If your team has already ordered and filled out St. Jude Letters, bring them to camp! If your team has not already filled out St. Jude letters, please have each athlete bring two (2) addresses to camp. Remember that each athlete is required to fill out two (2) St. Jude letters for the NFHS Squad Credentialing program.
For eligible camps, you will receive an email with directions on music 3 days before camp. All directions for download can be found in the email or on varsity.com/music.

The Varsity Spirit/NFHS Squad Credentialing Program is part of our quest to continually elevate the profile of cheerleaders, whether on campus, at a game or representing your school for any occasion. We are committed to offering comprehensive training to cheerleaders and coaches, and feel strongly that this is one more way we can ensure that all cheerleaders understand their role, and are knowledgeable about cheerleading safety. The program was created in collaboration with the National Federation and is comparable to some of their existing courses. This program will be implemented at Varsity Spirit camps, and is a requirement for participation at NCA High School Nationals.
All Varsity Spirit overnight camps, resort camps, home camps, day camps, choreography camp and virtual home camps that are at least two days long (this includes the 9 hour virtual home camp) will offer the NFHS Credential. Instruction time must be long enough for all elements of credentialing to be taught. Squad Credentialing at any Varsity Spirit brand camp (NCA, NCA Leadership, NCA Speed, NCA Choreography, UCA, USA, V!ROC and Premier Camps) will meet the requirement for participation at nationals. For instance, a team could go to USA Summer Camp and this would satisfy the NFHS Credential for NCA High School Nationals.
The Squad Credentialing program applies to all school, youth, club and rec teams that compete at NCA High School Nationals.
Yes, and they would be able to receive a Bid to NCA Nationals, however, the NFHS credential will still need to be met.
Camp attendees will be required to complete a five-part checklist that will cover their role as crowd leaders, spirit raisers, ambassadors, athletes and entertainers, with an emphasis on leadership and safety
It will happen throughout camp, in Team Time, Game Day Training, Stunt Class, etc., and be indicated on the schedule.
We require that 75% of the members competing must have completed Squad Credentialing.
Yes, mascots fall under the 75% requirement, and are required to have attended Squad Credentialing.
We believe this program will help us all to elevate the profile of cheerleaders, whether on campus, at a game or representing your school for any occasion. It will also certify that all cheerleaders understand their role, and are knowledgeable about cheerleading safety.
All adults attending an overnight camp in an official capacity with the team, participating at camp and/or serving in a supervisory capacity of the team must have a USA Cheer Membership. This typically includes coaches, choreographers and chaperones. The Cheer Coach Membership is recommended, but either the Cheer Coach, STUNT Coach or Professional Membership satisfies this requirement. Membership is strongly recommended for all other coaches and team personnel that attend home camps, day camps and clinics.
Below, you will find the guidance that we believe is necessary for each identified group to follow in order to conduct a safe and enjoyable camp/clinic:
