Golden State Spirit Association

Founded in 1999, GSSA started as the Coaches Association for California providing scholarship and performance opportunities for cheerleaders and dancers. The GSSA Championships was the sixth company to give bids to the USASF World Championships by meeting the mission statement to provide performance opportunities to teams from California. The annual GSSA Coaches Conference was the model the USASF used to start the annual conference and now regional meetings. GSSA has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to cheerleaders and dancers. GSSA hosts events in the western region and prides itself in offering above industry-standard customer service.
