About the National Cheerleaders Association

Founded in 1948 by Lawrence “Herkie” Herkimer, NCA was the first cheerleading company and credited with many other “firsts” – the first cheerleading camp, spirit stick, pompon, cheerleading uniform company, All Star National Championship, and more.

Today NCA trains cheerleading teams across the country at hundreds of summer camps, and hosts competitions for teams to demonstrate their athleticism.
