertainment and talent.
