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.

Built upon the foundations of spirit, tradition and excellence, NCA continues to prove The Work Is Worth It through empowering young athletes across the country. By working alongside coaches and cheerleaders nationwide at summer camps and competitions, NCA strives to build not only strong athletes but great individuals.
