2021 NCA & NDA Collegiate Championship FAQs

Virtual Divisions (2021 Only)

Our goal is that every program gets a chance to prove the work is worth this season. We are excited to announce our 2021 NCA Virtual Collegiate Divisions! These virtual divisions are only for teams who are unable to attend the live event in Daytona Beach, Florida.

GENERAL INFORMATION: Teams will be able to upload one prelims and one finals routine video to Varsity TV to be judged by NCA trained judges. ALL teams that submit a prelims video will advance to finals. Once prelim videos have been judged, teams will receive score sheets and rankings before filming their final routine videos. Routine videos will be available to watch on Varsity TV along with a virtual awards ceremony.

FILMING GUIDELINES: Teams will receive a keyword and template prior to upload dates. These templates will need to be printed and filled out to hold up at the beginning of your routine video. Once keyword templates have been sent, teams may begin filming before the upload link is sent via email. There will be a different keyword and template for prelims and finals. Please refer to our Filming Guidelines for tips and more information.


NCA will be emailing out a timeline soon that will include the dates keywords templates and uploader links will be emailed to coaches for prelims and finals along with a full timeline for the virtual divisions during NCA & NDA College Nationals.

 Teams competing in a virtual division will pay $100 per participant. There is no fee for coaches. Cheer teams wanting to add on the NEW NCA Spirit Rally Division (see NCA divisions link above) will be charged an additional $250 per team flat fee.

AWARDS: Teams competing virtually are eligible to win:

  • 1st Place Winners: 2021 Virtual Collegiate Champion Title, Trophy and Banner
  • 2nd – 5th Place: Virtual Championship placement trophy
  • 6th Place and Below: Virtual Championship certificate of participation
