2022 NCA High School Nationals – Go Be Great

Share This Post

Greatness is measured by how we serve others.

This past weekend, high school cheerleaders from all across the country congregated in Dallas, Texas to compete in the NCA High School National Championship. While the skills and routines showcased were top notch, so were the stories of cheerleaders serving in their schools and communities. Throughout the weekend, NCA recognized teams that had gone above and beyond in exemplifying the Roles of a Cheerleader as emphasized in the NFHS Credentialing at camp this past summer. Coaches had the opportunity to nominate their teams for a Go Be Great award in one or more of the following categories: Crowd Leader, Ambassador, Spirit Raiser, Athlete, Entertainer, and Leader.

During various awards ceremonies throughout the weekend, 7 Finalists and 4 Winners were recognized on stage for the impact they made in their communities. The teams that were recognized as finalists were awarded a Go Be Great patch and the 4 winners received a plaque that they could proudly take back to their schools. In addition, members of each squad were interviewed on stage to share what being a part of these community service projects meant to them and their teams.

Congratulations to the schools listed below for being extraordinary role models in their communities and exemplifying the characteristics of what it means to be a cheerleader.
